School songbooks often have abbreviated or sanitized versions of songs - but they also often have tunes that we may be missing, which is one reason why I started this thread.
To find a song, use [CTRL-F] on your keyboard, and put in a pertinent word from the song title.

    In late 1956, Silver Burdett books for grades 1-2 became:
    1.1 and 1.2: I Like the Country.

    Among the Follett books, Music Round the Clock is for lower grades, the rest seem to be unspecified.

There's another thread on a play-party song called "Four White Horses," and Animaterra says she found it in a achool songbook. I wanted to post the tune, so I looked through lots of songbooks, but couldn't find the song. I have lots of school songbooks, but it's a hassle to look through them each time I want to find a song. If I post the index of each songbook here, the song should turn up in Mudcat search.
If you have songbook you'd like to index, be sure to put the title of the book and authors, series name, publication date and publisher, and grade level. Let's reserve this thread for school and children's songbooks only.

-Joe Offer-
One thing I forgot to mention - I'm assuming that the people who post these indexes have the books in their possession, and that they are able to post the songs they've index if requested. If you do NOT have ready access to the songbook you're indexing, be sure to note that. Thanks. -Joe Offer-

Do you mean, post the text of the table of contents or index, so we get a list of song titles? That is, if one has a scanner that grabs text.

Do you also want publisher info from the front of the book and the year of publication?

Joe, please give author and full title. Silver Burdett has been publishing and revising these books since the 1890s, different authors.

the Book 4 that you haven't listed-
Author- McConathy et al.
Title- The Music Hour, 4th Book (1937, etc.)

First Book etc.- Title and author depends on edition-
Author- Marsell et al.
Title- I Like the City, 1st Book (1956, etc.)
Author- Eleanor Smith
Title- A First book in Vocal Music (1901, etc.
and etc.
I thought of that, Q, but each book has a laundry-list of authors, and most stay the same even when the authors' names change. I'll think about it, and may try to get around to adding names later.

Joe, I sure wish I had this much time on my hands! I have several of the books you've listed, as well as other grade levels of some of the above editions, but it's going to be some time before I can post the indices (of course, now that I have your snail address...)

(I never did find the MacMillan book with Four White Horses, but I have since found it in 3 other books at school! I'll look for them tomorrow)

Well Joe - I thought I'd grab a couple of my old school song books and do a quicky, but - they have no Table of Contents and no usable index. Only a "by subjects" list, with multiple repeats. Also lots of "discussion" headings that look like songs in the list but aren't.

I do have one called New Music Horizons, Book 6 that is the 6th grade Kansas "official" music book, 1946 edition, from a recent garage sale outing. It seems to have some songs that aren't listed above, but it's going to take some serious sorting to figure out a list. It is another Silver-Burdett ©, but is printed by the Kansas State Printer.

A couple of others seem mostly to repeat parts of your lists.

Carl Sandburg's American Songbag has a tune for "Two White Horses." Could you tell if the play song maybe uses the same tune?

I haven't pulled the book, but my index indicates he has a "score" (my index key for "more than a single line melody") for this one.

My daughter, retired teacher, has told me of the fate of these books in this city (Some Scott-Burdetts were used,dates uncertain. The older school where she first taught had a basement filled with these and other old texts. In a general cleanup they were trucked to landfill (Before recycling here). I would guess that the same fate overtook these books elsewhere. Teaching with these books ended here about 1980.

The Follett and Silver Burdett books are really quite wonderful. Oftentimes, a song won't have more than one verse, but the books have broad collections of traditional songs. The illustrations are good, too. I have a mixed collection of other books, particularly the Birchard "Singing School" series. The Brichard index setup is a bit more difficult to scan, so they'll have to wait until next week.
Thanks to all who have contributed to this project. Keep 'em coming.

My Word compilation shows 2,073 song title entries so far. Not bad for a few hours.

The thing I find surprising is how few "multiples" there are. There are a few exceptions that each appear in 5 or 6 of the books, but not all that many. There are quite a few that are in two or three books, but even that amount of repetition is much lower than I would have expected, given the "family relationship" between the books.

With comments removed, book id once each, and one line per song title, I've got a 47 page TOC in Word. Of course that's at 12 pt type, so I can read it. I may have to cut back to 4 pt to save some disk space.

Book: The Juvenile Singing School
Author: Lowell Mason and G.J. Webb
Publisher: Boston: J.H. Wilkins, & R.B. Carter
Grade: no grade indicated
Date: 1839 [According to John Alfred Nietz, Old Textbooks (University of Pittsburgh Press, 1961, p. 347), this is the third earliest school songbook in the United States.]

