    ------ About the song That Little Boy Of Mine performed by Bonnie Owens

Oh my gosh, this really was a published song!! So nice to read all the comments and realize that somewhere else in the world others treasured the memory of their mothers and this song. My mom always sang this to me, and when I was older, I asked her if this was a "real" song. She couldn't remember, so I just always thought it was a song she made up. I think I googled it some years ago, but mistakenly put in "That little girl of mine", as she changed the word to suit me, and so I did not find it! So glad I found it now and read all of your poignant comments, as my mother is reaching the end of her journey here on earth now, and it's nice to know that this song means so much, not only to me, but to so many others. Thank you for sharing your memories.

I just got done singing this song to my daughter | Reviewer: Carl
    ------ About the song That Little Boy Of Mine performed by Bonnie Owens

This is the song that I went to sleep hearing night after night sung to me and my brothers, by my dad. I never considered this song being song by a mom or grandma. In our family it was always my dad with his mega bass voice, and now it's me in my family singing to my son and daughter, 7 and 8 and soon will be singing the song to my baby daughter whose just 3 months old.

When my dad visited a while back, I asked him to put the kids down and sing to them, and I couldn't believe hearing him sing this lulu bye brought tears of joy to my eyes.

    ------ About the song That Little Boy Of Mine performed by Bonnie Owens

In 1946 when I was a four year old, I did not like to take naps. My mother , sitting in a regular chair would hold me in her arms and rock me while singing "That Little Boy Of Mine" Of course, her gentle singing always worked and I would fall asleep. Like so many others, I thought this was just a family song that had been sung from generation to generation.

    ------ About the song That Little Boy Of Mine performed by Bonnie Owens

My oldest brother died on November 2, 2012 and we took my 92 year old Mother to his Memorial Service. On the morning of the service my Mother got ready to leave and she stood behind the sofa while my youngest brother sat and I was standing in the next room. She gazed out the sliding glass door at the sky and started to sing the song that we had both heard so many times. She sang it all the way through and with a lump in her throat ended with "That Little Boy of Mine. My brother Bob was 71 years old.

    ------ About the song That Little Boy Of Mine performed by Bonnie Owens

My Mother sang this song to all 7 of her children and many, many grand, and great grand children as well. She loved children and made all of them feel loved at all times, She passed this song down through 5 generations and she lived to be 90 years old and never forgot the words. My Mother learned it from her Sister. I have a brand new great grandson and have been singing it to him each time I am lucky enough to hold his precious little body in my arms, I hope to do it for many, many years to come, I truly believe it is an infinite song, and I love it. Thank you Bonnie Owens

    ------ About the song That Little Boy Of Mine performed by Bonnie Owens

I had no idea that this was a published song! I grew up listening to my mom and Granmother singing it to me, and hearing stories of how she sang it to my mom as a little girl. I thought it was a song passed down from generation to generation in my family. My Grandmother was one of 10 children and were a singing family "Holm Family String Band" - and they used to travel to different churches to sing. So naturally, I thought it came from there :)). So excited to learn about Bonnie Owens and here her sing it!

    ------ About the song Wait A Little Longer Please Jesus performed by Bonnie Owens

Great job on my song. After all of these years, it still hurts that this song was stolen from me when I was just a teenager of sixteen. Nothing was changed in words or music. I have spent thousands of dollars fighting for justice for this song and others. Maybe someday it will all come out and the truth will be known.

love your song | Reviewer: theress hewitt
