Appalachian folk music

I am searching for the title and background of a lullaby which was passed down about a “Little brown-eyed boy and a little blue-eyed girl.” I don't know the title. My ancestors migrated across the Appalachians over several generations after their arrival from England to Virginia in the 1650s to North Carolina, TN, and Arkansas, arriving in TX in the 1850s. I feel like it is an old Appalachian folk song and want to find out its history and title.

What a rich history you have! I hope someone comes up with the song. I have looked around but not found it. I'm sorry.

What are the lyrics to the song? Or maybe you can sing it and post it.