From the index of first lines (tiles are in the parentheses; notes in square brackets are mine):

Across the lake (The Bugle Horn)
Awake! awake! the pearly dew drops (The morning horn)
Awake! awake! 'tis dawn
Awake ye, awake!
Away! away, we've a holiday (Holiday Song)
Away with pouting and with pining
Before all lands in east or west
Be sacred truth, my son, thy guide
Cheerily, cheerily sound the merry strain (All are here)
Children go, to and fro
Come and see the ripe fruit falling (Autumn)
Come away, come away (Swiss Boy)
Come, come, come (Summer song)
Come, sound the merry tabor! sound
Come, soft and lovely evening
Every fruit is mellow (Harvest song)
Flowers, wild-wood flowers
Friends, awake! (The morning call)
Glide along, our bonny boat (The bonny boat)
Go at moonlight's fairy hour (Forget me not)
God is near thee (Be of good cheer)
Hail! all hail! thou merry month of May
Haste thee, winter, haste away [tune: "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star"]
How sweet the sound (Bugle song)
How soft and lovely (May song)
If I've fulfilled my daily task aright (Evening song)
I know a fountain clear and bright
I know a kindly angel (The child's angel)
I love the little laughing rill (The rivulet)
In the thick and grassy wood (The Strawberry)
I saw at morning a floweret blue (The floweret)
Lo! the blithesome lark is soaring (The Lark)
Morn amid the mountains
Morning is breaking
Murmur gentle lyre (Night song)
Near a silvery fountain (My home)
Night is stealing (Evening twilight)
Night's gloomy shades are flying (Summer)
Not the little circle round us (The wide world)
Now nature smiles (Spring)
Now night is gone (Morning)
Now the sun is in the west (The Cuckoo)
Now the sun with burning glare (Summer)
Of late so brightly glowing (Lovley Rose)
Oh, happy as the day is long (A pure heart)
Oh, how brightly, how brightly (Swiss Boy)
Once, bright gpddess, thou wast smiling (To music)
On the stormy ocean
O say, busy bee [tune: "O Du Lieber Augustin (Did You Ever See A Lassie?)"]
Our youthful hearts for learning burn (Away to school)
Out in a beautiful field (The pear tree)
Over the mountain
See how calmly (Song of peace)
See our airy bubble (The soap bubble)
See, the day with rosy light
See the shining dew drops (God is ever good)
See the morning star so bright
See yonder rainbow (The Rainbow)
Shall school acquaintance be forget (Auld Lang Syne) [non-alcoholic words]
Shall we oppressed with sadness
Stars of heaven that gaze on me
Summer joys are o'er (Winter Song)
Sweet spring is nigh
Sweet Summer days are declining (Departure of Summer)
The eastern hills are glowing (The rising sun)
The flowers again are fresh and fair
The lovely moon hath risen (Evening Song)
The silvery moon
The sweet birds are winging
This world is all a mighty choir
Through woodlands wild (Song of the birds)
'Tis dawn, 'tis dawn, 'tis dawn (Morning, noon and night)
'Tis winter, winter far and wide
When descends the golden sun
When the dawn is faintly breaking (The Postillion)
When the first faint morning's ray (The herdsman's flute)
Wilt thou hear a song to charm thee (Song of the Bees)
Would you list to the lay of a mountain boy

Added data for Mason and Webb. Juvenile Singing School: 1st edition 1837, 2nd printing 1839-1840, 128 pp.
Two popular books by these authors were the "Boston (Mass.)Glee Book.... Glees, Madrigals and Rounds...," 264 pp., 1838, Wilkins, Carter and Palmer Co., and "The Odeon," a collection of secular melodies, 304 pp., 1837, Wilkins and Carter. Also a number of books of church music, hymns, etc.

Q, thanks for the data. The Juvenile Singing School was first published in 1837, but the page number is 129. I'll post the contents of other songbooks by Mason later: Lowell Mason, The Boston School Song Book (Boston: Wilkins, Carter and Co., [1840], 1844); Lowell Mason & George James Webb, eds., The Song-Book of the School-Room (Boston: Wilkins, Carter, & Co., [1847], 1850); Lowell Mason, The Song-Garden; A Series of School Music Books, Progressvely Arranged, Bks 1-2 (New York/Boston: Mason Brothers, 1864); Lowell Mason, Mason's Normal Singer (New York: Mason Brothers, 1856). The Odeon, I think, isn't a school songbook ("designed for adult singing schools, and for social music parties").

Masato, what were the first two US school songbooks?

Also curious about the name, "The Lake High School Song Book." Whence 'Lake'? The editor, White, Director of Music, Public Schools, Des Moines, IA, didn't explain it in his Preface.

