Jeannie Hutchison SA1974.12.7
Jeannie learned this lullaby from her grandmother.
Hushy baa, hushy be, hushy baa, my peerie Betty
Hushy baa, hushy be, hushy baa, now lie still.
Lie still in dy cradle I’ll rock what I’m able,
Ef do winno lie still, do’ll just greet all da while.
Dy Mammie is awa tae da well for some water
An’ if do be’s good, she shune will come back.
But if do be’s bad, she will geng wi da beggars
That stands at the door for to tak her awa’.
