   Golden Slumbers
by John T. Marck



Golden Slumbers

One day while Paul was visiting his father at his Cheshire home, he began playing the piano, and looked through a songbook that belonged to his stepsister, Ruth. (His father, James had remarried by this time.) In this book he came across a traditional lullaby by Thomas Dekker from the 17th century. But, as he was unable to read music, he began to make up his own melody and new lyrics, and Golden Slumbers was born.

Once there was a way,

to get back homeward,

Once there was a way,

to get back home

Sleep pretty darling do not cry,

and I will sing a lullaby

Golden slumbers fill your eyes,

smiles awake you when you rise

Sleep pretty darling do not cry,

and I will sing a lullaby

Once there was a way,

to get back homeward,

Once there was a way,

to get back home

Sleep pretty darling do not cry,

and I will sing a lullaby