Q, according to John Alfred Nietz's Old Textbooks [online at Historic Pittsburgh] (University of Pittsburgh Press, 1961, pp. 345-46), the first two textbooks were Augustus Peabody's The Child's Song Book, published in Boston in 1830; and Lowell Mason and E. Ives, Jr.'s The Juvenile Lyre, submitted for copyright in 1831, but published in 1832. Incidentally, "Mary Had a Little Lamb" was first set to music (but not the presently know melody) in The Juvenile Lyre (James J. Fuld, The Book of World-Famous Music, 5th ed., 2000, p. 355).

Ho, the Boating
How beautiful at evening hour
Hurrah for a splash
Hurrah for the summer
Hush, my darlings
I do not like a little girl
I know a little restless brook
I like to see a little girl
I love at early morning
I love it, the laugh of a child
I love the little sparkling rill
I'm very glad the spring has come
I must not speak a naughty word
In all the green world
In the Boat
In the fir-tree I would be
In the thick and grassy wood
In your play be very careful
I remember a lasson
I saw a little yellow bird
Let us with a cheerful mind
Let your steps be blithe and gay
Lightly Row
Likes and Dislikes
Listen to the carolled ditty
List ye to the olden clock
Little bird with eager wing
Little laughing river
Lively, welcome May

Oh, the joyful news
Oh, what art thou doing there?

Our Georgie

Roses in Bloom
Round and round it goes

To the Robin
Trip away
Trip it lightly
Trust in God
Two Robin Redbreasts in their nest
Up, up and away
Vacation Song
Wake and cheer thee
Water, Oil, and Pearl-Ash
We birds are happy all day long
We'll love each other truly
What does little birdie say
What I do like
What News
When the southern breezes play
Where the sickles are gleaming
Which way does the wind blow
Who on the wall is seated
Why should we be pining
Wild-Wood Flowers
Winds of Summer
Winter, Adieu
Work away

After study we shall find
Be to others kind and true
Cold the wind is blowing
Come, come, come
First be sure you're doing right
Haste ye to labor
He who would live in peace
Higher still and higher
In the Field
Let us endeavor
Loving hearts make loving friends
Loving souls
Merrily, merrily
Morning bells I love to hear
Oh, what delight
Over mountain grove and fountain
Pity the Idle
Pluck ye Roses
Speak distinctly
Sweet it is to wander
The Sky-lark
The spring has come
The wind is loudly roaring
Whenever any one does wrong
When the Doctors disagree
When we read well
Whether you whisper low
While we walk in Wisdom's way
Why should we sigh for wealth
Who'll buy my posies
Who sows good seed

