Member Bill Crosby contributed his take on this classic song.
I was looking for songs to record for a lullaby cd and thought of this one. But, when I listened to the original recorded lyrics I was aghast : This is an extremely sad song !
So, I took out my writer’s license,saw that it hadn’t expired yet,and wrote some words I’d be more comfortable singing. This is one song that inspires audience “sing alongs” whenever I perform it.
A true classic melody.
