Just discovered this digital archive of popular american sheet music.

The UCLA Music Library's Archive of Popular American Music is a research collection covering the history of popular music in the United States from 1790 to the present. The collection, fully accessible at the item level through the UCLA Library Orion2 catalog, is one of the largest in the country, numbering almost 450,000 pieces of sheet music, anthologies, and arrangements for band and orchestra.

Very easy to search. I have already placed it in the links section of the Mudcat.

A couple of points to clarify:

(1) Only sheet music whose copyright has expired can be viewed online. That means (I think) 1923 or earlier.

(2) I found it a little tricky to view the sheet music. When you click the link that says "View Sheet Music," it tries to download a file, and the file always has the same name ("librarian") regardless of which song you are downloading. There is no filename extension, which means your computer won't automatically know which program to use to open the file. These methods should work:

(a) When "File Download" window opens and asks you "Would you like to open the file or save it to your computer?" click "Save". When the "Save As" window opens, select an appropriate folder and give the file an appropriate name with the extension ".pdf". When it's finished downloading, click "Open Folder", then double-click the file you just saved. Adobe Acrobat Reader should launch (assuming you have it installed on your computer). Remember that if you don't want to keep the file indefinitely, you will have to delete it.

(b) Alternatively, click "Open". Then when the "Open With" screen comes up, click on the icon for Adobe Acrobat Reader "AcroRd32" (assuming you have it installed on your computer).

Having said that, it's a good resource. And I found it easy to download a complete list of the songs they have. I figure it would be a good thing to post the list here so that anyone who searches the Forum for one of these songs will find this list and know where to find the sheet music:

