The tune is a traditional UK/Appalachian lullaby, and the version I learned it from was featured on Doc Watson's "On Praying Ground."

The new lyrics are by me, and are loosely based on the creepy-ass horse stuff in The Ring. - Madison "Metricula" Roberts

Hush my child, lie still and wonder
Who it is that we must feed?
Iron hooves and silver bridles
All the pretty horses in the stable freed

Ride on backs of dappled ponies
Ride away to find the lake
Slip into the lapping water
Hurry, child, these first steps take

Silt and sand in living water
Come, my child, and close your eyes
Let the cold rise to embrace you
Let the pretty pony lead you with her cries

Golden sleighs and silver bridles
Silver bells and golden throne
Finest crystal sets the banquet
Why have you come here all alone?

Hush my child, lie still and wonder
Who it is that we must feed?
Iron hooves and silver bridles
All the pretty horses in the water bleed
