SONGS OF LONG AGO
Before the coming of radio, g.»od
roads, and jazz, rural people while
away the long winter nights with
singing and strumming on the banjo
or playing the guitar or fiddle. These
songs were never written on paper
but were handed down from genera
tion to generation by the firside sing
ings. Words of the same songs varied
with the different eommiinities. Stan
zas were often added by individuals
or groups. Most of these songs have a
touch of sadness permeating the I
theme. More are purely humorous.!
Others contain a mixture of pathos1
and humor. One of the most popular
of these old time songs was
LITTLE BLACK MUSTACHE
Once I had a charming beau,
I loved as dear as life;
I surely thought the time would
When I would be his wif.
His pockets they were filled with
I And, Oh, he cut a dash,
With a diamond ring and a watch
And a little black mustache.
He said we’d live in grandest style,
For he hacj lots of cash;
And then he pressed against my lips
His little black mustache.
.ami men mere came a cnarmmg oia
She was worth her weight in gold.
She had false hair, she had false
She was forty-five years old.
And then he cruelly deserted me
Just for that old maid’s gold.
She married him for his black mus
And he married her for her gold.
Now then, young girls, take my ad
And do not be so rash,
To fall in love with every boy
That wears a black mustache.
