Hush Little Baby

Hush Little Baby is an old song traditionally used to sing your child to sleep when they cry. 

This tune is super easy with just two simple chords! It's repetitive, as most children's songs are but you can also change the strumming feel to keep it interesting - but as a lullaby, you probably don't want to get too active with it.
