It was written by Judy Canova, if that helps.

I'm looking for the real, complete lyrics.

My parents used to sing this to me. I found complete lyrics 12 years ago when my son was born. Now, I'm again searching.

My childhood lullaby
by: Kevin

My grandmother sang this to me as a child...only a slight variation...as I remember it was a Chocolate Pony, not a Shiny one.

Nonetheless I spent nearly every weekend at my grandparents house growing up. The song just happened to pop into my head tonight and I thought I would just do a quick search to see what popped up on Google.

I am so glad I did. I was able to get Judy Canova's closing of her radio show in which she sang it. Judy's Wiki page said she learned the song from her mother so its clearly been around a LONG time.

Interesting enough the old recording from Judy's show even sounded like my grandma, which brought tears to my eyes. Here is the link I hope it does for anyone else who was song this as a child.


The MP3 was available for download and the song is at the very end of the recording.

I believe this one was sung at the end of every Judy Canova show back in the days of radio.

It must have been written by someone but I don't know who or when.
