Thread Name: Origins: John o' Dreams (Bill Caddick)
Subject: RE: John O' Dreams
I think "John o' dreams" would be based on the old scots lullaby "Dream Angus".
Angus was a mythical gaelic figure who brought dreams to sleeping children.
The dreams were always good and brought peace .
"Dreams to sell, fine dreams to sell,
Angus is here with dreams to sell.
Hush little baby and sleep without fear,
Angus has brought you a dream my dear"
