Thread Name: Scottish lullabies, please
Subject: RE: Scottish lullabies, please
While we are on this one, there was a Scottish lullaby/ballad that had to do with the Highland evictions that I can't seem to find. The chorus went:

Hush, Hush, time to be sleepin
Hush, Hush, dreams come a creepin
Dreams of peace and of freedom
Don't cry in your sleep, Bonnie Baby

Any got the complete lyrics and chords?

This song, properly known as "Smile in Your Sleep," was written by Jim McLean. It appears unattributed in the Digital Tradition, under the title Don't Cry In Your Sleep (click). Tune and more complete lyrics are in this thread (click)
