That's very pretty, Marion. Nice playing.

The American version of this song was written by James Murray and the English version,also known as "Cradle Song," was written by William Kirkpatrick, both in the late 19th century.

patty, karen, macy, james cheryl, benjamin, phil and folkfan - thanks for your kind comments. and phil thanks for the tab. I got a ukelele melody from which i had to fiddle from 'F' to 'd' (bit of a head-scratcher) so its slightly different. will try the tab you have provided to compare.thanks again, marion

12/01/13 09:27:54PM @folkfan:

Could someone point me in the right direction as far as a dulcimer tab of the British version of Away In A Manger, so I could give it a shot?

Beautifully done. Mary Christmas

I love this British version of Away In A Manger - different melody then what we use here in America, but a good kind of different. Plus, I do like the Merry Christmas at the end :) Keep up the good work Marion!
