Song lyrics: with someone like you, a pal so good and true

My grandpa used to sing a song to me that I am looking for: with someone likeyou, a pal so good and true, I'd like to leave it all behind and go and find - someplace that's known, to God alone - just a spot to call our own. +We'll find perfect peace - where joys will never cease - out there beneath the western sky. +We'll build a sweet little nest - somewhere out in the west - and let the rest of the world go by.

song lyric

Refrain: I'm going there in a bamboo chair 'cause I've got my fare from here to Hong Kong. It was on an old '78 that we played on a Victrola. I didn't seeit on your list, as it probably wasn't a big hit.

Old song, who sang this.(lyrics like this I remember)

In a quaint little house, by the old village church, an old lady lives alone,she's just a grey haired lady, Her eyes are filled with tears, her smile always makes you welcome, there can only be one mother, she's all the world to me.

song/ "Lucky Lindie"

when I was a teen my father me some old 78s that my mother threw away. These are the only ones I can remember the titles to

Vernon Dalhart's 1927 song "Lucky Lindy" was a tribute to the aviator Charles Lindbergh. Later events such as his child's kidnapping, his enthusiasm for Eugenics and his pro-German stance before Pearl Harbor made him seem less Lucky.

We go dancing in the park

My dad used to sing this song to me, and I can't find the name of it or the lyrics on-line. It went like this "We go dancing in the park is nice. Is nice. You like. I like. I like it to."

It seemed like the singer/lyricist spoke English as a second language and my dad would sing it with an accent. He came from a Polish immigrant family in Chicago.

Do you know this song?

Part of a song from late 1800's

I don't know the title but part of the lyrics are as follows: the night was dark and fearful, the blast whaling by, a watcher pale and tearful, looked forth with anxious eye.

#4 Tell Me Pretty Maiden

According to Joel Whitburn, this recording features Byron G Harlan, Frank C Stanley, Joe Belmont and the Folorodora Girls.

You will notice that it is also listed in other sources (from different countries), they give the entry we have.

Most music from before about 1940 has a range of different ways the artists can be assigned, we try and ensure consistency rather than worry about exactly matching a single source.

I'm looking for the the lyrics and melody to "JUST A ROSE IN A GARDEN OF WEEDS" No one believes me that there is an old song out there with this title

We think that the song is the one listed here as "Garden of Weeds". Which was a minor hit for Paul Whiteman in 1935. You could have found it by searching for "Garden of Weeds" in the search box at the top of this page.

We, of course, do not have any lyrics here.
