Last lines of songs

Here  are the last lines of some songs.  Can you tell the name of the song from its last line?  The answer is printed in invisible ink right after the last line.  Just drag your cursor over the line to see it.

I know... this is a rerun, but I like it too much to let it lie fallow.


The home of the brave STAR SPANGLED BANNER

From sea to shining sea AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL

His truth is marching on BATTLE HYMN OF THE REPUBLIC

That I overlooked before FOUR CLEAF CLOVER

Let freedom ring AMERICA

And the band played on STRAWBERRY BLOND

My home sweet home GOD BLESS AMERICA

I owe my soul to the company store SIXTEEN TONS

Clippoty Clopping to the top MULE TRAIN.

With my banjo on my knee OH SUSANA

So I lost my Clementine CLEMENTINE

We will kill the old red rooster when she comes SHELL BE COMING ROUND THE MOUNTAIN

Ours will still be hot FRIENDSHIP

Betrayed by a maid in her teens DARING YOUNG MAN ON THE FLYING TRAPEZE

On our golden wedding day PUT ON YOUR OLD GRAY BONNET

Playin on the old banjo WORKING ON THE RAILROAD

Love my baby, Deed I do FIVE FOOT TWO


Tell ya boys don’t we have fun LITTLE BROWN JUG

I do hope that doggie’s for sale HOW MUCH IS THAT DOGGIE IN THE WINDOW

Put them turnips in my soup TRICK QUESTION NO SUCH SONG

So If she’s the one, don’t let her run away april love (thanks Silk)

I’d lay me down and dee (die) ANNIE LAURIE

Spend a little time with me HEY GOOD LOOKIN

Without a love of my own BLUE MOON

Wont you please come home? BILL BAILY

King of the wild frontier DAVY CROCKETT

Wont you choo choo me home? CHATENOOGA CHOO CHOO

Just waiting for you  (I don't remember what this song was.)

Makes the world taste good CANDY MAN

Hear the wind blow TOM DOOLEY

Disturb not my slumbering fair FLOW GENTLY SWEEET AFTON

Has anybody seen my gal FIVE FOOT TWO

The old gray goose is dead GO TELL AUNT RHODY

Learning about you day by day Getting to Know you (King and I)

And I’ll give it right back to you GIMMIE A LITTLE KISS

I’ll be there ere long GIVE MY REGARDS TO BROADWAY

O’er the deep blue sea GOOD NIGHT LADIES

I hope you’re satisfied you rascal you GOODY GOODY

The skies are not cloudy all day HOME ON THE RANGE

Your golden sun will shine for me SAN FRANCISCO


None other has ever known IN THE GARDEN

You oughta see me do my stuff I’M A DING DONG DADDY FROM DUMAS

Waiting to find a little blue bird in vain I’M ALWAYS CHASING RAINBOWS

You aint no friend of mine HOUND DOG

My knapsack on my back THE HAPPY WANDERER

I’ll be waiting at the k k k kitchen door…K K K KATY

And you’ll be my queen LAVENDER BLUE

Meet me at the fair MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS, LOUIS

A word that means the world to me MOTHER

Listen to the Jazz come out MUSIC GOES ROUND AND ROUND

It’s a grand old name MARY IS A GRAND OLD NAME

The One day I need a little rest NEVER ON SUNDAY

Everything’s going my way OH WHAT A BEAUTIFUL MORNING


Many long years ago THE OLD GRAY MARE

Why, oh why, can’t I? OVER THE RAINBOW

Come make your home inmy heart PEG O MY HEART

Make it mine, make it mine make it mine THREE COINS IN THE FOUNTAIN

Like a diamond in the sky TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE STAR



I’ll tell you mine YOU TELL ME YOUR DREAM

Wonderful feeling, wonderful day ZIP A DE DOO DAH

All the years are met in thee tonight . O LITTLE TOWN OF BETHLEHEM

I think I'll marry him, though he's 83, think what wealthy widow I'll be,oh Charley my boy

Aww Chuck, this is beautiful, know it but couldn't remember all the words right now. It's late, I can't sleep, because I am missing my little grandkid Holly so much. Hubby has been very ill mentally and I don't see family then. They stay away. Just need to hold that little kid in my arms and hear her say nanny I love you. It's been a long 4 weeks, since I saw her last. She goes to school only 3 miles away. We are and always have been very special to each other. Sorry to cart on like this, but those words made me sad. Hope life is treating you kind, my friend.

I was reallyu surprised at how many I actually knew, thought I had to sing the last line a few times, until I could find another line or two and then the whole song came back. Margo

I got almost all of them, but it took a very long time, because, of course, I had to sing every single song all the way through.  I love lists like this - a trek down memory lane.

You got two wrong, though.

Down in the valley [the valley so low, hang your head over] hear the wind blow is "Down in the Valley", not "Tom Dooley".  The last line of "Tom Dooley" is Poor boy you're bound to die.

I owe my soul to the company store is "Sixteen Tons" (Tennessee Earnie Ford), not "Mule Train".  The last line of Mule Train is Soon they're gonna reach the top, clippity clop clippity clop.

Oops, found another.  "So If she’s the one, don’t let her run away" is not the last line of "I WANT A GIRL JUST LIKE THE GIRL".  It's  from Pat Boone's  "April Love".  The last line of "I Want a Girl" is "I want a girl just like the girl that married dear old Dad."

(Yeah, I'm still singing here.  AOL is so slow tonight that's all I can do.)

You know, this brings back memories of singing with my mom and grandmother.  I sang many of these to my kids as well.  a few years back, my daughter asked me to teach her a couple to sing to her kids.  Ahhhh.  Thanks for the walk down memory lane.  Blessings, Penny

Learning about you day by day is from the song "Getting to Know You" from the KING and I  -  the other one, well, my memory isn't that good anymore.  Penny
