What song did Gail Davis sing?

I need some help from the fans of TV’s Annie Oakley, Gail Davis. My mom sort of remembers a song that Davis sang either at the end of her shows or on a show. Sounds like a lullabye to me. The words are something like “Go to sleep baby, your mama and daddy love you very much.” Anyone know this song?

Maybe not the tune that you are thinking of, but I did see her sing Jimmie Rodgers' Prairie Lullaby once, in a live show, in Denver, in about 1959, backed by the Sons of the Pioneers. I made my Mom take me to the show, because it advertised appearances by several TV cowboys of the day, and (secretly) because I had a ten year old boy's mad crush on her, as much for her horse ridin' and shootin' capabilities as her very pretty looks, and she signed a program for me, too!

My old man's heart still dimly throbs at the memory. Gail Davis was great.

Response by poster: Thanks, Paulsc, but that's not it. Glad to have helped bring back some good memories for you, though.
