Rozza Lyr Add: The Old House (Frederick O'Connor) (29) Old House : Author? 27 May 10

Does anyone know who wrote the lyric to "the Old House", popularised by Irish tenor John McCormack. It is wrongly credited in places to Lady Nairne (Caroline Oliphant), whose similarly titled song is quite different. McCormack's song begins:

Lonely I wandered through scenes of my childhood
They call back to memory those happy days of yore.
Gone are the old folk, the house stands deserted,
No light in the window, no welcome at the door.
