Uke Lyr Req/ADD: Only a Leaf from a Rosebud (22) RE: Lyr Add: Only a Leaf (Australian ... ?) 15 Nov 05

That is interesting... although the other NLA piece of sheet music states it is an arrangement by John Crook "on the Famous melodies by J. Slater & T.B. Fayme."

The Crook arrangement is quite long, and perhaps contains a "trio" or another melody apart from the standard verse/chorus of "Only a Leaf". Also, the "Magazine No. 5" version says the copyright is held by Slater in Sydney. Perhaps either he or Fayme were falsely claiming authorship? Who exactly wrote what is a puzzle.
