Transferred from the Help Forum. I've e-mailed the sender and asked him to give us more of what he recalls from the lyrics.

I am trying to remember a song that my Mother sang to me when I was a small kid. I think the name of the song was " Li'l Blossom". I would love to get a copy of the words and possibly a copy of the music. > > If any one could help me I would truly appreciate it. > > W. Ken McCoy

Say, Kendall - if at all possible, it's nice if you can post the lyrics here so everybody can see them. I know that presents an ethical problem for some, especially for people who are trying to make a living from music - so I can understand if you feel you can't post 'em.
On the other hand, I think the posting of lyrics here can be an advantage to most songwriters, as long as proper attribution is given.

OK Joe, your point is well taken, and, I have no problem posting the lyrics to Little Blossom here. However, I need to know if I have the right lyrics. (The ones he requested) I kinda think the one in the data base is not the one, but, when I hear from ken mccoy, I'll take it from there. Thanks for the suggestion.

LITTLE BLOSSOM

Oh dear I'm so tired and weary, waiting for mother to come,
She told me to close up my pretty blue eyes and when I awoke she'd be home.
I think I'll go out and find daddy, he's prob'ly dropped in at the store,
It's a long pretty store filled with bottles, and, I wish he would go there no more.

I remember one night when he came home, he stumbled and fell up the stairs,
Then as his anger possessed him, he kicked at my poor little chair.
Mommy was all pale and frightened, she held me up close to her breast,
She called me her poor little blossom, and I guess I've forgotten the rest.

So, into the night went the baby, her little heart beating with fright,
But, God's lighted candles in heaven, she saw them all sparkling and bright.
The little girl entered the bar room, her voice ringing out sweet and clear,
I knew this is where I would find you, and now I am glad that I'm here.

Oh daddy the lights are so pretty, and daddy the music is sweet,
I guess it's 'bout supper time daddy, 'cause Blossom wants something to eat.
For a moment the red eyes gazed downward, into the face sweet and fair,
For a moment the devil possessed him, and he grabbed up the back of a chair.

In a moment the demon had left him, but the work of his deed was complete,
And poor little innocent Blossom, lay broken and crushed at his feet.
God, pity the women and children, who live in this alcohol age,
And God take away all the alcohol that leads to destruction and rage.

IO have first hand knowledge of this kind of behavior, although my father went to physical abuse. being ignored was as bad, maybe worse.
