It's All Over Now, Baby Blue

Speaking of scaring children, why was that baby's cradle up in the treetop? Why couldn't some responsible adult go up and rescue that poor kid before the bough broke, and, most importantly, why the hell have parents been using it to scare millions of innocents as they drift off to sleep for the past several hundred years? Someone must be held accountable for the long term damage this has done. Can't we get some sort of reparations for this?

Native americans used to hang their babies in the trees, wrapped inside their cradleboards. It's an horrific thought, but I imagine it sung by couquering white invaders cutting the cradleboards out of the trees after slaughtering the parents. Why anyone would sing this to their child as a lullaby is beyond me. When I sang it to mine, I made up alternate words.
