​Goodnight Little Arlo

This song is by Ramblin' Jack Elliott and appears on the album Young Brigham (1968).

Goodnight, little Arlo, goodnight
Goodnight, little Arlo, goodnight
Sleep, sleep, sleepy, sleep tight, sleep tight
Goodnight, little Arlo, goodnight

You've played, little Arlo, all day
Your eyes are both sleepy, I see
Your son's ridin' high and your moon's ridin' too
Goodnight, little Arlo, goodnight

Goodnight, little Arlo, goodnight
Goodnight, little Arlo, goodnight
Sleep, sleep, sleepy, sleep tight, sleep tight
Goodnight, little Arlo, goodnight

In Tatsee we cruise the bell parkway
Drive all up and down the road
Past Brighton and Coney and old Cheap's Head bay
Find a puddle and drive on home

Goodnight, little Arlo, goodnight
Goodnight, little Arlo, goodnight
Sleep, sleep, sleepy, sleep tight, sleep tight
Goodnight, little Arlo, goodnight (Head down, puffy!)

Back home you were tucked into bed
It was then that I played serenade
And now as I listen to words that you said
I dig 'em and the cords that you play

Goodnight, little Arlo, goodnight
Goodnight, little Arlo, goodnight (Head down, Arlo!)
Sleep, sleep, sleepy, sleep tight, sleep tight
Goodnight, little Arlo, goodnight
