Subject: Lyr Req: 'Bobby and his sled'
From: GUEST,snicklebugs5

I am trying to find the final lyrics for a song my Grandpa used to sing to his grandkids. It is called "Bobby and his sled". Here is what I remember:

When Bobby was a little lad, I knew him years ago
He used to take his sled to school whenever there was snow.
He was a gallant little lad, he had a heart that was filled with pride.
Every day he'd take the little girls for a ride.

One day Bobby came to school with an apple in his hand.
He told the girls to stand in line, obeyed was his command.
Then he threw the apple far away and turning 'round he said:
"The one who brings my apple back may always ride my sled."

Well, a rush and scamper and all the girls ran quickly for the prize.
And soon a pile of pinafores was all that met my eyes.
Suddenly a little girl with cheeks like roses red
Demurely brought the apple back and blushing hung her head.

Well, she rode that day on Bobby's sled and every day of course.
Its hard to tell who liked it best the rider or the horse.
But certainly they kept it up all through the winter long.
'Til springtime smiled upon the earth and all the snow was gone.

The years went by, the girl she grew in beauty and in grace
And Bobby's 19th year had put a mustache on his face
Discarded was the little sled for a team of grey's and sleigh
Fulfilled the promise he had made to the little girl in play

One day to the Parson's drove and there before them all
She promised to love Bobby and his sled and all
And now my story's ended," said Grandma with a sigh.
The little boy was your grandpapa and the little girl was I

(This is the part I don't remember too well)
So they rode that day on Grandpa's sled and the children laughed with glee.
Now rush and scamper off to bed as quickly as can be.....?????



Thanks for any help!
Mom of 5 snicklebugs

The New York Public Library has the sheet music of BOBBY AND HIS SLED by J. S. Fearis (Chicago: J. S. Fearis Co., 1894).

Click here and then click the image to see a larger image of the sheet music cover.

Unfortunately, the rest of the sheet music isn't viewable online.

Here is the song my grandma used to sing to me and my sister when we were kids:

Bobby and his sled

At evenings tide the little boy
on Grandma's rocker climbs
He'd beg for that old story
He'd heard so many times

He'd always long to hear it
just before he went to bed
the story that his grandma tells
of Bobby and his sled

Now Bobby was a little boy
who lived long years ago
he always road his sled to school
whenever there was snow

One day Bobby came to school
an apple in his hand
he told the girls to form a line
for they were his command

He threw the apple far away
and turning round he said
"Whoever brings the apple back
shall always ride my sled"

Helter skelter everywhere
the girls ran pelmel for the prize
when suddenly a little girl
with cheeks of roses red
demurely brought the apple back
and blushing hung her head

She rode that day on Bobby's sled
and everyday of course
twas hard to tell who liked it best
the rider or the horse

Your Grandpa there was Bobby
Grandma said with a sigh
Your Grandpa there was Bobby
and the little girl was I
Your Grandpa there was Bobby,
the children laughed with glee
Your Grandpa there was Bobby
and the little girl was me

Now off to dreamland go, each bright curly head
to dream of little boys and girls like Bobby and his sled
