Hush Li'l Baby (The Mockingbird Song)


by Traditional
Hush li'l baby, don't say a word
Mamma's gonna buy you a mockingbird

D - - - / A - - - /    / D - - - //

If that mockingbird don't sing
Mamma's gonna buy you a diamond ring

If that diamond ring turn brass
Mamma's gonna buy you a lookin' glass

If that lookin' glass gets broke
Mamma's gonna buy you a billy goat

If that billygoat won't pull
Mamma's gonna buy you a cart and bull

If that cart and bull turn over
Mamma's gonna buy you a dog named Rover

If that dog named Rover won't bark
Mamma's gonna buy you a horse and cart

If that horse and cart fall down
You'll be the sweetest baby in town
