For Emerald Lee, of course. Welcome home.

D Dsus2 D G
  Emerald  dreams in her  mother's  arms...
D5 D A
Tell me  what are her  dreams made  of?
G A D A
  Warmth and  rest at her  mother's  breast;
D G
  Sunlight and songs and  love...

A Asus4 D Dsus2 D
  Fishes dream  in the  deep  green  sea;
G D A
Birds  rock in the  treetops  tall;
G A D Dsus2 A
  Diamonds  hide in the  cold  dark  mines
D G A
And  dream no  dreams at  all.
D Dsus2 D Dsus2 D
But  Emerald  sleeps in her  mo ther's  arms
G D A
  Cradled  close and  warm;
G A Asus2 A Dsus2 D
Her  father  sings  her th is lulla bye
D G A
And  keeps her  safe from  harm.

refrain

I held my daughter in my arms
On the morning of her birth.
All afternoon I watched her sleep
On her first day on the Earth,
And as she slept her tight-closed eyes
Were moving to and fro,
But what she saw in her life's first dream
No one will ever know.
refrain
D G D
  Sunlight and  songs and  love...

Written two days after the birth of my daughter Emerald Lee, and it's all true. I wrote it as her own private lullabye, but it turned out she prefers ``The Mary Ellen Carter''.
