Listen to the Mocking Bird
by Alice Hawthorne

I'm dreaming now of Hallie, sweet Hallie, sweet Hallie,
I'm dreaming now of Hallie,
For the thought of her is one that never dies.
She's sleeping in the valley, the valley, the valley,
She's sleeping in the valley,
And the mocking bird is singing where she lies.

Chorus:
Listen to the mocking bird, Listen to the mocking bird,
The mocking bird still singing o'er her grave;
Listen to the mocking bird, Listen to the mocking bird,
Still singing where the weeping willows wave.

Ah! well I yet remember, remember, remember,
Ah! well I yet remember,
When we gathered in the cotton side by side.
'Twas in the mild September, September, September,
'Twas in the mild September,
And the mocking bird was singing far and wide.

Repeat Chorus
