GUEST,Texas Guest Origins: 'Angels Watching Over Me' (27) Origins: 'Angels Watching Over Me' 26 Sep 07


Well, it's my turn again - to ask for help. There is a wonderful
childrens song/lullaby with the title, "Angels Watching Over Me."
I've a recording of it from back in the early part of last century but there are no liner notes of consequence and I would like to know where it came from.

The net has proved fruitless, so far, except for a site where the
owner states that there is a book of the same name and that the song is an old negro spiritual. It certainly sounds like an old spiritual so I wouldn't contest that statement; however, I'd like to know more - can anyone add anything? The recorded version I have is sung almost as if it were a sea chanty,...so... Cheers.
