8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
The day is over and it's cares and woes,
In peaceful sweet repose, will fade and die.
A dreamy dreamland beckons you and me,
How happy life would be if we could dream forever.
Goodnight sweetheart, 'Til we meet tomorrow.
Goodnight sweetheart, Sleep will banish sorrow.
Tears and parting may make us forlorn,
But with the dawn a new day is born. So I'll say,
Goodnight sweetheart, Though I'm not beside you.
Goodnight sweetheart, Still my love will guide you.
Dreams enfold you and in each one I'll hold you.
Goodnight sweetheart, goodnight.
Listen to Eddie Peabody play "Goodnight Sweetheart" on the Banjoline (mp3)