      SONGS [titles & first lines]
Absent friends
Adieu to winter
A fleecy cloud
After school
Ah! could I but greater be
A home shelter
All hail to thee, fair freedom's land
All the birds are here [tune: "Alle Vogel sind schon da"]
Along by the river
Alpine hunter's song
Alpine or mountain song
At sunset, when nature is seeking repose
Awake, and let your songs resound
Awake, weary sleeper
Away, away, and hail the day
Away with needless sorrow
Battle summons
Be lively, boys, be lively
Be merry now
Be merry and sing
Bim, bome, ring merry bells
Both young and old
Busily, busily, humming
But yesterday the garden
Calvary song
Changing seasons
Cherries ripe
Christmas carol No. 1
Christmas carol No. 2
Clatter, clatter
Come away, merry May!
Come, haste away
Come join our festive
Come, let us be merry
Come, roam in the woodlands
Come to the mountain
Come wreathe your brow
Death song of the Indian
Doing nothing
Down and up
Evening bell
Farewell ye dear companion
Flowing free
For many days
Friends and old companions
Friends, awake
Galloping on
Gather roses while they bloom
Glide along, our bonny boat
God bless our native land [tune: "My Country, 'Tis of Thee"]
Green are the hills
Greet the reapers
Hail to all we love
Hark! for the trumpet
Hark! from woodlands
Hark, hark the sweet, sweet chiming
Hark! the Alpine hunter's horn
Hark! the bell is ringing
Haying song
High he soars
Hold fast to truth [tune: "Winter, adieu" (German)]
Ho! my steed
How swift we go
How wearily the sentry lone
How we love these hours
I can't
I love at early morning
I'm a rover
I'm a shepherd of the valley
In faithful bonds
In flakes of a feathery white
In the silvery moonlight
In triumph advancing
I saw the lovely spring
It is not good to be for ever working
I went to the hillock
I will
"Lads," said I
Lads, we're going
Lady gay, come away
Light and shade
Light beyond the clouds
Lips may sing
Little brook
Little things
Looks, words, and deeds
Lo! the sun looks o'er the hills
Marching song
March on, our way along
Mariner spread thy sail
Memory of youthful days [tune: "Marmotte" by Beethoven]
Merrily join the holiday song
Merry May
Morning Song
Morning light
My brother caught a starling
My comrade true
My country, 'tis of thee
My home is in the meadows
My life is a pleasure
Near the margin
Near to my dwelling
New Year's song
Night winds are mournfully
No fortune has assigned me
No, no, no
Not wealth alone
Now foot in the stirrup
Now in tones full of joy
Now is the sunny time
O boatman, chant
O'er rocks and hills
O'er the foaming billows
O'er the waters gliding
Oh! the blacksmith's fine sturdy fellow
Oh, this earth of ours
On the lawn a tall tree
On Alpine heights
On the ocean
Open wide the doors
Our bonny boat
Our old clock
Oh tell me gentle river
Our native land
Pleasant on an autumn day
Pleasant smiles and glances
Rain song
Return of the soldiers
Ring, merry, merry bells
Round and round
Round the tree
See yonder rainbow
Sing we now of home
Softly blow the vernal breezes
Spring song
Summer's going
Star-eyed beauty
Stars that gem the trackless sky
Tap, tap, tap
Tell me, tell me
Tell not of bowers
The air is chill
The advantage of being small
The Alpine hunter's song
The answer of the flowers
The battle strife is ended
The blacksmith [tune: "Non piu andrai farfallone amoroso" by Mozart]
The child and the cloud
The cobbler
The death of the Cherokee
The disobedient chickens
The eagle
The emigrant's song
The ground was all covered
The hen to herself said
The herdsman's song
The little brook
The mill wheel
The oak
The poor at Christmas
The rabbit
The rain must flow
The rider's song
The sentry
The silently falling snow
The sleigh ride
The snowbird
The snow doth melt
The soldier's grave
The starling
The sun sets at night
The swing
The token
The traveler
The violet
The wander-staff
The water lily
The woods
There'll be sunshine
There's room enough
Tho' veiled in thick
Tick! tock! old clock
To school, my boy
To the woods
Tramp, tramping on
Tramping through the wood
True happiness
Truth, hope, and love
We are sons of hardy toil
We love the heroes
We march along
We wander thro' full many a land
When beneath the old tree
When first appears the light
When parting from our childhood's home
When the green leaves
When the heart-bells wearily
When the wintry winds
Who is a brave man
Will you come to the wood
Winter weather
With heart and voice
Within a garden
Work for the night is coming [tune: Work Song (hymn)]

All the day
All work and no play
At summer morn
Beauty's but an idle boast
Begin with manly courage
Beggar boy's round
Be to others ever faithful
Better poor a whole life
Birds are singing
Boat round: Glide along
Bow, wow, wow
Bright, how bright
Brightly glancing
Bring the tea tray
Call John
Cheerfulness cometh
Cold the wind
Come and join
Come and see the ripe fruit
Come and sing
Come away
Come away with rising
Ome, come, come
Come follow
Come, joyous hearts
Come quickly
Come to the top
Content gives peace
Cuckoo! hear ye the song
Daylight is fading
Do, Re, Mi
Early to bed
Far beyond all studied
From our duty shall be
Fruitful fields are waving
Gentle tones
Give me songs
Glide along
Great Tom is cast
Hail to the day
Happy to meet
Hark! the bell is ringing
Hark! the voice
Hast thou a sorrow
He who does not love a song
Higher yet
Horse to trot
Hours in earnest study
How sweert the birds
I am tired of this solfaing
I could if I would
If a body [words, not the melody, from "Comin' through the rye"]
I'll begin
If the country
Jack, boy, ho, boy
Lads and lassies
Laurel wreathes
Let our grateful songs
Let our voices
Let us, dear brothers
Let your pleasures
Life's a ship
Lo, the waving grain
Love your neighbor
Marching onward
May the care of Heaven
My little dog
No, no, no
Not too great
Now be firm
Now in solemn tones
Now sing aloud
Now the sun sinks
Now to all
Now we dash way
Now we will sing
Oh! how bright
O please to give a penny
Order is heaven's first law
Over mountain
Packing up
Past ten o'clock
Pluck ye roses
Rich is the treasure
Round and round
See the sunlight
Shut the door
Since I chanced to see you
Sing it over
Sing of mountains
Sing of our country
Sing we now in
Slowly moving
Soap and water
Softly fades
Spring is coming
Step softly
Summer days
Sunbeams on the mountains
Sweetly now at evening
take they resting
That well we prize
The beggar boy
The bell is cast
The cuckoo
The merry month begins
The mill wheel
The noblest hero
The prisoner's escape
The trumpet signal
Thirty days are in
Thomas and Andrew
Thou poor bird
Too much haste
Too warm the day
To the praise of truth
Troubles never last
Trouble unbidden
Unto others always do
Up and down
Up in the morning
Wake, now wake [tune: "Three Blind Mice"]
Warble for us
Water falling
Watchman's call
Welcome spring
We oft do say
We waited for an omnibus
What cannot be cured
When anger comes
When a weary task
When the sun sets clear
When the winds do blow
Whither through the verdant meadow
Who contended is
Who sows good seed
Why complain
Why will you go
Will you go
With all thy soul
With cheerful hands
With early morning light
With gentle voice

