My mom sang this to me and I've sung it to the babies I've rocked. Sang it to my grandson thru Skype. Always works. Only ever heard bye o bye o bye o baby repeated. Sure doesn't seem to matter. Had always wondered if other people knew this lullaby.

using the tune of Lord Dismiss us with thy blessing I sing (a lot of it I made up...):

Bye bye baby
bye bye baby
bye bye baby
Daddy's (Mommy's) baby girl (boy)

rest your head now
on your bed now
bye bye baby
Daddy's baby girl

Go to sleep my little darlin' (angel)
Go to sleep my little one (or son)

Rest your head now
on your bed now
my my baby
now the day is done

My husband and I sang all 4 of our babies to sleep to this.Have no idea where it came from. But it went: By oh baby go to sleepy town. By oh baby go to sleepy town. Momma loves you go to sleepy town. Momma loves you go to sleepy town.
Then you would sing it over and over again each time adding a different person who loves you. Daddy loves you go to sleepy town. We sang all of the grand parents in it and all the siblings, aunts, uncles. Our 1st born would not go to sleep until we sang the pastors name, loves you go to sleepy town..... Precious memories

My mother, from Texas, sang it to us as children using the melody from "Til we Meet Again". Different words....but the same tune she used.

Here's a version with Doris Day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWXQfvFoU5Q

After I posted my comment, I remembered the rest of the words my grandmother used to sing. It went like this,

"Bye oh bye, oh baby... bye oh bye, oh baby... go to sleep, grandma's girl... bye oh bye, oh baby..."

Of course the words would be changed for whoever was singing and who they were singing to, so "mommy's boy" or "auntie's girl" etc.

I have no idea who sang it, but it is my favorite lullaby and I'll sing it to my children someday.

bye oh bye oh baby... NEW
by: Brandi E

My mother used to sing to me "bye oh bye oh baby..." and her mother used to sing it to her. I have no idea where it came from, but when my niece was born, I learned it and would sing it to her. You just sing the words very slowly and drawn out. I love it.
