#4 SONGS OF THE SOLDIERS AND SAILORS.
54.  CARRY ME BACK TO OLD VIRGINNY,
(A flat.)
Carry me back to old Virginny, There's where the cotton and the corn and tatoes grow, There's where the birds warble sweet in the spring­time, There's where the old darkey's heart has long'd to go. There's where I labored so hard for old Massa Day after day in the fields of yellow corn. Ko place on earth do I love more sincerely
Than old Virginny, the State where I was born. Carry me back to old Virginny, There's where the cotton and the corn and tatoes grow. There's where the birds warble sweet In the springtime, There's where the old darkey's heart has long'd to go.
(Copyright, 1917, Oliver DitsonCo.)
55.  SILVER THREADS AMONG THE GOLD.
(B flat.) Darling, I am growing old; Silver threads among the gold Shine upon my brow to-day, Life is fading fast away; But my darling you will be, will be, Always young and fair to me; Yes, my darling, you will be Always young and fair to me,
"Darling, I am growing, growing old,
Silver threads among the gold.
Shine upon my brow to-day,
Life is fading fast away.
