Billy Murray #12

You're A grand Old Rag(Flag) was also voted into the Library Of Congress (NRR)in 2002.

We had that listed as "You're a Grand Old Flag", we'll change it. Thanks for the suggestion

Song By FW Leigh and CW Murphy

I've been searching for lyrics for a song written by the subject writers called "Dominic McCue". +I have found it was written in 1906, but have yet to find the lyrics, artist or recording. Thank you for your help.

Mary's A Grand Old Name

I'm disappointed you did not include "Mary's A Grand Old Name."

At 17, I lived with my grandparents. My grandfather born in 1883 at Philadelphia used to sing many of the songs of his youth, So Long Mary, Gee, I wish I had a Girl, Meet Me Tonight in Dreamland, Dear Old Girl, I had a Dream, dear, Tell Me Pretty Maiden, and many others. I was fascinated.

He named my mother "Mary" because he loved the song "Mary's a Grand Old Name." Wasn't that from 1906 too?

Tommy

As we've mentioned elsewhere the administrators of this site don't pick any of the songs listed. We combine entries from charts round the world.

There are very few charts from before 1920 which is why this data is so sparse.

If you know of any web data that lists hit songs from before 1920 we would be glad to consider adding their input to this list.
