This song is called “Bring Me Little Water Sylvie” and was written by American folk and blues musician Lead Belly. It has been performed and recorded by many groups. Some of my favourite recordings are by Sweet Honey in the Rock and The Wailin’ Jennys.
I love the quality of soft yearning this song evokes. I usually sing it at the end of classes when there is a strong quality of stillness. I hope you enjoy my version of this song!
