It's much too still, I hear no crying

Seems I've always had a weakness for dark, disturbing ditties concerning babies. They speak to me (the songs, not babies).  I've even tried my hand at a few. Perhaps the most delightfully dismal of them all is Dolly Parton's "Down from Dover." I suppose this is a cover of a cover, as I've had Marianne Faithfull's rendition on heavy rotation for a couple of months. Once again, all credit due to Philip McArdle. He even made my scratchy, hoarse vocals sound intentional. Philip, you're a wizard.
