Henry My Son

We've been listening to a lot of old Pete Seeger around the house. Big Boy loves it. His favorite song is "Henry My Son," a ballad about a boy who eats something bad: "Mother be quick I got to be sick and lay me down to die." There are only a couple obscure versions of the song on YouTube. Here it is music hall style in the mid seventies.

Update: Well, that takedown was quick. Weird. Here's another, very straightforward version.
