Hurricane Lullaby

Mama, what’s shaking the leaves on the tree?
Hush, my child, it’s the wind from the sea,
the storm rolling in is what’s shaking me.

Mama, what makes that roaring in the wood?
Hush, my baby, it’s the rising of the flood,
you know your mama always did the best she could.

Mama, oh why do you look so full of pain?
Hush, my love, I’m drowning in the rain,
no boat can bear me through this hurricane.

Mama, oh Mama, there’s a rainbow in the sky!
Hush, my babe, it’s time you learned to fly,
You know your mama’ll be with you by and by.
