Subject: RE: Lullabye Land
I think Barges would qualify as a lullabye. It has a beautiful, gently rolling melody, like the Mississippi. It's in the DT. I first encountered this song when my sisters learned it at Campfire Girl camp in Minnesota. They, however, only learned the first two verses. This shortcoming was compensated by the fact that they learned to sing it in two part harmony and in rondo--exceedingly pretty when done this way.
