harpgirl African American Secular Folk Songs (150* d) ADD: Go to Sleep Little Baby / Go to Sleepy... 05 Jun 05


Here's a lullaby from "Step It Down" Games, Plays, Songs& Stories from the Afro-American Heritage, by Bessie Jones and Bess Lomax Hawes

GO TO SLEEP LITTLE BABY

Go to sleep little baby, little baby,
Before the booger man catch you.

All them horses in that lot,
Go to sleepy, little baby

Go to sleep, go to sleep
Go to sleepy, little baby.

Mama went away and she told me to stay
and take good care of this baby.

Go to sleep, go to sleep,
Go to sleepy, little baby.

All them horses in that lot
Go to sleepy, little baby
Can't you hear them horses trot?
Go to sleepy, little baby

Go to sleep, go to sleep
Go to sleepy, little baby

If I rock this baby to sleep
Go to sleepy, little baby
Someday he will remember me
Go to sleepy little baby.

Go to sleep, go to sleepy
Go to sleepy little baby.
