About the Song
"Lavender Blue", also called "Lavender's Blue", is an English folk song and nursery rhyme dating to the seventeenth century, which has been recorded in various forms since the twentieth century. It has a Roud Folk Song Index number of 3483. A hit version of the song, sung by Burl Ives, was featured in the Walt Disney movie, So Dear to My Heart (1949). It was Ives' first hit song, and renewed the song's popularity in the twentieth century. Another hit version of the song was recorded by Dinah Shore. This song became popular again during the 1950s rock and roll era, when it was sung by Solomon Burke. Whilst he did change some of the words, the lyrics are generally the same. Sammy Turner released it in 1959 and it hit number 14 on the U.S. R&B chart and number 3 on the Pop chart. Glyn Poole recorded another version that was included on his 1973 album, Milly Molly Mandy.[2] On their 1985 album Misplaced Childhood, the English progressive rock band, Marillion, recorded a song called "Lavender", which was derived from the folk song.    Download this sheet!
