When the kids were babies I would sing to them every night. I had a list of lullabies:
*Baby Mine, Dumbo
*Nice and Easy, Sinatra
*Miss Otis Regrets, Nancy Wilson
*Go to Sleep Little Baby, O Brother Where Art Thou
*Goodnight my Angel, Billy Joel
*Sweet Dreams Little Man (Godspeed), Dixie Chicks
and, of course, Sweet Baby James by James Taylor
It is Sweet Baby James that has "stuck" with the kids as THE lullaby song. They both call it the "cowboy" song and demand (mostly politely) that I sing it to them whenever it's my turn to put them to bed (and sometimes when it's Bryan's turn).
In case you haven't heard it, here it is (also, this was recorded on my birthday 11 years before I was born, so kick ass).
And here is the kids helping me sing the final chorus. They, of course, don't sing it as loudly when I record it. But it's still sweet.
