Subject: RE: Lullabye Land
To Jon W, thank you so much for the info about ABC format. It will take me a little time to get the idea and put it into practice I'm afraid.

Would you be willing to start a new thread on sharing tunes as well as words, and put in that link so it will be generally available? I know there has been a lot of discussion of how we can share music; I'm hoping we can bring it all together in one place.

I would absolutely love the music to "Sleepy Peedie Laddie."

About lullabies. My son loved all the usual ones, "All the Pretty Little Horses," "Hush Little Baby Don't Say a Word," as well as "Rockabye Sweet Baby James." But one night when I ran out of ideas, he said, 'Sing "Haul 'em Away."' This is a fairly bawdy sea song he had heard at our song circle when he was supposed to be sleeping. We had a friend who was a newborn intensive care nurse. She said that at least one baby in her care would always fall asleep to "Friggin' in the Riggin'".
