| SMILE IN YOUR SLEEP (Hush, Hush)|
Hush, hush, time to be sleeping,
Hush, hush, dreams come a creeping,
Dreams of peace and of freedom,
So smile in your sleep Bonnie Baby.
1. Once our valleys were ringing,
With sounds of our children singing,
But now sheep bleat till the evening,
And shielings lie empty and broken.
2. We stood with heads bowed in prayer,
While factors laid our cottages bare,
The flames licked the clear mountain air,
And many were dead by the morning.
3. Where was our proud Highland mettle,
Our men once so famed in battle,
Now stand cowed, huddled like cattle,
And soon to be shipped o'er the ocean.
4. No use pleading or praying,
Now gone, gone, all hope of staying,
So hush, hush the anchors a-weighing,
Don't cry in your sleep, bonnie baby.