Husbands and wives
I ain't givin' nothin' away
I ain't gonna be nobody's fool
I ain't got enough for to pass around (so I guess I'll keep it all for myself)
I am a detective
I am wearing a mask of gladness
I call her sugar, she's so sweet
I can't do this and I can't do that
I can't forget your eyes
I certainly must be in love
I cried for you
I cried for you. Now it's your turn to cry over me
I did not intend to
I don't care about anything any more
I don't want nobody but you
I found a four leaf clover
I found a rose in the devil's garden
I found a wonderful friend
I found the sweetest rose that grows in Dixieland
I gave you up just before you threw me down
I got another lovin' mamma. Callin' me daddy now
I got it, you'll get it (just the same as me)
I guess I'm more like Mother than like Father
I had someone else before I had you (and I'll have someone after you're gone)
I hear you calling me
I know somebody who's crazy about you
I know what it means to be lonesome (I'm lonesome, so lonesome for you)
I left a wild, wild woman in france
I like it
I like London
I like to linger in the lingerie
I lost my heart to you
I love a musical comedy show
I love her - she loves me
I love my movie picture man
I love that
I love the name of Mary
I love the State of New Jersey
I love to fox-trot
I love to go swimmin' with wimmen
I love you all the more
I love you all the while
I love you because you're you
I love you Honolulu
I love you in the same old way (Darling Sue)
I love you just the same sweet Adeline
I love you truly
I met her at the ball
I might be your 'once-in-a-while'
I miss you all the while
I never had a pal like you
I never had the blues (until I left old Dixie-land)
I never knew
I never knew (I could love anybody like I'm loving you)
I never knew there was sunshine (until I met you)
I never met before a girl like you
I never miss
I never realized
I see your face
I spend my nights at the Knights of Columbus
I spoiled you
I think it must be love
I think of you by day. I dream of you by night
I thought I'd die
I used to love you but it's all over now
I want a doll
I want a lonely Romeo
I want a man for every day in the week (So I won't get those Sunday blues)
I want my mammy
I want the twilight and you
I want to be somebody's baby
I want to go where the cotton blossoms grow
I want to see - I want to be in old New Hampshire
I want to see my Ida Hoe in Idaho
I want to spread a little sunshine
I want to take your hand again and go where the daisies grow
I want you all of the time
I was more than lucky when I found you
I wasn't scared, but I just thought that I had better go
I wish the band would play
I wish there was a wireless to heaven
I wish you'd stay out of my dreams
I won't say I will but I won't say I won't
I wonder how the old folks are at home
I wonder if dreams come true
I wonder if there's a silver lining (shining in the clouds for me)
I wonder if you still care for me
I wonder if you will be home
I wonder who (has taken my place with you)
I wonder why I love you
I'd climb the highest mountain (if I knew I'd find you)
I'd climb the highest mountain if I knew I'd find you
I'd like to have a little girl like you
I'd like to know why I fell in love with you
I'd love to be a monkey in the zoo
I'd love to build a love nest for you
I'd rather see a minstrel show
I'd still believe in you
I'll always be lonely for you
I'll always be waiting for you
I'll be back home in Indiana. In the morning
I'll be glad to get back to my home town
I'll be in my Dixie home again to-morrow
I'll be there
I'll be true to you
I'll be with you in apple blossom time
I'll be with you when the clouds roll by
I'll be with you when the roses bloom again
I'll build a stairway to paradise
I'll dance my way right back to dixieland
I'll do what the rest do
I'll forget you
I'll give them back to you
I'll keep a warm spot in my heart for you
I'll keep on loving you
I'll miss you, old Ireland. God bless you, good-bye
I'll say so
I'll take you home again, Kathleen
I'm a cake eating man
I'm a human pousse cafe
I'm a jay hawk
I'm always stuttering
I'm an Indian
I'm coming back to say good bye
I'm coming back to you my Texas
I'm drifting back to dreamland
I'm forever thinking of you (wearing my heart away)
I'm glad I can make you cry
I'm goin' out if Lizzie comes in
I'm goin' South
I'm goin' to break that Mason-Dixon Line (until I get to that girl of mine)
I'm going back to California that's where I belong
I'm gonna get you
I'm in love
I'm just a little blue (for you)
I'm just like a wheel that is turning by the old mill stream
I'm like a ship without a sail
I'm lonesome for someone like mother
I'm looking all around for a vampire
I'm looking for a bluebird (to chase my blues away)
I'm losing my heart to someone
I'm not to blame
I'm now a millionaire
I'm on my way to Dublin Bay
I'm on the water wagon now
I'm only a pilgrim
I'm sitting on top of the world (just rolling along-just rolling along)
I'm so ambitious
I'm so lonesome
I'm so tired of dreaming (Dixie Lee)
I'm sorry
I'm the ghost of that good man John Barleycorn
I'm the good man that was so hard to find
I'm the guy who guards the harem (and my heart's in my work)
I'm through (shedding tears over you)
I'm trying
I'm waiting for ships that never come in
I'm worried over you
I've been decorated
I've danced to beat the band
I've got the blues for my Kentucky home
I've got the mumps
I've got the red white and blues
I've got the rumatiz
I've got the shimmee blues
I've got the sweet Hawaiian moonlight blues
I've got the Yes! We have no banana blues
I've had 57 varieties of sweethearts
I've lost my heart to the meanest gal in town
I've made up my mind to mind a maid made up like you
I've never loved another girl like I love you
I've shaken ev'rything I've got and now I'll shake you
I've waited so long
I, and myself, and me
Ida! Sweet as apple cider
Idol of them all
If a bee won't behave in a bee-hive
If all my dreams were made of gold I'd buy the world for you
If I had my choice of dreams
If I had my way, pretty baby
If I only had a home sweet home
If I only had a sweetheart just like you
If I should lose you
If I was what I ain't instead of what I is
If love were all
If our lives could be lived again
If shamrocks grew along the Swanee shore
If winter comes
If you care
If you don't believe I love you (look what a fool I've been)
If you were only here
If you would care for a lonely heart
If you're only fooling 'round me (why don't you put me wise?)

It's a wonderful world after all
It's always Pa or Ma
It's getting dark on old Broadway
It's nice to get up in the mornin'. But it's nicer to lie in bed
It's nice to get up in the mornin'. But it's nicer to lie in bed
It's only a step from Killarney to heaven
It's the only one for me
It's your lovely disposition

You can have him, I don't want him, didn't love him anyhow blues
You cannot make your shimmy shake on tea
You don't need the wine to have a wonderful time while they still make those beautiful girls
You for me
You know and I know
You need someone, someone needs you
You never can tell
You planted a rose in the garden of love
You remind me of my mother
You started something
You tell her - I stutter
You told me to go
You'd be surprised
You'll feel better then
You'll see the day
You're my heart's desire; I love you, Nellie Dean
You're the only girl that made me cry
You've got to see Mamma ev'ry night (or you can't see Mamma at all)
Your second wife
Your voice I hear
Yours for me and mine for you

I grew up haering my father play guitar and sing "Stay in your own backyard". He was an early radio country music pioneer, in Southwestern, Va, where I live. He was a marvelously multi-talented musician, and singer. He performed from late 1920's-to mid-50's. Sadly, he passed away in 2001, after a battle with many, debilitating strokes. I always loved this song, for its somewhat mounful melody and sweet words. While, some might would take offense at some of the words(coon, pickaninny), I don't see them as meant to degrade. BUT there are many more words to the song, than I have seen here. I am trying to write them all down, as I remember them, in case anyone is interested..I will post them...when I am thru...Nomra

Yes, a great site. When I clicked 'View file' it appeared straight away. I clicked on the Save icon and it appeared with the pdf extension so I just saved it. It opened no bother in Acrobat when I later double clicked it. One only has to rename it to save another as Jim Dixon rightly pointed out it was saved as 'librarian.pdf'.

