Deep Blue Heather

Copyright Doc Pablo, 1999

(Begun as a random a capella lullaby to try to get Miranda to fall
asleep while riding in the car. Now Miranda insists that I sing it to
her at "lights out" every night.)

Close your eyes my weary child
soon we'll be together,
Close your eyes and dream a while,
of the deep blue heather

  From my watch upon the shore
  while you're sleeping sweetly,
  I could ask for nothing more
  loving you completely

Close your eyes and go to sleep;
Remember that I love you
On the quiet ocean deep
moon and stars above you

  Long before we two were 'twain
  Springtime always found us
  Blazing in the mountain's green
  heather all around us

So close your eyes my weary child
soon we'll be together,
Close your eyes and dream a while,
of the deep blue heather
