LULLABY,  

words and music by Tony Chapman © l989

 

C                          Cdim7 

touch of velvet pillow

          F             

satin sheets their smooth 

       G                         Am   Cmj7   Fmj7

silk softness will caress

C                            Cdim7 

walk in rainbow fields

                            F                       G 

where all the harvesters of dreams

                         Am     Cmj7    Fmj7 

with rainbow scythes

                Cmj7,   G#   C#     G4   G2 G

silently reap -  go      t       sleep

 

I am here I will protect you 

behind me the windows filled with night

outside stars like eyes of cats 

looking inquisitively through the glass

eagerly peep - go to sleep 

 

eider down will warm you 

as moon shadows, like a lover's hands so soft 

responsively, sensitively, delicately 

falling on your skin

tenderly creep - go to sleep 

 

Instrumental: chords: F,Eb, D, C#,

                                         F, Eb, D, C#, F

                                     G4 G G2 G

 

 

there's no rain tonight only a breeze 

that carries life from alien worlds

let the U.F.O.'s approach you

pick their signals up like missiles on 

- the radar's sweep - go to 

G4, G,  A°, A7 

sleep

 

D                             D°                       G

worries won't infect you all the wicked wolves

     A                                       Bm     Dmj7  Gmj7 

of life have sheathed their claws

D                                     D°           

count them as they jump like birds

     G                                A                     Bm, Dmj7, Gmj7 

across the wet quicksand innocently

                         Dmj7   Bb    Eb     A4, A, A2, A

disguised as sheep - go    to     sleep
