Thread Name: Old German Songs website
Subject: RE: Old German Songs website
My great grandmother used to sing a German lullaby to my grandmother and her sister when they were little. It was only years later that she told them it was about a husband who kills his wife, puts her in a gunny sack and throws her in the river. I would LOVE to find this song if anyone has any idea what song I'm referring to. I can only mumble the first few lines of the song, so I do not know how the German lyrics go... otherwise I would type them here for you (as I know it would be of more help in finding the song).

I'm hoping any of you can help me! Thank you.
