I’m looking for the origins to a song my grandmother used to sing to us, here’s what I remember…
Go to sleep little baby.
The wind’s from the west
and the turkey’s on its nest.
and I can’t get my rest for the baby.
The old sheep lost its lamb
way over in the holler,
the buzzards and butterflies
pecked out its eyes
and the poor little thing cried mammy.
If anyone knows anything about this song, perhaps even where it’s sung, please let us know in the comments below.
