Does anyone know an old sheet music site? I want to get a graphic of the original sheet music to "My Old Man (Said Foller The van)".
Not the words, just the sheet music cover.
Thanks

Hi-
The formal name of the song is "Don't Dilly Dally on the Way."

I couldn't find sheet music - but I did find a YouTube video of Miss Piggy singing this classic: (click). We have the lyrics in our Digital Tradition Folk Song Database.

I looked at half a dozen sheet music sites, and didn't find it.

Thanks Joe, it's a picture of the sheet music cover I'm after. It seems odd there isn't one out there for such a well known song.

Yeah, I thought maybe there's be a cover picture at eBay, but no luck. You'd think somebody would have a copy for sale, since it's a fairly common song. AND since it's out of copyright, I thought one of the many Sheet Music sites would have the whole thing for free.

"We have the lyrics in our Digital Tradition Folk Song Database." @Irish?????

Since when has London been in Ireland? I suppose on that basis the The Star Spangled Banner is a traditional French song?

Snuffy ~~ I raised precisely that point [in re 'Dilly-Dally'] in the "What does tarried mean?" thread ongoing simultaneously; & received a convincing answer from Lighter, to effect that Clancys & Makem recorded it in a Cockney medley of some sort in the 60s. Hence this error/confusion. See that thread for more info.
