Back Home Again
inIndiana (1917 – music by
James F. Hanley; words by Ballard MacDonald)
Back home again in
And it seems that I can see
The gleaming candlelight, still burning bright,
Through the sycamores for me.
The new-mown hay sends all its fragrance
Through the fields I used to roam.
When I dream about the moonlight on the Wabash,
How I long for my Indiana home.
Ball (1917 – words and music by Shelton
I'll be down to get you in a taxi,
You better be ready ‘bout half past eight
Ooh, honey, don't be late
I wanna be there when the band starts playin’,
Remember when we get there, honey
Those two steps, I’m a-gonna have them all,
We’re gonna dance off both our
When they play the 'Jelly Roll Blues'
tomorrow night at the Darktown Strutter's Ball.

In the Good
In the Good Old Summertime,
Strolling down a shady lane,
With my sweetheart, mine.
I’ll hold your hand and you’ll hold mine
And that’s a very good sign
That you’re my tootsie-wootsie
In The Good Old Summertime.

There are smiles that make you happy,
There are smiles that make you blue,
There are smiles that steal away the

But the smiles that fill my heart with
Are the smiles that you gave to me.
8. When You
Wore a Tulip (1914 – Music by Percy
Weinrich; words by Jack Mahoney)
When you wore a tulip, a sweet yellow tulip
And I wore a big red rose.
When you caressed me, ‘twas then heaven blessed
What a blessing, no one knows.
You made life cheery when you called me
‘twas down where the blue grass grows.
Your lips were sweeter than julep, When you wore a tulip,
and I wore a big red rose.

Ja da, ja da, ja da ja da, jing jing jing
That's a funny little melody
It's so soothing and appealing to me
It goes ja da, ja da, ja da ja da, jing jing jing
Where I first met
With your eyes of blue,
Dressed in gingham too,
It was there I knew,
That you loved me true.
You were sixteen, my village queen,
Down by the old mill stream! : :

Peg O’ My Heart, I love
We’ll never part, I love you.
I always knew,

With Irish art, entrance us,
Come be my own.
Come make your home in my heart.

Grand Old Flag (1906 – words and
music by George M. Cohan)
Boy (1913 – music is an old Irish
tune; words by Fred E. Weatherly)
Danny boy the pipes, the pipes are
From glen to glen and down the mountain side
The summer's gone and all the leaves are falling
It's you, it's you must go and I must bide.
But come ye back when summer's in the meadow
Or when the valleys hushed and white with snow
I'll be here in sunshine or in shadows
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy I love you so.
But when you come if all the leaves are falling
And if I'm dead and dead I well may be
You'll come and find the place where I am lying
Then kneel and say and a-wail over me.
And I shall hear the soft you trade above me
And all my grave will warmer sweeter be
And you will call and tell me that you love me
And I shall sleep in piece till you come to me.
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so...
19. Put On Your
Old Grey Bonnet (1909 – music by

Put on your old grey bonnet with the blue ribbons on it
And we'll hitch old dobbin to the shay
And through fields of clover
We'll ride up to Dover on our golden wedding day.
20. Till We
Meet Again (1918 – music by Richard
A. Whiting; words by Raymond B. Egan – a World War 1 Song)
Smile the while you kiss me sad adieu
When the clouds roll by, I'll come to you
Then the skies will seem more blue
Down in lovers lane, my dearie
Wedding bells will ring so merrily
Every tear will be a memory
So wait and pray each night for me
Till we meet again
