17. WHEN THE GREAT RED DAWN IS SHINING.

(B flat.)

Tho' I am far across the ocean blue,
Each lonely hour my heart remembers you;
Each tender look, each word I used to know,

Comes back to, back to me,
From out the long ago.

When the great red dawn is shining,

When the waiting hours are past,
When the tears of night are ended

And I see the day at last,
I shall come down the road of sunshine,

To a heart that is fond and true,
When the great red dawn is shining,

Back to home, back to love, and you. (Copyright, 1917, by J. B. Cramer & Co., Ltd., and published by special arrangt ment with Chappell & Co., Ltd., New York City.)

18. OVER THERE,

(B flat.) Over there, over there, Send the word, send the word over there,

That the Yanks are coming, the Yanks are coming, The drums rum tumming everywhere. So prepare, say a prayer, Send the word, send the word to beware,

We'll be over, we're coming over, And we won't come back till it's over, over there. (Used by permission of William Jerome Publishing Corporation.)

19. I MAY BE GONE FOR A LONG, LONG TIME.

I may be gone for a long, long time,
Long, long time; long, long time;

But when I go

You will know
That I'll always pine

For the day when you'll be mine.
Be true to me for a long, long time,
Rain or shine, Sweetheart mine,

And I'll be just as true to you

As to the Red, White, and Blue,

Though I'm gone for a long, long time. (Copyright, 1917, by Broadway Music Corporation, Will Voo Tilzer, president,

145 West Fordy-fifth Street, New York City.)

20. SEND ME A CURL.

There's a corner in my heart
That I'm keeping all apart

For the little girl I left behind.
I can see her waiting there
With the flowers in her hair

And the roses in her cheeks entwined ;
So when you're thinking of me over yonder,
When you wonder what I want to wear,
Send a pretty little curl

From the sweetest little girl in my home town, (Used by permission of Huntzinger & Dilworth, publishers.)

21. THE STAMMERING SONG. K-K-K-Katy, beautiful Katy,

You're the only g-g-g-girl that I adore; When the m-m-m-moon shines over the c-c-c-cow shed,

I'll be waiting at the k-k-k-kitchen door.

22. GOING BACK H-O-M-E.

Going back, going back,

Going back h-o-m-e.
Going back, going back,

From the lands across the sea.
Going back, going back,

When we've made the whole world free;
We'll clear the track till we get back,

Going back h-o-m-e.
(Copyrighted by The John Church Co., 1917.)

23. I'LL WED THE GIRL I LEFT BEHIND.

I can picture to-night by the dim candle light

The girl I left behind.
I can see her once more by the old cabin door,

Watching with love divine.
Oh, I gave her the ring and I promised to bring,

Bring the parson back and make her mine,
So I'm going right back, hang my hat on the rack,

And wed the girl I left behind. (Used by permission of M. Witmark & Sons, publishers and owners of the copy. right.)

24. I DON'T CARE WHERE THEY SEND ME.

Oh, I don't care where they send me,

Or what it is I have to do;
And I don't care what may happen

Or where I am when I get thru;
But I do care for you, Dearie,

With your dreaming eyes of blue;
So while I'm fighting over here,

My heart is home with you.
(Used by permission of T. B. Harms & Francis, Day & Hunter.)

25. INDIANA.

(G.)

I have always been a wand'rer,

Over land and sea,
Yet a moon-beam on the water

Casts a spell o'er me,
A vision fair I see,

Again I seem to be:
Back home again in Indiana,

And it seems that I can see
The gleaming (andle light still shining bright

Through the sycamores for me.
The new-mown hay sends all its fragrance

From the fields I used to roam;
When I dream about the moonlight on the Wabash,

Then I long for my Indiana home. (Used by permission of Shapiro, Bernstein & Co.)

26. WHEN JOHNNY COMES MARCHING HOME.

(G minor.)

When Johnny comes marching home again, hurrah,

hurrah! We'll give him a hearty welcome then, hurrah,

hurrah! The men will cheer, and the boys will shout,

And the ladies, they will all turn out, And we'll all feel gay, when Johnny comes marching

home.

27. LI'L LIZA JANE.

I'se got a gal and you got none, Li'l Liza Jare,
I'se got a gal and you got none, Li'l Liza Jane.

Ohe, Li'l Liza Jane
Ohe, Liza, Li'l Liza Jane.

Come my love and marry me, Li'l Liza Jane,
I will take good care of thee, Li'l Liza Jane.

Liza Jane done come to me, Li'l Liza Jane.
Both as happy as can be, Li'l Liza Jane.

House and lot in Baltimo', Li'l Liza Jane,

Lots of chilluns roun' de do', Li'l Liza Jane, ; (Used by permission of Sherman, Clay & Co.)

28. LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN.

(B flat.)

There's a girl I love who waits on Lookout Mountain,

with a mountain of love for me; On the windling path where first we found each,

other, that is where I long to be; She is sweeter than the songs the birds are singing,

back home in Tennessee, There's a girl I love who waits on Lookout Mountain,

with a mountain of love for me. (Used by permission of Shapiro, Bernstein & Co.)
