lyrics

Rest Your Head
(©K. Gordon)

Stars above the clouds tonight that I can’t see
Pictures swirling up in my head say what you mean to me
You're a thousand miles away
You get tired this time of day
That bad feeling ain’t all it seems
Baby rest your weary head and dream

Work is good but wants to steal away our time
Hours and frustrations lead to nothing but
Paper dollars and thin dimes
It’s here and then it’s gone
So we labor on
Polished shoes and Listerine
Baby rest your weary head and dream

Rest a while
Hear that laughing river flow
When I find it I’ll follow it
As far as it goes

Cool wind in the shadow of a redwood tree
I can’t see that bird but I’m a fool to think
it’s singing just for me
Whippoorwill or mockingbird,
Lonesome song ain’t got no words
But I think I know what it means
Baby rest your weary head and dream

Rest a while
Hear that laughing river flow
When I find it I’ll follow it
As far as it goes

And that bad feeling ain’t all it seems
Baby rest your weary head and dream
Baby rest your weary head
