Last Lines

Each of these is the last line of a song.

Can you name it?

             Answers follow

The home of the brave

From sea to shining sea

His truth is marching on

That I overlooked before

Let freedom ring

And the band played on

My home sweet home

I owe my soul to the company store

With my banjo on my knee

So I lost my Clementine

We will kill the old red rooster when she comes

Ours will still be hot

Betrayed by a maid in her teens

On our golden wedding day

Strummin' on the old banjo

Love my baby, Deed I do

Truly, Dear

Tell ya boys don't we have fun

I do hope that doggie's for sale

Put them turnips in my soup

So If she's the one, don't let her run away

I'd lay me down and dee (die)

Spend a little time with me

Without a love of my own

Wont you please come home?

King of the wild frontier

Wont you choo choo me home?

Just waiting for you

Makes the world taste good

Hear the wind blow

Disturb not my slumbering fair

Has anybody seen my gal

The old graygoose is dead

Learning about you day by day

And I'll give it right back to you

I'll be there ere long

O'er the deep blue sea

I hope you're satisfied you rascal you

The skies are not cloudy all day

Your golden sun will shine for me

Deed I do

None other has ever known

You oughta see me do my stuff

Waiting to find a little blue bird in vain

You aint no friend of mine

My knapsack on my back

I'll be waiting at the k k k kitchen door

And you'll be my queen

Meet me at the fair

A word that means the world to me

Listen to the Jazz come out

It's a grand old name

The One day I need a little rest Every things going my way

E I E I E I O

Many long years ago

Why, oh why, can't I

Come make your home in my heart

Make it mine, make it mine make it

Like a diamond in the sky

I'll be there

Baa Baa Baa

I'll tell you mine

Wonderful feeling, wonderful day

All the years are met in thee tonight

I owe my soul to the company store MULE TRAIN
Isn't that called 16 Tons?  

Playin on the old banjo WORKING ON THE RAILROAD
I learned this line as "Strummin' on the old banjo."

Put them turnips in my soup TRICK QUESTION NO SUCH SONG
I thought I heard something similar to this recently on my weird local station that plays weird stuff.

I'll be there WHEN THE ROLL IS CALLED UP YONDER
Possibly also the song called I'll Be There

Spend a little time with me HEY GOOD LOOKIN
What about Hey Big Spender!

Loved this.  Had my own private little SingAlong!  

Btw, I think "Learning about you day by day" is the last line of "Getting To Know You" ("Getting to know you/ getting to know all about you/ getting to like you/ getting to hope you like me...") from the musical "South Pacific"

Thanks for the smiles.

Oops.  Meant to include the last lines of "Getting To Know You"....very slightly different from what you have, but it may jog your memory further.  The song ends "With all the wonderful and new/ things I'm learning about you/ Daaayyy By Daaayyy"

This was so much fun!  I got to sing this morning!  Good thing no one was in ear-shot :-).  I haven't heard of a few of these.  xox

ooh a lot of these remind me of old songs we used to plink along on my grandmothers organ. One was Peggy ONeill (which happened to be my aunts name). We thought that was the COOLEST! And Grandma and Papa would sit and hum or sing along. Ahhh the good ol days!
