Music for Fridays; Go to Sleep Little Babe

From one of my favorite movies O Brother, Where Art Thou , this is the sirens song. Our three convicts, on the lam and rushing to retrieve some ill gotten loot before it gets covered over by a lake, encounter three sirens singing a lullaby. The Coen Brothers loosely based "O Brother, Where Art Thou" on Homer's Odyssey. The lullaby, "Go to Sleep Little Babe" was song by Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss, and Gillian Welch.
