Can anybody help with the lyrics to this old song?"
thanks....god bless.
Here is all I have to this song...

She's just a lost sister and nobody miss her
She's there in a city that has no pity
In a city that has no heart.

Nobody cares if she laughs or cries
Nobody cares if she lives or dies
She's there in the city that has no pity
In a city that has no heart.

(There is also a midi file at that site.)

IN THE HEART OF THE CITY THAT HAS NO HEART
(Words by Thos. S. Allen, music by Joseph M. Daly, 1913)

She wanted to roam, so she left the old home.
The old people's hearts were sore.
She longed for the sights and the bright city lights
Where hundreds had gone before.
She went to the heart of the city
And mingled with strangers there,
But nobody said, "You are being misled,"
For what did the stranger care?

CHORUS: In the heart of the city that has no heart,
That's where they meet, and that's where they part.
The current of vice had proved too strong,
So the poor little girlie just drifted along.
Nobody cared if she lived or died.
Nobody cared if she laughed or cried.
She's just lost a sister and nobody's missed her.
She's there in the city where there's no pity,
In the city that has no heart.

A year passes by. There's a tear in her eye,
And sorrow is on her brow.
Oh! What would she do if the old people knew?
She couldn't go back home now.
Her dear mother said when they parted,
"Remember your good old name."
Then her daddy said, "Rather we'd see you dead
Than bring us disgrace and shame." CHORUS

This song was sung by a black American trio called "The Haywood Trio." Their photograph appears on the 1913 sheet music (at American Memory, Daly Music Publishers, Boston).

Did they make any recordings? Any information?

(Not the current English trio of that name).

You can hear a recording of IN THE HEART OF THE CITY THAT HAS NO HEART performed by Henry Burr and Ada Jones in 1914 at The Cylinder Preservation and Digitization Project.
