From the liner notes of Folk Legacy's CD "The Music of Ann Mayo Muir" titled "Little Dan"

Little Dan, Little Dan,
Sifting gold in an old fry pan,
You're half a baby and you're half a man,
And I'm waiting at the top of the hill,
Singing:

Come home, all my children,
Come home, that's what I said.
Dark is a-falling, hoot-owl's a-calling
All in the wagon and home to bed.

Little Mary, little Mary,
Catching fish with a thread and a berry,
Sun's going down and your bones are weary,
And I'm waiting at the top of the hill,
Singing:

Chorus

Little Joe, little Joe,
Tracking unicorns in the snow,
You've gone about as far as you can go,
And I'm waiting at the top of the hill,
Singing,

Chorus

Little Dinah, little Dinah,
Muddy overalls and a blue bandanna,
Digging a hole clear down to China,
And I'm waiting at the top of the hill,
Singing,

Come home, all my children,
Come home, that's what I said,
Dark is a-falling, hoot-owls a-calling,
All in the wagon and home ...
         To bed.
