Leroy Van Dyke — Now I Lay Me Down lyrics

(Go to sleep, go to sleep, go to sleep)
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray tonight that I won't weep,
For the girl who went away,
And left mje here to hurt this way,
If I die before I wake,
At least my heart won't ache,
Now I lay me down... to sleep.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/leroy-van-dyke-now-i-lay-me-down-lyrics.html ]
Bless the girl that I still love,
May she find true happiness,
And make me strong enough
To overcome this loneliness,
The sandman's waiting patiently,
But there's too many memories,
I know tonight that I won't sleep,
So I lay me down... to weep.
Now I lay me down... to weep.
