1. Odin's Lullaby

From the recording Barefoot

Dedicated to Odin McDougall

I wrote this song at Blissfest 2009. I only went to Blissfest because my friends Buck and Angie bought me a ticket. In exchange I agreed to babysit their son on Saturday night. He slept soundly while I sang quietly just outside the tent. Late into the evening he awoke and I held him in my arms singing him back to sleep. It was a powerfully moving experience. In the morning these words were scribbled on the back of a pack of guitar strings.

The Players:

NJT - Vocals and Guitar
Greg Baxter - Music Box


Go to sleep, little baby, go to sleep. . .

Mom and Daddy love you so much, and I do too. . .

Go to sleep, little baby, go to sleep. . .
