Tune of the Day: Go Tell Aunt Rhody
Traditional nursery rhyme
Probably of French origin, this tune is, by some, attributed to Jean-Jacques Rousseau, to whom it is said to have come in a dream. This nursery jingle eventually became the universal lullaby of the pioneers and has been found in every part of america as “Aunt Tabby”, “Aunt Sarah”, “Aunt Nancy”, “Aunt Dinah”, “Aunt Susie”. It is also known as “The Old Grey Goose”.
