I found some nice chords for this song in the beautiful key of Am and adapted them to fit the lyrics that are used in Linda Saport’s illustration:

ALL THE PRETTY LITTLE HORSES
Traditional Words and Tune

Am             Dm
Husabye, don’t you cry

G                              Am
Go to sleepy little baby

Am                        Dm
And when you wake, you’ll have cake

G                              Am
And all the pretty little horses

G                              Am
Blacks and bays, dapple grays

G                                  Am
Coach and six little horses

Am             Dm
So hushabye, don’t you cry

G                              Am
Go to sleepy little baby
Am                  Dm
Oh, Mother dear, where’s your lamb?

G                                   Am
I left him down in the meadow

Am                       Dm
Birds and bees, singing in the trees

G                                      Am
Poor litlte lamb cried “Mammy”

Am              Dm
So hushabye, don’t you cry

G                              Am
Go to sleepy little baby

 

Am              Dm
So hushabye, don’t you cry

G                              Am
Go to sleepy little baby
