Thread Name: Lyr Req: Kentucky Babe (Buck, Geibel, 1897)
Subject: Kentucky Babe
I am trying desperately to find the complete words to a song my dad sant to me as a child. It begins (as well as I can remember almost 60 years ago!) "Bees am a humming round, that litle girl of mine, Sleep, Kentucky Babe; Sandman am a coming to that little girl of mine, Sleep Kentucky Babe; Babe of old Kentucky, you are mighty lucky, fly, away to dream, dream, Fly away, Fly away to dream." Many of these phrases may be wrong. There were several versus. I have a two week old grandchild I have been trying to sing it to! Thanks
