Appalachian lullaby in the key of Em (1 sharp), with no lever or pedal changes. Fingerings, chord symbols, and lyrics are included.
The origin of this song is not fully known. The song is commonly thought to be of African-American origin.
The author Lyn Ellen Lacy is often quoted as the primary source for the theory that suggests the song was “originally sung by an African American slave who could not take care of her baby because she was too busy taking care of her master’s child. She would sing this song to her master’s child”. However, Lacy’s book Art and Design in Children’s Books is not an authority on the heritage of traditional American folk songs, but rather a commentary on the art and design in children’s literature. Still, some versions of “All the Pretty Little Horses” contain added lyrics that make this theory a possibility. Source: wikipedia
