All the Pretty Little Horses | Free Beginner Piano Sheet Music

All the Pretty Little Horses is a traditional lullaby from the United States. Although the origin and historical background of the song are sparse, All the Pretty Little Horses is said to be of African-American origin, and can be traced back to the days of slavery. The author of Art and Design in Children’s Books, Lyn Ellen Lacy, suggests that the song was sung by an African-American slave who could not take care of her own child as she was too busy taking care of her master’s child.

All the Pretty Little Horses Lyrics

Hush-a-bye, don’t you cry,
Go to sleepy little baby.
When you wake, you’ll have cake,
And all the pretty little horses.

Blacks and bays, dapples and greys,
Coach and six-a-little horses,
Hush-a-bye, don’t you cry,
Go to sleepy little baby.

Hush-a-bye, don’t you cry,
Go to sleepy little baby,
When you wake, you’ll have cake,
And all the pretty little horses.

Way down yonder, down in the meadow,
There’s a poor wee little lambie.
The bees and the butterflies pickin’ at its eyes*,
The poor wee thing cried for her mammy.

Hush-a-bye, don’t you cry,
Go to sleepy little baby.
When you wake, you’ll have cake,
And all the pretty little horses.
