Alison Krauss, Gillian Welch, Emmylou Harris sing a capella in the style of Appalachian gospel. Three women together – a Maria tryptich. Outside my window a blackbird is singing as I put the last words into this post. It’s going to be a good day.

go to sleep you little baby
go to sleep you little baby
your momma’s gone away and your daddy’s gonna stay
didn’t leave nobody but the baby

go to sleep you little baby
go to sleep you little baby
everybody’s gone in the cotton and the corn
didn’t leave nobody but the baby

don’t you weep pretty baby
don’t you weep pretty baby
she’s long gone with her red shoes on
gonna need another loving babe

don’t you weep pretty baby
don’t you weep pretty baby
you and me and the devil makes three
don’t need no other lovin’ babe

go to sleep you little baby
go to sleep you little baby
come and lay your bones on the alabaster stones
and be my everlovin’ baby