Around the throne
Awake, my soul
Behold the morning sun
Be thou, O God, exalted
Blest are the pure
Blest are the sons
Blest be thou, O God
By cool Siloam's
Calm me, my God
Cast they burden
Come, said Jesus' sacred voice
Come seek the Lord
Come sound his praise
Continually, continually
Father, take my hand
From all that dwell
Gently, Lord, oh, gently
Give thanks to God
Give to the winds
God bless our native land [tune: "My Country, 'Tis of Thee"]
God is Love
Happy the home
Heavenly Father, grant
Heavenly Shepherd, guide me [tune: Sicilian Mariners]
He who hath trusted
How gentle God's
How precious is the book
How shall the young
In God the Lord
I thank the goodness
Kingdoms and thrones
Let children hear
Lift up to God
Like the eagle
Long as I live
Lord, in the morning
My God, my Father
My soul inspired
Nearer to thee [= "Nearer, my God, to Thee"]
No change of time
O God, our Father
Oh, bless the Lord
Oh, cease, my wandering
Oh, happy is the man
Oh, that the Lord
O Lord, our fathers oft
O Thou in whom
Our Father God
Praise, oh praise
Praise to Thee
Praise the Lord
Remember thy Creator
Sister, thou wast mild
Sweet is the memory
Swell the anthem
The Lord is King
The Lord is my shepherd
The Lord is rich
The Lord is wise
The pity of the Lord
There is a city
There is a stream
Thou great Instructor
Thou King of Earth
Through all the changing
Thy name, Almighty
To thy pleasures
When the glorious day
While Thee I seek
With humble heart
Worship, honor, glory
Ye nations round the earth [tune: Old Hudredth]

God be merciful
I will lift up mine eyes
Make a joyful noise
Oh, give thanks unto
The Lord is my shepherd
The Lord's Prayer

Howdy JOE....grand idea....thank you.

What is the pro-toe-call....for this thread?

Do you want the Publisher, Date and Table of Contents of published text-books only?

Do you want the owners of said texts to scour the DT for deviations....and post only those?

Should there be splits for texts from Utah (sometimes VERY skewed)or for publisher's (Prentice-Hall, Halcourt-Brace, LittleJohn, McGuffy?)

Perhaps, a "scanned page" location for texts out of copyright?

Next to the original Dick Greenfield's Digital Tradition....this could become the hottest new areas of the MudCat.


    I thought you'd like this one, Gargoyle. The idea is to have a table of contents for all school songbooks we can locate. Then if somebody searches for a song and we don't already have it posted, maybe the search will lead to the person who owns the songbook and can supply the song.
    Entries should include songbook title, publication date, name of authors, name of the songbook series, grade level, and the entire table of contents. This thread is getting long, so I may move some of the contents to other threads - but post them here and let me do the moving.

Joe - I have a few nineteenth and early twentieth century books published for Singing Schools, church schools, glee clubs, social gatherings, etc. Some of these are shape-note mainly church music but some of the later ones have secular music, folk songs and children's songs. Is there or could there be a separate Permathread for these? - Charles
    Hi, Charles - go ahead and post them here. If the thread gets too big, I'll do another reorganization, like I did with the Follett and Silver Burdett books. If books are by Follett or Silver Burdett, go ahead and post them in the appropriate thread. Otherwise, post 'em here.
    I'm amazed at the books in our collection, Charles. I've found lots from the 1950's and 60's, but yours are so much older. Thanks to everyone for all the help.

A Google search just brought me more information than I'll ever absorb about John Rippon (1751-1836), Jeremy Belknap (1744-1798), Timothy Dwight (1752-1817) and the Williams College collection. I'll abandon hymns for now and go back to school songbooks. - Charles

Note on "Folk-Songs and Other Songs For Children," Jane Byrd Radcliffe-Whitehead, 1903.
"In America, if we except the negro and Indian melodies, some college songs, and a few others, we can hardly be said to have as yet any folk songs."
We know this to be wrong, but in 1903, collecting by Sharpe and others was only beginning. The rich store of folk songs found by Sharp, Brown, Randolph, Cox, Lomax and many others was not yet unearthed.

