Sang my two boys to sleep with this song for nearly two years each.

They loved it for a while - or at least it worked. Sadly now they get grumpy as soon as I start in. I think they're saying uh uh! It ain't gonna be that easy! I ain't goin' down like that!

Anyway, very fond memories associated with this beautiful song. I don't miss having a baby, but I do miss rocking a baby to sleep on my chest.

If you don't feel anything while listening to this song, you are a heartless and soulless person.

Favorite song I have heard on pandora so far definitely!

I could be wrong, it won't be the first time. I seem to remember this old song being a slave spiritual song in the mid 1800s. Her simple, straightforw a r d , bluegrass style certainly does the song justice. It is a thing of beauty with the a cappella group behind her. This Song is phenomenal!
