Elmer Fudd Farewell songs for the last round (53* d) Lyr Add: AND WE BID YOU GOOD NIGHT 31 Dec 06


"And We Bid You Goodnight" is popular with many performers. The Incredible String Band and the Grateful Dead sang it. (There's a thread that says it's in the DT, but I couldn't find it.)

AND WE BID YOU GOOD NIGHT

Lyrics: Traditional [Sarah Doudney]
Music: Traditional [Ira David Sankey]

Lay down my dear brothers, lay down and take your rest
Oh won't you lay your head upon your saviour's breast
I love you, oh but Jesus loves you the best
And I bid you goodnight, goodnight, goodnight
And I bid you goodnight, goodnight, goodnight
And I bid you goodnight, goodnight, goodnight

Walking in Jerusalem just like John (bid you goodnight, goodnight)
I remember right well, I remember right well (bid you goodnight, goodnight)
His rod and his staff shall comfort me (bid you goodnight, goodnight)
Tell "A" for the ark, that wonderful boat (bid you goodnight, goodnight)
Tell "B" for the beast at the ending of the wood (bid you goodnight, goodnight)
Well it eat all the children that would'nt be good (bid you goodnight, goodnight)
I'm walking in Jerusalem just like John (bid you goodnight, goodnight)
Walking in the valley of the shadow of death (bid you goodnight, goodnight, goodnight)

And I bid you goodnight, goodnight, goodnight
And I bid you goodnight, goodnight, goodnight
