Stephen Foster Songs Lyrics

Appendix II is a delightful collection of the beautifully decorative covers from the original sheet music of some of the songs in this book. Because this book is comprised of the original lyrics of the songs written well over a century ago, it should be viewed in terms of historical significance, not political correctness. While some of the words and sentiments are now out of date and politically incorrect, the melodies remain beautiful and timeless. Slang terms and insulting stereotypical themes which were once mainstream and common, are now offensive and totally unacceptable. Despite these lyrical shortfalls when viewed in today's light, the underlying simple melodies remain timeless classics. The catchy tunes are hard to get out of your head, and will live on forever, just as they have already lived on 150 years since Foster departed, so please enjoy.
