about

Adapted by Red Yarn from the traditional version. I learned this variation of “All the Pretty Horses,” arranged by Maybelle Stith, from Carl Sandburg’s 'The American Songbag' (1927).

lyrics

Go to sleepy, little baby
‘Fore the Booger Man catch you
When you wake
You’ll have a piece of cake
And a whole lot of little horses

Go to sleepy, little baby
‘Fore the Booger Man catch you
When you wake
You’ll have a piece of cake
And a coach and four little ponies
A black and a bay
And a dapple and a gray
Go to sleepy little baby…
