Song Description

Mother singing to baby about a fishing father who is on the sea.

Story Behind the Song

Song for my grandchildren

Broadjam Member Reviews

If you want to be transported into the nursery corner of a quaint little cottage in Ireland and envision a young mother rocking her baby and singing her to sleep in an old wooden rocker, this is your song. The bagpipe introduction is gentle and perfect, effortlessly moving into a keyboard arrangement, joined by a beautifully authentic vocal. I could see this used in a movie! Great job!

    - Kate Carpenter

I love the motivational sentiment of this song of a mother singing to her baby about her beloved husband who is away at sea. These are the lullabies that shape our destiny, our character, our capacity to love as we grown and learn in this crazy mixed up world. We need more of this as a world community. Bravo!

My wee barinie's dozin, it's dozen now fine, and
Oh! may its waukin be blyther than mine.
