GUEST,Laura School Songbook Index PermaThread (113* d) 5th grade music textbook 14 Sep 05

Hope this question is in the right place (please move or delete if not!)

I'm looking for the name of my elementary school music textbook(s). The songs that I remember are The Ballad of the Bluenose, Happiness Is, I Can Sing a Rainbow, and "As I was walking the streets of Laredo..." I don't know whether they're in one book or two, since I'm not positive that we sang them all in the same year. The books were used in Southeast Missouri, 1978-1981 (but were quite possibly older copyrights).

I've searched everything I can find here and found references to a couple of the songs (though I don't recall the book calling the last song "The Cowboy's Lament"), but none of them are together or have any other songs that ring a bell. Searching at UTK has given me nothing, so far. Any suggestions of other places to look or better techniques would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
