BARFOOT FLOORS - NICOLETTE LARSON

NOTE: It was written by Neil Young.  Nicolette explains on the CD that she

first heard the song while singing backup vocals for Neil (during Comes A

Time, I think, and it obviously did not make it to the album) and later asked

him if she could put it on her lullaby CD.  I've never heard Neil perform

this one, but my guess is that he would use G, C, and D in place of the A, D,

and E Nicolette used....  If you have trouble going to sleep at night, or

have young children, get this CD!  It is very mellow, and I highly recommend

it!  Just remembering the many nights I spent pacing the Barefoot Floors with

my little ones brings a tear to my eye....



VERSE 1:

A

Sleep, baby, sleep

A

I know your day has been oh so long

D

Sleep, baby, sleep

D                        A

I know your day has been oh so long

E

The night falls at your feet

E

Now the day feels so complete

E           D

Compared to darkness

D            A

Sleep, baby, sleep



VERSE 2:

Talk, baby, talk

Sweet talk is all it's made of

Talk, baby, talk

Sweet talk is all it's made of

Promises of the morning ways,

New beginnings for another day

To spend together

Talk, baby, talk



instrumental passage - A E D A (similar to 2nd half of verse)



VERSE 3:

Love, baby, love

Has got me walkin' on these barefoot floors

Love, baby, love

Has got me walkin' on these barefoot floors

Find the light surrounding you

Sleep the night, 'til morning's dew

I will be here for you

Love, baby, love
