The Plant Kingdom: Grassy Grass Grass

Woody & Arlo Guthrie: Grassy Grass Grass

The tiny kidfolk piece - a world-naming lullaby of elegant simplicity - was first released as a drum and voice duo on 1947 release Songs To Grow On For Mother and Child, thus fitting for the waning hours of Mother's Day.