    Thank you Roger and all.
    Norma, In the 1950s my Mum sang "Stay in Your Own Backyard" too. I was raised in Melbourne Australia so it was just as popular here. I identified with the child in the song even though I was considered "different" for reasons other than because of my race.
                                                 Cheers, Joy

    National Library of Australia Musical Collections

    The Library holds the largest research collection of music in Australia. Its strengths are in retrospective and contemporary Australiana, including printed music, published and unpublished scores, and archival sound recordings of folk song and dance traditions in Australia. The collection consists of music and music-related materials that form part of the documentary record of Australian culture, including:

    music (published and unpublished scores, and archival sound recordings)
    resources about music and musical life (books, journals, electronic resources, programmes, images, oral histories, pictorial collections and papers of individual musicians and music organisations)

    The term 'Australian music' is defined as music created by Australians, published in Australia or associated with Australia by explicit Australian performance or subject reference.

    Printed Music
    Archival Sound Recordings and Oral Histories
    Indigenous Music
    Digital Music
    Overseas Music

    Here's a lovely site that shouldn't be overlooked:

    You need to join it in order to access the goodies, and at the moment no one can get in, either members or new registrations, because she's updating it; but keep checking back. It's worth it.

    I was going to ask this in Max's Update thread, but it's more relevant here - Joe or any of the clones, elves and other assorted wildlife:

    I notice on Mudcat's front page that there is a very fine colletion of Russian folk songs which is archived in (among other formats) sheet music form, as scanned .gif files. I looked around and didn't see any other sheet music (though I could have missed something), so my question is - would the Cat be interested in having a general sheet music library of further scanned .gif files? I don't know if it would take up too much bandwidth, but if not then let us know. I could certainly scan some .gif files and then email them in. Or would .jpg files be better?

    Is this a good idea? (Or a bad one?)

    Note on copyright: At least in Europe, the composer (and also I assume the arranger, unless you just send in a lead-line with chords) must have been dead for 70 years, so we're talking before 1938.

    When I go to the Melody Lane web site—see Bonnie's link above—I get a message from my AVG Anti-Virus Resident Shield:

    Threat detected!
    Accessed file is infected
    File name: C:\ ... \melodylane_net[1].htm
    Virus identified: HTML/Framer.S
    Detected on open.

    The program offers me a button that says "Heal" but I am still wary of the web site. I would gladly email the owner to notify her of this problem, but she doesn't have a "Contact Us" link on her home page, and I am reluctant to go exploring the web site to try to find one. Also, I am not willing to register as a member at this point.

    Bonnie: assuming you are a member and you have already explored the site (and thus already incurred whatever damage can be done, if any) could you notify her?

    Not sure what's happening. I went to the site on a computer with XP and AVG anti-virus (which is a genuine programme, not a Nasty) using both Firefox and IE browsers. In each case (I actually went through this procedure three times) I got the same AVG warning, but when I clicked Heal or Remove File - both of which I tried - it said Cannot Heal/Remove: File Does Not Exist. After shutting the browsers I scanned the entire machine using the most updated version of that same AVG and it found absolutely zilch. It never even burped during the scanning process, and gave the All Clear.

    Unfortunately I'm not a member of MemoryLane so I can't email Jill to ask her about this - I used to be one, but that was ages ago on a different computer. When I tried to join, the link took me to a page which says that the site is down at the moment and is not accepting new registrations. It doesn't look as though existing members can even get in touch with her, though I don't know for sure. This problem certainly didn't happen a few days ago when I posted that link, or I would have said something. But the site itself has a gorgeous array of sheetmusic on offer, and has been going for some years - so don't write it off.

    I am just about to PM John In Kansas to ask for his comments about this - I'm stumped. I have no idea why AVG found something and Norton didn't... ?? Or why AVG found a malfile and then said it didn't exist. But the computer seems to be unscathed. Jim, have you scanned yours? What did it tell you?

    Further googlings yield these two comments, from separate people in blogs. But be warned, I'm only quoting them and can't guarantee accuracy:

    - Clear the IE temp files, from IE's Tools->Internet Options->General->Temporary Internet Files, and it's gone.

