Children’s song, lullaby, U.S.A.

“All The Little Pretty Horses (Hush-a-bye)” is a traditional lullaby from the United States. The origin of this song is not fully known, although is commonly thought to be of African American origin. The lyrics talk about a mother or caretaker singing a baby to sleep and promising that when he or she awakes the child “shall have all the pretty little horses.” Many singers, like Joan Baez, Charlotte Church, Nick Cave, and others, recorded their version of the song. Aaron Copland composed an arrangement of “The Little Horses” for voice and piano as the second set of Old American Songs (1952).

The song also inspired the title of the book All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy, and consequently that of the 2000 film by Billy Bob Thornton, starring Matt Damon and Penélope Cruz.

“All The Little Pretty Horses (Hush-a-bye)” lyrics

Hush-a-bye, don’t you cry
Go to sleep, my little baby
When you wake, you shall have
All the pretty little horses

Blacks and bays, dapples and grays
Coach and six a little horses
Hush you bye, Don’t you cry
Go to sleep, little baby
When you wake, you shall have
All the pretty little horses

Way down yonder, in the meadow
poor little baby, crying mama.
Birds and the butterflies, flutter ’round his eyes,
little baby crying mama.

Blacks and bays, dapples and grays
Coach and six a little horses
Hush you bye, Don’t you cry
Go to sleep, little baby
When you wake, you shall have
All the pretty little horses
