Subject: LULLABYES TO RECORD
From: WyoWoman
Date: 23 Jan 02 - 09:26 AM

A friend and I are going to record a CD of lullabyes over the next few months and I wanted to get some suggestions from you all for songs that we wouldn't have to pay royalties on. I don't know that we're actually going to try to sell the CD, but if we should, I don't want us to get sued.

I'm hugely excited about this project. Our voices harmonize really well together. So, as you're thinking of suggestions, keep in mind songs that have lovely harmonies for two women.

The irony is that the project is likely to be interrupted because her husband is doing the recording and they're expecting their first baby. Talk about firsthand experience.

I've been trying to remember some of the songs I sang for my kids -- mostly they were just sad folk songs -- "Babe,I'm Gonna Leave You," "All My Trials" and such. Not that all lullabyes have to be about lambies and pink bows, but I'd like to have some options that won't make us both go diving for the anti-depressants, too.

Thenkyew, ww

Hobo's Lullaby, as Spaw noted, only I change the words from hobo to baby; Hush, Hush, Time to be sleeping; don't know if there's a copyright on Prairie Lullaby, but it was always the fav around our house; also the Irish Lullaby.

Chocolate Ice cream Cone,This song I sang to all of my five children and even today they still request it but I find it's geting harder and harder to get a 55 year old son on my lap.This song was done by Rose Maddix in 1946 and I don't know if she wrote it or not,but a couple of years ago at an outdoor Jamboree in Myrtle Creek Oregon The Oregon Old Time Fiddlers were on the stage ahead of Rose Maddix who was the headliner of this event I sang this song and after the concert was over she came and told me she really appreciated paying her this tribute and she hadn't thought of that song for years.This was her last concert she died a few weeks after that Louie Roy

For two female voices my suggestions would be:

2. Lord Gregory - as done by The Corrie Folk Trio & Paddie Bell.

Good luck with the search and project.

Thanks all, these are great suggestions. I can't believe I had forgotten Prairire Lullabye! and Scarlett Ribbons. I don't know if I've heard Hobo's Lullabye, Catspaw. Is that one that's on the Trio CDs?

I'd love to hear Chocolate Ice Cream Song, Louie. Know of any recordings?

(And Stewie, yes, I knew that other thread was there, but it wasn't as specific and was getting pretty long, so rather than refresh it, I thought I'd troll for some more suggestions.)

I'll print this out before it gets too long and see which of these I can find.

Mary mentioned Suo Gan a Welsh lullaby and a beautiful one. You can hear it as a midi (with all the limitations of that format) here:

http://www.acronet.net/~robokopp/welsh/suogan2.mid

It also appears on Charlotte Church's first CD (at too fast a tempo for my taste) and is sung at the beginning of the movie "Empire of the Sun". If you're interested (it's in the public domain) e-mail me at:

Well, Matthew B., some of the songs I used to sing mine involved a lot of murder ballads and tons of unrequited love, so they weren't exactly apropros either. "East Virginia" and "Black is the Color" and "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" wouldn't pass the Lullabye Approval Board, but my kids seemed soothed by them.

This is so great. Once again, I'm blown away by what a generous lot the Mudcat community is. (Stewart, is that a yodel in the middle of the Roundup Lullabye?)

'Coorie Doon' is lovely but probably copyrighted (written by the late Matt McGinn). How about 'Bonnie at Morn', recorded by Jean Redpath for 'Lowlands' (1980), 'Hushaba Ma Bairnie', recorded by Cilla Fisher for 'Songs of the Fishing' (1983) or 'Weary Life' (you have to scroll down to it), recorded by Hamish Imlach for 'Live in Hamburg' (1986).

Thanks Willa. That looks like a great site. But I clicked on about 10 songs in the Scottish, Irish, Christmas, Cowboy (each) and I could only get to 2 Scottish songs, all the Irish songs, no Christmas songs, one cowboy song. It says that the site uses too much bandwidth...I wonder if it rotates which ones are availabe. I really like hearing the tunes that go with a song's words, so this one is bookmarked for sure.

My own personal favorite lullabyes -- and it's been quite some time since I had occasion to use 'em -- were "Kumbaya" and "Buckeye Jim." The latter is in the DT (with slightly different words), but my dinosaur computer system won't support audio, so I can't tell if the tune given is the beautiful one I know, which would be great for harmony. The DT gives no source for the song, and I certainly have no idea where it came from -- might very well be public domain.

Your CD project sounds terrific. Be sure to let us know when it's available!

This is my own, from 27 years ago, one of the three most successful songs I ever wrote--not commercially, but in achieving the effect I wanted. The tune is (though I say so, that shouldn't) a haunting one. If you like the words, contact me and I'll send you a tape. Or sing it to you on Paltalk. Or both.

Of course, substitute "girl" for "boy" as may be indicated.

LULLABY FOR A BREASTFED BABY"

Go to sleep, my little boy
Dream about a milk-filled booby!
Mama nurse you in a while
When your time has come.

When your time has come, my boy
Mama milk there'll be in plenty!
When your mama has let down
And nursin' time has come.

When nursin' time has come, my boy
Mama milk will fill your tummy!
With the nipple in your mouth
You'll never need your thumb!

Trying desperately to find information regarding a song by the name of Chocolate Ice Cream Cone. My grandfather taught it to my father when he was a wee lad and my father taught it to me when I was knee-high to a grasshopper. However, none of us know who wrote or performed it. I promised both of my partners in confusion that I would investigate further. Also, there is another song called Emmaline. I'm not sure about the spelling but it should be close. We aren't sure who wrote that little gem either. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

CHOC'LATE ICE CREAM CONE
Recorded by Kenny Roberts
Writer: Famous Lashua

My mama said if I'd be good
She'd send me to the store
She said she'd bake some Gingerbread
If I would sweep the floor
She said if I would make the bed
And watch the telephone
That she would send me out to get
A Choc'late Ice Cream Cone
And so I did the things she said
And then she made some Gingerbread
Then I went out, just me alone
And got my Choc'late Ice Cream Cone.

While coming back I stubbed my toe
Upon a big old stone
Now need I tell you that I dropped
My Choc'late Ice Cream Cone
A little puppy came along
And he took a great big lick
And so I hit that mean old dog
With just a little stick
Then he bit me where I sit down
And he chased me all over town
So now I'm lost, I can't find my home
And all because of that Choc'late Ice Cream Cone.

TAG:
And all because of that Choc'late, Choc'late,
Choc'late Ice Cream Cone.

Thanks Mellisa! Still trying to find the author of the song Emaline. Ever heard of it? The lyrics are as follows:

There was a boy named Emaline. Hung three red shirts out on the line. He had a goat in his back yard. Tied to a post and pulling hard. Well the goat got loose from Emaline. And he ate those shirts right off the line. Then Emaline got mad and said. I wish to goodness that goat was dead. So he took him down to the railroad tracks. And he tied him there flat on his back. Then around the bend came a fast express. I'll leave it to you to guess the rest. Sing some sad songs but not goodbye. For that old goat was too wise to die. He had a scheme in his old brain. Coughed up those shirts and flagged the train.

Of course the song always ended with my sister and I making our obligatory train whistle sound effect. TOOT TOOT!!!! If anyone can help me with this I would be grateful. Thanks.
