Subject: There's Silver In Your Hair Dear

I'm trying to find info on an old song. Some of the lyrics are:
    There's silver in your hair dear
    The roses have faded away.
    The snows of December have taken the place
    of the beautiful flowers of May.
    There's silver in your hair dear
    and the flowers near depart
    There's silver in your hair dear
    But there's gold in your heart.
Can anyone help me,
Cookie

Gee, you'd think we could find this one. It's not in Levy, and it's not at the Library of Congress.

Sorcha's info is from the Kirk Collection (Univ Indiana) here. There doesn't seem to be anything else about it on the web.

Cheers!

The above link no longer works. The Kirk Collection can now be found here. But only the index is available online (just what Sorcha gave), not the actual sheet music.

There are also copies at U.Illinois Music Library Nos. 358, 1517.

For $21.95 + $5.00 carriage you can have it put on CD (with other song of your choice from an available list, I think) from original Edisons of the 20s at Babson Records

Lawrence Wright also wrote songs under the name Horatio Nicholls and was responsible for Among My Souvenirs. You'll find information about him at Lawrence Wright.

Both he and Warton David have references online, but despite checking a lot of lyric databases I can find no online version of the music/text.

From the sheet music at The Archive of Popular American Music at UCLA:


THERE'S SILVER IN YOUR HAIR (BUT THERE'S GOLD WITHIN YOUR HEART)
Words by Worton David; music by Lawrence Wright

1. Long years of joy we've spent together.
We've share. the rain and sunny weather;
But still to me your dear eyes shine,
As on the day God made you mine.

CHORUS: There's silver in your hair, dear; the roses have faded away.
The snows of December have taken the place of the beautiful flow'rs of May.
Your eyes have lost their brightness, but the love-light will ne'er depart.
There's silver in your snow-white hair, but there's gold within your heart.

2. We've heard the voice of springtime calling.
We've watched the leaves of autumn falling;
But though the years have come between,
The mem'ry lives of what has been. CHORUS