Although unaware of American folk songs, Jane Byrd Radcliffe-Whitehead is known for her research on carols; she brought many of them to public attention for the first time.

Nine Red Horsemen is in one of the lists of titles at this site, but I see no lyrics.

Here is what I recall:

I saw nine red horsemen
riding over the plain;
They all road as one man,
though I knew there were nine


Ho-hilo-hilo-hilo-ho, ho-hilo-hilo-hilo-ho, ho-hilo-hilo-hilo-ho, ho-hilo-hilo-hilo-ho (i.e., 4 times)

Two series of songbooks not yet listed are:

"The American Singer," Books 1-6, 1946, John W. Beattie, Josephine Wolverton, Grace V. Wilson and Howard Hinga, American Book Company.

This series was also printed and bound in Canada as "The Canadian Singer," Books 1-6. 1947, W. J. Gage & Co., Ltd., Toronto, without change in content.

"The New Highroad of Song," Books 1-6, and also 1-2-3 in one volume, no date but 1950s, G. Roy Fenwick, Hollis Dann and Robert Foresman, printed in Canada by W. J. Gage and Company Limited, Toronto, Canada.
Only one Canadian folksong and "God Save the Queen," otherwise similar to American school songbooks and perhaps a Canadian printing of an American Series with only the title changed.

Subject: Songs of the Ages
From: Nigel Parsons
Date: 06 Jan 05 - 01:21 PM

Another 'School Song Book' which I remember from my schooldays. I have recently bought a copy from my local Oxfam shop. The songs are all set to at least a melody, in some cases four-part harmony is used. The contents pages reproduced here, provide the composer, or rough date of composition. The book has been arranged in (very) approximate age order.

Hi, Azizi - I think we don't have any of those books indexed, so please scan and post the indexes if you're able to. I'd really like to see what you have in that 1936 edition of Sing Together. the earliest one I've seen is 1973.
You can post them in this thread, and I'll see they get moved to the appropriate thread. Sooner or later, we need to have a thread for Ginn and Company. Please make sure you index no more than one book in a single message.

Well-I wasn't finished putting in the information about the Green Book when my computer pressed the submit button itself...
Is this part of the wierd stuff going on with the computers?? Maybe the Roman Numerals took exception to the fact that I wouldn't take the time to figure out thir conversions to 'real' numbers-because I feared I might make a mistake...oh well...

Anyway the company for the Green Book is the same as the Brown book and the copyright dates [ahem] are: MCMXXIII and MCMXXX; and renewed copyright MCMLI

I thought that I had more Silver Burdett books, but I can't put my hands on them at this time...I'll keep looking...

Though someone may have already posted these indexes, just in case they haven't been psoted yet, I'll commit to posting each book's content page ASAP starting now with "Sing Together", Girls Scouts, Inc. 1936

Of course, when I was less than half way through this list, it occured to me that before taking the time to write it, it would have been smarter for me to ask if this list had already been posted...

So I will ask that about the other song books that I listed in my previous post. Are the content pages of these books already listed here?

If not, I'll post them one at a time. I will also respond to any request for the text of a particular song from these time & energy permits.

Thanks, Joe!

I sent in that list before I read your post!

I was hoping that somebody would have saved me from doing this work but I'll get with it. And I'll make sure not to put the content pages of more than one book on the same post.

By the way, I got each of these books for $2.OO or less from Library sales of withdrawn books or from second hand stores... so it's 'pays' to be alert to those opportunities to find some great folk music resources...

Joe, would you please post the link for the thread for the Girl Scout song books? I'm interested in comparing the contents.

    Uh,'re gonna make me work, Azizi. I've been meaning to have a thread for indexing Scout songbooks, but I haven't done it yet. You're welcome to start one, or you can waot for me to get a "round tuit."
    We do have a Girl Scout Favorites thread group.

Or enter silver-burdett into the Lyrics and Knowledge Search Box and links will come up. Book 3 has not been posted; only 5 and 6

Subject: 5th grade music textbook
From: GUEST,Laura
Date: 14 Sep 05 - 08:34 AM

Hope this question is in the right place (please move or delete if not!)

I'm looking for the name of my elementary school music textbook(s). The songs that I remember are The Ballad of the Bluenose, Happiness Is, I Can Sing a Rainbow, and "As I was walking the streets of Laredo..." I don't know whether they're in one book or two, since I'm not positive that we sang them all in the same year. The books were used in Southeast Missouri, 1978-1981 (but were quite possibly older copyrights).

