Appearance Order – Song Title Index



This is the order in which they appear in the content of the book. The songs are not numbered within the pages nor are the pages numbered. Numbers have been added for organizational purposes only.  Round bracketed information indicates extra markings added to pieces while square brackets indicate words that were questionably illegible. These indicate dates as Frances Jackson, who signed and dated the front of the book December 31, 1928 married to become Frances Mary Montgomery in June of 1929 thus the initials FMM.  These initials may but do not necessarily indicate original compositions.

  1. John Guice on

    Sixty plus years ago I heard a song which staerted “as an old tramp sat resting one day down a lane, when a group of young sportsmen came by, they told many tales of his tattered ols clothes——————— you can’t put a stop to misfortune, for what is to be will be, I might have been up in the world like you or you might have been down like me. I would very much like to know the complete song. Any idea where i may find it?
