Dankuwal! What a sweet, old-fashioned melody. I visit the archive site for books occasionally but did not realize they had old music as well.

I was given a cardboard box full of these and other than sell them I have no idea what to do with them...There's a beaut of one with Gloria Swanson on the cover that I want to scan and put up.

This is a lovely old song. Willie Nelson and Leon Russell did a really nice version on an album they made together years ago. I've got some old sheet music from my grandmother that I used to play when I was still playing piano; the arrangements are so nice, simple enough for an amateur to play but still an ornament to the song.

What song has Gloria Swanson on the cover?

"Love Your Spell is Everywhere." And she's carrying a ducky picture hat, too.
