Trying to Find Sheet Music

Sir,

I'm trying to locate sheet music for "When You're A Long, Long Way From Home" by Meyer and Lewis.

Do you know where I might be able to locate this?

No we don't. We have no sheet music here, but maybe another user can suggest a source?

Awesome songs!!

i love this time period...it's hard to believe that these songs are what made our music today. It makes me wonder what life was like during this time especially during the first world war how the music shapped their lives in a time of great and utter chaos!!!
