In Florida Among The Palms

Year 1916

Words and Music by Irving Berlin

Successfully introduced by Bernard Granville in Zigfield Follies of 1916

Waterson, Berlin and Snyder Co
Strand Theatre Bldg.
Broadway at 47th St
New York

  First Verse
Everybody sings of the sunny South, That's the song that clings to the singer's mouth, They ragtime it and boost the climate way up to the sky, I never cared a lot for the Swanee shore, There's another spot that I'm rooting for, I've been there and I must declare, it can't be praised too high.

Second Verse
Florida was named very prettily, By the man who claimed it's discovery, He spent hours among the flowers and called it "God's Land" and nature seems to sigh "it's my favorite," That's the reason why Heaven gave her it, It was born from a diamond worn upon an Angel's head.

Chorus
Won't you come back, Dixie, Bring back the sunshine that you took away with you, All the world seems dreary Without you, dearie, I am lonely for you only; Down in the land of cotton You're not forgotten, The springtime is calling for you, We will love each other, like dad and mother, Come back, Dixie, Dixie, do.

Lookout Mountain

Lookout Mountain

Year 1917

Words by Joe Goodwin Music by Halsey K. Mohr

Shapiro Bernstein and Co.
224 West 47th Street
New York

  First Verse
Dear old Lookout Mountain, look for me From your mountain height above, While you're watching over Tennessee Won't you look out for the girl I love, Tho' I left you both to roam around All my romaing days are thru, You won't doubt When you find out I've been true to both of you:

Second Verse
Everywhere I've been I've heard them boast Of the treasures that they own, Clear from Maine to that Pacific coast All their wondrous beauties I've been shown, Every state has treasures, I'll admit, But I know a thing that's true, They own up they were shown up If they looked at both of you:

Chorus
There's a girl I love who waits on Lookout Mountain, With a mountain of love for me, On the winding path where first we found each other That is where I long to be, She is sweeter than the songs the birds are singing Back home in Tennessee There's a girl I love who waits on Lookout Mountain, With a mountain of love for me.

You'll Always Be The Same Sweet Girl

Year 1915

Words by Andrew Sterling
Music by Harry Von Tilzer

New York

  First Verse
Come and sit beside me little girl of mine Let me watch the lovelight in your eyes divine, How I bless the day, that sweet day you came my way, I do love you, When I told the sweetest story ever told, Then I won your heart and won a heart of gold, Years may come and go you'll always be the same I know, my heart has told me so.

Second Verse
On the day we met dear you were there, In love's garden and a sunbeam kissed your hair, My first love I knew, for my heart went out to you, Just you love my dear, How my heart was beating when you whispered "yes", How my heart was yearning for that first caress, Lo've first tender kiss dear, from two lips that sweeter grow, my sweetest girl I know.

Chorus
You'll always be the same sweet girl that's why I love you, You'll always have the same sweet way so good and true, For you remind me of one other That's my own sweet Mother, just like me I know she loves you too, your eyes remind me of the stars that shine above you, for when I met you dear I found a precious pearl And when gold is turning gray you'll have the same sweet way, You'll always, yes you'll always be the same sweet girl.

Colleen Bawn

Year 1906

Words by Edward Madden
Music by J. Fred Helf

Illustration by Starmer

Helf and Hager Co. Inc.
48 W. 28th St.
New York City

  First Verse
Colleen Bawn the golden dawn is rising over Killarney, The minstrel boy to war has gone And left behind his blarney, The harp that once thro' Tara'r hall Now rings a war like story, It's calling me across the sea, To fight for love and glory

Second Verse
Colleen Bawn when I am gone I wonder will you miss me, DOn't be afraid some other maid Will fall in love and kiss me, For if they do I'll think of you A waiting here and sighing, I'll drop my gun and start to run, And home a flying.

Chorus
Colleen Bawn your tears are falling Kiss me farewell my Colleen, Can't you hear the pipers calling 'Tis the wearing of the green, Wear the shamrock that I gave you, 'Twill remind you when I'm gone A cushla this is what I sing A bushel o' kisses I will bring For you my Colleen Bawn.

My Mother's Evening Prayer

My Mother's Evening Prayer

Year 1920

By Bud Green, Charlie Pierce and Al Dubin

M. Witmark and Sons
7 Witmark Building
New York

  First Verse
For every heart that wanders from home, A prayer is said each night And though there's danger where you may roam That prayer will lead you right. I've wandered far from mother's knee No harm can come to me.

Second Verse
I seem to see her heavenly smile, At every winding lane And as I roam I know all the while Her prayers are not in vain. Though darkened shadows seem to fall, Sunshine will follow all.

Chorus
Fortune smiles on, sorrows are gone, Clouds never pass my way. Burdens are light, both day and night No matter where I wander. Some magic charm keeps me from harm, And always holds me there. I have banished my fears For I know God hears My mother's evening prayer.