    - This is not a virus and not a Trojan. It is an IFrame Exploet code in the HTML and it was
    blocked from writing and thus doesn't exist on your PC.

    Off to PM JiK now...

    Bonnie -

    Per your PM, I've looked at the site and get no warnings from my Norton Internet Security. From the indications seen, I don't see a reason to be concerned about visiting there.

    The site has blocked viewing of page code, so it's not possible to look at whether the file Jim reported is called in the code somewhere. (Any right-click on the page just pops up a copyright notice.)

    A check of my Temporary Internet Files1 folder doesn't show anything resembling the file cited.

    Four of six times that I opened the page, IE reported "Done but with errors." This might indicate that the page code is "not quite finished" or that the server is experiencing some difficulty. In all cases, a "refresh" got a normal "Done."

    The site has been fairly well known, and has been reliable. It's possible that the "page under construction" is a euphemism for "we got hit and we're cleaning it up" but I see no threat when I look at the front door. I didn't try any of the links, since they told me I can't go there without registering; but they all show apparently "good names" with none that resemble the cited file.

    One of the difficulties faced by those who write the goodies for AV is determining what "signatures" to check that will reliably detect all real cases of a particular malware but will not give too many false warnings. This seems to be a rather rare happening, but does occasionally get mentioned.

    There is the possibility that a signature was used by AVG that gives a false postive here, and that a fresh update of the AVG program signature file might get a more accurate detector that doesn't report an infection from something that only "looks a little bit like" some real threat. Corrections of this kind are generally not considered critical, so sometimes such a correction will wait until a scheduled update, but you usually can get it sooner by manually updating.

    I think I heard that AVG has a fairly recent "newer version" of their (free?) program, and if the older one is still in place it may not be getting updates(?).

    As several people, with multiple AV programs/versons report a "clean" page, the suggestion would be that Jim make sure his machine has the latest detection updates and visit the site again to see if the warning still appears - but if he's reluctant to go back I wouldn't press him to do so.

    As noted by Bonnie, there are crud forms that claim to be AV programs but are actually scams to scare people into buying useless (and often harmful) "programs." A problem here is that the malware discussed in the thread she mentioned actually uses the same name as one of AVG's programs. (The malware name is an "included part" of the name of at least one AVG version. Several other AV providers use very similar, if not identical names.) In order for this to be a factor, some such malware probably would have to be on Jim's computer. That's probably not likely, since we know he's a generally competent user; but it's a possibility that he might look at if he's concerned. An unexpected request, while browsing, that "something needs updated" - especially if fairly recent - would be a possible warning sign that something might have crept in, or tried to.

    Several of the "geek sites" do report a fair number of "false positives" claiming this or similar "viruses." It's worth noting that the AV in use in nearly all these cases was AVG. This is somewhat puzzling, as AVG still gets fairly good reports in comparison tests I've seen recently, and does have a "good reputation." It could just be that most of the people asking them for help happen to use AVG. (And not all the geek reports were completely convincing in their analyses, although all seemed to have cleared up the problems.)

    1 For anyone interested and not familiar with how to get to them, the simplest way to access Temporary Internet Files in IE is at Tools | Internet Options, on the General Tab, there should be a section called "Browsing History" with "Delete" and "Settings" buttons. Click "Settings," and then "View Files" and they're all right there.

    Hi everyone,

    I was trying to obtain a copy of the "Indiana Moon" (by Isham, Jones and Davis) music sheet, and i found this forum.

    Thank you for posting the link and the list btw!

    But everytime I go on and search the music sheet I want, I can't view it. If I press either "save" or "open" or "Save as", there are no pop-up that asks me where I want to save it on my computer. Instead, it adds the search result to a "my virual collection" list.

    Can anyone please tell me what I'm doing wrong an dhow I can save it on my computer?

    Thank you!

    hmmm... I went there and searched on "Cohen", then clicked on one of the small images. This gave me more images down the left side of the page. Then I selected one of the 'zoom in' options, which gave me a pop-up of the larger image and I can right click and save that.

    It's several steps for each page, but it seems to work ok.

I've looked everywhere and can't find anything, sheet music, lyrics,etc. One of you listed it as one of the songs that the website has but I am not finding and actual sheet music on the website, in fact all the things you are talking about on this website I do not recognize. Am I not using the website properly? Please, please, please help!

    Hello Hannah - from Helo Havanna.

    Consider the dialogue in Act II, Scene 2 from Romeo and Juliet

    From that origin you should find a dozen open source tunes available.
    Good hunting, correct insertion will bear fruit.
