Far away from friends and loved ones
'Midst the storm, a soldier lay
Gathered 'round him all his buddies
Raised his head, we heard him say
There's a lamp light in the window
Where an angel from above
Gently rocked my baby cradle
With such tender care and love
Mother dearest, darlin' mother
It would ease this awful pain
If she'd sing until I'm sleepin'
Rock my cradle once again
'Neath the palms, tonight, he's sleepin'
On an island far away
Though the years pass on in sorrow
I still recall his words today
There's a lamp light in the window
Where an angel from above
Gently rocked my baby cradle
With such tender care and love
Mother dearest, darlin' mother
It would ease this awful pain
If she'd sing until I'm sleepin'
Rock my cradle once again