I've searched everything I can find here and found references to a couple of the songs (though I don't recall the book calling the last song "The Cowboy's Lament"), but none of them are together or have any other songs that ring a bell. Searching at UTK has given me nothing, so far. Any suggestions of other places to look or better techniques would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Hi, Laura - As you can see, we have lots of songbooks indexed in this thread and in the other threads crosslinked above, but I can't find "Bluenose" or "Sing a Rainbow" in any of them, or in the books I haven't got around to indexing.
I guess we've concentrated on songbooks published before 1970, which may be why we don't show it.
Don't give up, though - check this thread every once in a while, and wee if somebody comes up with an answer for you.

Joe: "check this thread every once in a while, and wee if somebody comes up with an answer for you.

Are you really suggesting he'll wet himself if he gets an answer?

Or does it mean something different over there?

    Yes, it means that Joe is aging, and his once-remarkable typing skills are fading....

    You'll note that this request is from a person who was in the fifth grade in the 1980's. Joe Offer was in the fifth grade in the 1950's.

Subject: Index: The American Song Book
From: Nigel Parsons
Date: 05 May 07 - 05:06 PM

I've just picked up another song book at my local Oxfam shop They had 3 copies, (I nabbed them all!!).

The American Song Book
(ed) John Horton
(pub)E.J.Arnold & Son Ltd Leeds.
No date given, no price pre-printed to give an idea of age. Latest dated reference in it is to "The Epic of America 1940"

Contents (with melody/accompaniment) are:
1, The Barnyard Song (I Had a Cat)
2, The Swapping song (When I was a little Boy)
3, Turn the Glasses Over
4, Turkey in the Straw
5, Swing Low, Sweet Chariot
6, I Got a Robe
7, Roll the Cotton Down
8, The Plains of Mexico
9, We're All Bound to Go
10, The Little Old Sod Shanty
11, The Shantyman's Life
12, Wait for the Wagon
13, Git Along, Little Dogies
14, The Lone Star Trail
15 The Banks of Sacramento
16, Poor Paddy Works on the Railway
17, She'll be Comin' Round the Mountain
18, Yankee Doodle
19 My Old Kentucky Home
20, Oh! Susanna
21, The Star-Spangled Banner
22, John Brown's Body
23, Battle Hymn of the Republic
24, When Johnny Comes Marching Home
25, Tramp! Tramp! Tramp! The Boys are Marching
26, Dixie
27, America.

Some explanation is given with each song, e.g.
10 The Little Old Sod Shanty:
"Shanty" here has nothing to do with sailors' songs. It is about the early pioneers who struck westwards in search of new lands to settle in, and came to the treeless prairies where they could no longer build themselves the log cabins they had been used to in the mountains and forest country. So they dug hollows or trenches in the ground, piled sods of turf around like bricks, and made a roof of turf held up by cross poles. This was a "sod shanty""

Nigel mentioned Curwen's Folk Songs of Many Lands (1906) above. It's now available at Google Books.

I've recently posted a few sets of words from this book (mainly ones I remember from school) in separate threads:
Gypsy Dance
Fishermen's Evening Song
The Old Minstrel

These also include the tunes in ABC format (subject to correction!)

Subject: Index: Songs of Beta Theta Pi
From: JohnInKansas
Date: 29 Jul 11 - 02:07 AM

Probably really stretching the definition of "school book" but in case someone is interested I have a pdf of "Songs of Beta Theta Pi" ©1942. I picked it up as two books, labelled 1954 and 1955, but they're the same book with an "annual cover." I was never a frat rat, and IMO these songs are incredibly boring and mostly pretty maudlin, but I needed to get it out of the bookcase to get some space and it only took a few hours to scan.

The original scan, at "publishing quality" is 289,503 KB and my email won't swallow it to send to anybody. A reduction to "web quality" brought it down to 37,718 KB but I haven't tried it to see if it's "sendable." The "web sized" book should print okay at about 150 dpi. I'm not sure whether my pdf mangler will let me go any smaller.

I also have an individual file of each of the 101 songs, plus a TOC and an Index, but even those (web quality) are big enough that they'd have to sent in individual emails to gain much on the bandwidth barrier. One at 2 MB, the others smaller but average probably near 1 MB.

The Table of Contents only shows 4 songs, so I guess they just weren't much on keeping up to date.

The Index is a little better:

Most songs are 4-part scores. Perhaps a half dozen of the titles are text only.

If anybody's really interested, PM an email addy and I can try to send any song you want. I could even try to send the smaller version of the whole book, although I think succes odds are pretty marginal.

(I really can't see why anybody would want any of them: as I said - I wasn't a fratboy so maybe I just don't understand.)

(I have no idea what schools BTP was ever at. Maybe somebody feels like looking them up.)

