A Kansas Lullaby


which can be sung to Jim Bottorrf's playing of the tune to 'Peter Cotton Tail'

(Lyrics by John Henderson based on Cousin Mark Henshaw's 1974 poem of the same name)

Sunflower blossoms glow again, right across the strawb'ry plain,
Where the vast prairie wheat fields meet the sky.
Blackjack breezes hum their way, thru barbed fences ev'ry day,
To the tune of a Kansas lullaby.

Lazy dust clouds lift and drift o'er ever stretching squared-off fields,
That appear to reach close near-by where the rising Rockies lie.
And,
Tractor cowboys take noon-time rest, in cool spots they know are best,
To doze-off there to a Kansas Lullaby.

Sunflower blossoms glow again, right across the strawb'ry plain
Where the vast prairie wheat fields meet the sky.
Blackjack breezes hum their way, thru barbed fences ev'ry day,
To the tune of a Kansas lullaby.

Coyotes howl at ev'ning trains, a tired farmhand counts the days' gains,
Then kicks-off his dusty boots nearby, and heaves a weary sigh.
When,
From some porch a guitar clear, strums to tell folks far and near,
He's playing their very-own Kansas Lullaby.
