Thread Name: Lyr Add: Sleepytoon / Sleepy Toon (Norman Kennedy)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: (Hiring Fair) Sleepytoon
There is indeed a lengthy note on the song in volume 3 of Greig Duncan (too lengthy to post here). From the beginning of the note - "The farm was officially named Christ's Kirk, with Sleepytoon appearing as the title after 1870. Adam Mitchell, named in the song was farmer from the 1840s to 1858."
