about

Jimmy’s Lullaby
This is about the healing power of music written to comfort a grieving friend. A song about a song, Jimmy’s Lullaby recommends listening to Jimmy Little’s amazing album Messenger, in particular, his version of Paul Kelly’s Randwick Bells. I was trying to capture the optimism and warmth of Randwick Bells and remind my friend to keep looking forward for glimmers of hope. Later when my own mother was dying, I played her the song, the last music she heard, and it took on a new significance for me.

lyrics

Jimmy’s Lullaby - J Gronow

Verse 1
Is your heart, broke?
Then follow my advice
Take comfort in the majesty and grace
Of the messenger of love

Chorus
Oh, I know you’re tired
Come here, Rest those eyes
Lay down and surrender
Forgive yourself, to Jimmy’s lullaby

Verse 2
Peace, will come to you
Maybe not tonight
But some time, in the dark uncertain future
There will be a light

Repeat Chorus
