Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Bed Is to Small
Hi,

I learned the song at Girl Scout Camp MayFlather in the 1960's and also recorded it on my first CD "If You Sing Songs." Here's my webpage www.ceimd.com/folksing.htm and here's how I sing the song. My the way, Marion "Candy" Sutton could sing the whole thing in "duck talk"...amazing!

Bed is Too Small

I learned this song at camp May Flather in the 1960's

Bed is too small for my tiredness Give me a hill topped with trees. Tuck a cloud up under my chin. Lord, blow the moon out, please.

Rock me to sleep in a cradle of dreams. Sing me a lullaby of leaves Tuck a cloud up under my chin Lord blow the moon out please
