Lyrics:

"The Cattails of Rum River Creek"

G C G,C,G
The night's getting late for us darling.
Am C G, D
I know you're bone tired, too.
G C G
We've done our best to be patient,
Am C G
Though I fear a pardon's overdue.

Em C G
Hold your tongue, like an Angel.
Em C D
Dream away your gloom. (cause the).

G C G,C,G
Night's getting late for us darling.
Am C G,C,G
We'll need a good night's sleep, real soon. (I'll dream)..
Bm C G D
chorus: Bed me down softly, in the cattails, of Rum River Creek.
Bm C G
Unwind like the rivers, of warm Okebogee,
D
as she trails to the sea.

Instrumental: verse

When morning arrives, we'll be grateful. To sing another day.

We'll do our best to be patient, Once again, we earnestly pray.

chorus: Bed me down softly, in the cattails, of Rum River Creek.
Unwind like the rivers of warm Okebogee, as she trails to the sea.

Cause the nights getting late for us darling, we'll need a good nights sleep, real soon. We've done our best to be patient, though I fear a pardon's overdue. And I fear a pardon's long overdue.
END
