Rock That Cradle. Lucy

American old-timey breakdown, originating in Georgia I believe.

Rock That Cradle, Lucy

The lyrics that are often sung to the first eight bars of the tune.

1) Rock that cradle, Lucy,
Rock that cradle long;
Rock that cradle Lucy.
Keep that baby warm.

2) Rock that baby, Lucy,
Rock that baby spry (or high);
Rock that baby, Lucy,
Don’t let that baby cry.

3) Rock that cradle Lucy,
Rock it Lucy Long,
Rock that cradle Lucy,
Keep that baby warm.
