My mother's mother was a schoolteacher in the Detroit area around 1910 or thereabouts, and among the subjects she taught in grade school was music. My mom remembers learning songs from her mom's big songbook in the 20's and 30's, including such treasures as:
- Believe me if all those endearing young charms
- When you and I were young, Maggie
- Just a song at twilight
- A capital Ship (Walloping Window-Blind)
She remembers that the book had tunes only, one line of notes rather than arrangements/accompaniments.
She would love to find a copy of that songbook -- and so would I; I have been learning many of these to please her. Before bothering y'all, I did search the threads on songbooks, but most of those are from the 50's. Anyone have an idea what this one might be?
(by the way, I am a Mudcat member; I seem to have lost my cookie)
