Lullaby for my Daughters

Take a look before goin
Gimme one last eye shine
Drop your guard baby girl mumma’s got the night time
I’ll stay one more minute my darlin, watch you surrender
I’m in no hurry, one day you won’t need my strong hand so tonight baby I give you everything I can
I wish you big dreams my girls but mumma can’t think about
You two out in that big black world
It’s gonna make your soft hands hard baby, we’re all the same
Promise me you’ll get up every time you fall, again, again, again
I hope you find someone to tie your laces and kiss your morning faces
Don’t settle baby, kiss the boys and make them cry
Fall hard baby mumma’s here, I gotta shot gun and a warm fire
I’ll always bring you home baby,
Wrap your heart in mine
