By which of course I mean the all-inclusive American definition. Whatever you mean it to be.

Anyway, we are recording for a CD project and I was looking at the list and realized we do not have a single lullaby from USA..of course we are mostly a nation of immigrants and lullabies would have been sung in many languages..but except for Kentucky Babe I'll be darned if I can think of any...Hobo's Lullaby that is a new composition.

Anyone have any ASAP? We are very heavy on the Irish and Scottish ones....

and no..my mother was not the lullaby type.

This is a compilation CD by Masguda S., a Tartar ethnomusicologist now living in Seattle...she has collected an awesome number of lullabies at Northwest Folklife..

that bathing one is lovely. By Hush little baby do you mean the mocking bird one? there is als o all the pretty little horses. I am hoping to have some African American singers on at least one song and I think that one has African American origins...

Baby Rocking Medley by Rosalie Sorrels. Lullaby by Leonard Cohen from his latest album, Old Ideas. Yes, laughing Len has written a very pretty, soothing lullaby.

As a young cowboy I sang the "Cowboy's Lullaby" and the "Streets of Laredo" to my children. Also "Hush Little Baby don't say a word" and Guthries "Hoboes Lullaby" previously mentioned.There were more but I have forgotten them. Laredo was my favoutite as it has a very soothing melody.

Woody didn't write Hoboes Lullaby, it was Goebel Reeves.

Yes, Dave Hanson, that's a common misconception.
