As The School Bell Rings

Song written by my Great Grandfather, William A. Kearns, 1919
It was obvious he loved the days of the one room schoolhouse as much as
the writers of the more famous song "School Days"

TWO MOON SONGS

By The Light Of The Silvery Moon and Moonlight Bay

By The Light Of The Silvery Moon - Words by Ed Madden and Music by Gus Edwards (1919)
Moonlight Bay - Words by Edward Madden Music by Percy Wenrich (1912)

In the early years of the twentieth century, moon songs became very popular...
I think because lyricists realized they needed a romantic word that rhymed with "spoon". ;)
Melody Lane Custom MP3 for both songs, with vintage recordings of both songs in MP3
