She grew up with the children of the stars
In the Hollywood hills and the Boulevard
Her parents threw big parties, everyone was there
They hung out with folks like Dennis Hopper
And Bob Seger and Sonny and Cher

She feels safe now in this bar on Fairfax
And from the stage I can tell
That she can't let go and she can't relax
And just before she hangs her head to cry
I sing to her a lullaby, I sing

Everything's gonna be all right
Rock-a-bye, rock-a-bye
Everything's gonna be all right
Rock-a-bye, rock-a-bye, rock-a-bye

She still lives with her mom outside the city
Down that street about a half a mile
And all her friends tell her she's so pretty
But she'd be a whole lot prettier if she smiled once in a while
'Cause even her smile looks like a frown
She's seen her share of devils in this angel town

Everything's gonna be all right
Rock-a-bye, rock-a-bye
Everything's gonna be all right
Rock-a-bye, rock-a-bye, rock-a-bye

I told her I ain't so sure about this place
It's hard to play a gig in this town
And keep a straight face
It seems like everybody's got a plan
It's kind of like Nashville with a tan

And everything's gonna be all right
Rock-a-bye, rock-a-bye
Everything's gonna be all right
Rock-a-bye, rock-a-bye

Everything's gonna be all right
Rock-a-bye, rock-a-bye
Everything's gonna be all right
Rock-a-bye, rock-a-bye

Everything's gonna be all right
Rock-a-bye, rock-a-bye
Everything's gonna be all right
Rock-a-bye, rock-a-bye, rock-a-bye
Bye bye, bye bye
