Carnie’s Lullaby

Copyright 2013
Dan Pelletier

Isn’t it quiet where the carnival has gone
The tilt-a-whirl and the barkers have moved on
The last of the cotton candy melts into the grass
Even the sweetest things won’t last

Shayla, shay, la-la-la, Shayla, shay, la-la-la
Shayla, shay, la-la-la
Shayla, shay, la-la-la, Shayla, shay, la-la-la
Shayla, shay, la-la-la

Isn’t it lonely where the carnival’s passed through
Working the midway walking hand and hand with you
Didn’t I win for you, didn’t I sin for you
Didn’t I ring the bell, I guess you never can tell

Shayla, shay, la-la-la, Shayla, shay, la-la-la
Shayla, shay, la-la-la
Shayla, shay, la-la-la, Shayla, shay, la-la-la
Shayla, shay, la-la-la

Haul down the riggings roll up the lights
Lock down the trucks we’re on the road tonight
Hush my baby please don’t you cry
Though nothing is sadder than a Carnie’s Lullaby

Oh, love the road is gonna rock you off to sleep tonight
Hypnotized by the rhythm of the passing streetlights
Oh, love the road is gonna rock you off to sleep tonight
Hypnotized by the rhythm of the passing streetlights

Roll on wheels roll on wheels roll on wheels roll on
