Mick: I think you're right. Furthermore, I've noticed that sheet music from that era often contains additional verses and choruses that aren't on any recording. Which raises the question: what happened when those bands performed live, in a nightclub, or whatever venue? Did they do all the verses and choruses? Was the song cut down only for recordings?

As regards those 1 verse songs Joe, I think a lot of it was to do with the early recordings. There was usually about 1 minute of instrumental, 1 minute vocal and another minute of instrumental. With only a minute to do the vocals, they didn't have time for more than a verse and a chorus!

Who woulda thunk it was a railroad song? Thanks for solving this old mystery, Jim.

BEYOND THE BLUE HORIZON does indeed have a verse, and you can hear it sung by Jeanette Macdonald in this recording from 1950 at YouTube:

Blow, whistle; blow away; blow away the past.
Go, engine, anywhere; I don't care how fast.
On, on, from darkness into dawn, from rain into the rainbow, fly with me.
Gone, gone all my grief and woe; what matter where I go if I am free?

Well, it's a mere pop song, not a folk song, but here goes:

BEYOND THE BLUE HORIZON
copyright 1930, Famous Music Corp., (renewed 1957)

Words, Leo Robin
Music, Richard A. Whiting and W. Franke Harling

Beyond the Blue Horizon,
Waits a beautiful day
Goodbye to things that bore me,
Joy is waiting for me.
I see a new horizon,
My life has only begun;
Beyond the Blue Horizon
Lies a setting sun.


How come our parents could get by so well with these one-verse songs? Those folk songs with all the verses are real killers to memorize, especially at my age....
