It's "You're the Flower of My Heart, Sweet Adeline", 1903, in the Levy sheet music collection (in Mudcat's Links). Box 150a, item 108.

Interestingly, you can hear a 1977 recording of Threadbare Consort singing 'Sweet Adeline' at the Lost Folk Tapes website www.lostfolktapes.com.

Why are(female) barbershop quartets often given the name of Sweet Adelines?

Dunno, but there was, and possibly still is a female barbershop group called 'The Sweet Adelines'. I remember seeing them around 30 years ago when a U.S. barbershop contest was televised. I think they were a Barbershop 'choir', but memory could well be at fault. The best male barbershop quartet I ever heard was in the same competition. They were called 'The Pacific Airs'.

Send "Sweet Adeline" Ringtones to Cell

Cut this picture into you and me
Burn it backwards, kill this history
Make it over, make it stay away
Or hate'll say the ending that love started to say

There's a kid a floor below me saying "Brother, can you spare
Sunshine for a brother, old man winter's in the air"
Walked me up a story, asking how you are
Told me not to worry, you were just a shooting star

Sweet Adeline,
Sweet Adeline,
My Clementine,
Sweet Adeline

It's a picture-perfect evening and I'm staring down the sun
Fully loaded, deaf and dumb and done
Waiting for sedation to disconnect my head
Or any situation where I'm better off than dead