Subject: Index: Songs of the Campus
From: JohnInKansas
Date: 10 Jun 12 - 12:15 AM

Another stretch on the "school songbooks" category, but there are too many "Index" threads here for me to pick a better one for "College Songs" so I'll put my latest find here. Feel free to move it to a more appropriate place if it works better in another thread.

Not particularly old or even "classic" but with a snatch-sampling of what might have been sung at US campuses ca the 1930s (?). A few songs for which only texts are given are generally adjacent to scored pieces with a "tune of" reference. Since quite a few songs of the kind are to the tune of others of the same ilk, the music for "just like" tunes may be as useful as the "words" associated with a particular U., for those with an interest in such stuff. Scores generally 4-part, suitable for vocal harmony but probably sufficient for piano accompaniments for the average choir accompanist.

Several of the songs have notations of "by permission of ..." but don't clearly indicate whether the source giving permission was an author, composer, or © holder. Clues more than info for sourcing(?).

A personal "curiosity" is one song "from my own alma mudder" that was claimed to be "lost" and could NOT BE FOUND at the Institute ca 1958. Fragments were found in a couple of "frat books" but no complete verse(s). I had not noticed that it's in this book until I spotted it during scanning for my digital archive.

As usual, my "archive PDF" is too large for easy transmittal, at about 137 MB. The whole book could probably be made small enough for email, if someone wanted it enough to put up with my whining, or individual songs could be fairly easily extracted to make printable (PDF or JPG perhaps) copies of a few pages if there's a need.

From: JohnInKansas
Date: 10 Jun 12 - 05:23 AM

No explanation in this one as to age/grade suggestions, although it has the appearance of a "teaching" book for beginning (lower elementary grades) children. Full "piano" score for most songs (some chords as notated look to me like they could require 7 or 8 fingers on one hand(?), but I assume a good pianist would make them look easy).

Subject: RE: School Songbook Index PermaThread
From: GUEST,L W Yoder
Date: 28 Jan 16 - 02:28 PM

In music class in the Pennsylvania school I attended in the mid-1950s we used two hard-bound songbooks of a series.
One was silver and the other was gold. I'd say they were about 7 inches by 9 inches and maybe 3/4 inch thick.
One of them contained a song with the following words (as best I recall them):
    "All day across the blue the caravans go by,
    I see them come, I see them go, their clouds are in the sky,
    Sometimes a camel train goes bound for far Cathay,
    Sometimes a fleet of winged ships sails on for some blue bay,
    Oh I have seen Crusaders ride in suits of silver spun,
    And watched their banners floating high, their lances catch the sun,
    One day twas just at sunset I saw where heaven waits,
    For I saw seven angels pass through tall golden gate."
Can anyone help me identify these songbooks and find the correct words and music for this song?

Hi, L.W.-
There were several series of U.S. school songbooks published in the mid-1950s that had colorful illustrations inside and on the cover. I'm thinking your books might have been from the Silver Burdett Music Hour series that was published in the 1930s, but probably still in use in the 1950s. I have only two books from this series, and both have an almost-metallic finish on the cover, with an embossed title. Music of Many Lands and Peoples has a silver cover. Music Highways and Byways has a cover that I'd call bronze, but one might call it gold.
Authors were McConathy, Beattie, and Morgan.

Please see this thread (click) for discussion of the song.

I'm not precisely sure on the etiquette on these forums. I'm interested in something Nigel Parsons posted above. I'm a music teacher in Kansas in the US, and I've been working on researching the song "Tongo", which might be Polynesian, but folks seem to have trouble finding an authentic source for it.

It's mentioned as being in the Spring 1994 "Time and Tune" Vox Box, and I was wondering if there is any bibliographical information listed for it in that issue? Would it be possible to see a scan of it?

Thank you!

Hi, Guest.
Sorry to not have responded at the time, but I don't keep track of this thread.
There is no biographical info on the Time & Tune page for this song, but there may be in the 'Teacher's Notes' which I have somewhere.
The page with the song is easy to supply as a scan, as I have digitised the whole of my Time & Tune collection.
If you are checking back, just leave a similar message on the page specific to Time & Tune and I will normally respond within a couple of days. (I keep an eye out for new entries there!)

(with Companion Melodies)




It appears that these songs are listed (initially) by the 'original' song title, and then by any translation. So a Welsh song translated to English will start with the Welsh title, and vice versa.
To what extent they would classify as 'folk' I leave it to the reader to decide.
I will probably start a new thread just on this book, and including individual songs/tunes where I find they are not already in Mudcat (or where there are significant (in my view) differences.)

The title says 'Part I' and it appears (from the alphabetical listing) that there would also have been a 'Part II'.

Before I (gradually) get around to it, if anyone wants a particular song from this, let me know.
