The Rose Of The Mountain Trail

The Rose Of The Mountain Trail

Year 1914

By Jack Caddigan and Charles A. Brennan

Jerome H. Remick and Co.
New York and Detroit

  First Verse
Far away on a mountain trail way down in Mexico Every day when the sun is sinking low and the tropic breezes blow There I stray to a flower bower near a bungalow To my Rose who is waiting there.

Second Verse
Moon shines bright on that mountain trail way down in Mexico Its love light shining like a beacon there on the blackness of her hair Wondrous sight in among the cactus of the mountain trail Just one Rose growing all alone.

Chorus
On the Mountain Trail, there's a Rose that grows so wonderful Its the only Rose that the Mountain knows, It was placed there Just for me and I will take her soon on a saddle back Honeymoon I'll strike a golden claim when I change the name of the Rose of the Mountain Trail.

Down At The Baby Store

Down At The Baby Store

Year 1904

Words by Alfred Bryan
Music by Harry Von Tilzer

New York City
  First Verse
"Mamma" sighs a lad, "I'm lonely, since our baby's gone away," As he looks toward a mansion, where some children are at play; "Can't I have a little sister, tell me aint there any more?" Mamma hides her tears and answers, "Yes dear, at the baby store;" 'Cause we're poor I have no playmates;" says the lad with tear dimmed eyes, "Some one there will surely love me," Then he drops his toys and sighs:

Second Verse
By an orphan home he pauses, sees the children round the door, In a childish voice he whispers, "This must be the baby store;" Spies a lonesome little lassie, golden hair and eyes of blue, Takes her by the hand to mamma, says "I've brought her home to you; For like me she's poor and lonely, and her mamma dear is dead," Then he puts his arms around her, As with childish pride he said:

Chorus
Down at the baby store, Down at the baby store, I'll find a girlie that looks like you, Nice golden hair and sweet eyes of blue, I'll bring her home to stay, With me she'll always play; There's one I am sure, Who'll love me though I'm poor, Down at the baby store."

Just Across The Bridge Of Gold

Just Across The Bridge Of Gold

Year 1905

Words by Andrew B. Sterlin
Music by Harry Von Tilzer

Harry Von Tilzer Music Publishing Co.

New York City

  First Verse
Once we were poor, mother darling, Cried a sad child one day, Now we are rich but I'm lonely, Longing for sister May Oft in my dreams I can see her, Kneeling beside my bed Where is she now, mother tell me, Softly her mother said:

Second Verse
We were so poor little darling, May always loved us so, And when he asked her to marry, She would not answer "No," Her heart belonged to another, From him she had to part, For you and me, little darling, Your sister broke her heart:

Chorus
Just across the bridge of gold, Where the lights are shining bright, Just across the bridge of gold, There's an aching heart tonight; For the sake of those she loved, All her happiness she sold, And tonight we will pray, For your dear sister May, Just across the bridge of gold.

When You're Good You're Lonesome

When You're Good You're Lonesome

Year 1920

Words and Music by Grace Doro

Jerome H. Remick and Co.
New York and Detroit

  First Verse
I feel so sad and lonely I wish I knew just why Every one is happy, While all I do is sigh. I walk the straight and narrow path I'm good as I can be; Maybe that's just what is wrong, For it seems to me.

Second Verse
My mother always told me "Be very, very good;" I took her advise, Like a good child always should. I went to bed at eight o'clock But what did that get me? I have missed an awful lot, Now I plainly see.

Chorus
When you are good, you're so lonesome, And when you're lonesome you're blue; Sometimes it seems very hard to believe Every dark cloud has a silver lining I think it'll get me a sweetie who'll make afuss over me, Just love and pet me all the day; Then I'll never have to say When you are good you're so lonesome, And when you're lonesome you're blue.

Rose Of An Hour

Rose Of An Hour

Year 1920

Words by Percy Edgar
Music by Harry Scott

Premier Music Co. Ltd.
London, England

  First Verse
I stand in the garden of loveland, Unwanted and all alone, Why did you make me care for you? Ah, had I only known.

Second Verse
The bee to the blushing red rosebud, Still whispers his messages true, But here I wait a faded rose, Ne'er comes a sign from you.

Chorus
The rose of an hour was my love for you, You took it then cast it aside I must regret and I know you'll forget Tho' you called me your joy and pride. At first when we met you were good and true, But now we have drifted apart, The rose of an hour was my love for you, And the thorn still remains in my heart.
