sing4peace Favorite Lullabies (88* d) RE: Favorite Lullabies 23 Sep 09

My dad told me he used to play "Uncle Pen" on the banjo to get me to sleep. Two of the few songs I ever heard my mother sing were: "The Frozen Logger" and "Lord Randall".

I was learning "Lady Dysie" at the time my daughter was a baby and found it's melody quite sleep promoting. Bloody awful lyric line though. Talk about early class conditioning.

If you are interested, I have a lullaby posted on myspace. I guess this would be a good time to try the blue clicky thing. Let's see if this works:    (doesn't look blue from here, hmmmmm)

If that didn't work: you can go to and go to "A Lullaby In War Time". I wrote it while I was watching a battlefront news report with the "mute" on.

In hope and song,
