Has any child actually seen/heard this lullaby?

A couple of months ago, I posted a lullaby to YouTube that my dad used to sing to me in childhood. One of my preschool kids came in one day, singing it at the top of her lungs (and getting all the words wrong), so I decided to learn it and record it. The result is the link I'll attach. Many of you have probably heard this before. It's a classic lullaby that was popular during the "folk scare" of the 1950s and 1960s. If you have any small children or grandchildren in your life, could you be so kind as to play it for them? I want to know if it has the intended sedative qualities. I'll attach a photo of the girl who inspired this piece. She was always singing and dancing, and that got me to singing and dancing. We'd sing "The Hills are Alive..." and "I Am Sixteen Going on Seventeen..." together on the spur of the moment.This became one of "our" songs. If you add me to your "subscribed" list, you'll make my day.

@TheHorse Lol My mind was actually working when I heard it, so I was able to figure out the answers before it "answered" the questions. I must be having a good day... LOL It reminded me of the ballads or "folk songs" from the 60s or 70s.
