Subject: RE: Tune Req: 'The Face on the Bar-room Floor'
I added the tune to Mudcat MIDIs - Click to play. This is for the abbreviated Skelly/Williams song. I don't know of a sung version of the well-known D'Arcy version of the poem.
Oh, and I came across this photo (click) of the Face, at the Teller House in Central City, Colorado. I saw the Central City Face when I was working in Denver in 1999. Can't say I was impressed. As I recall, the Central City Face is dated 1932.
I'm still looking for the early version of the poem - anybody have any luck? I'm still looking for a volunteer to go to Gainesville and look for the Titus version.
