Mick Pearce (MCP) Origins: The Flying Cloud (86* d) RE: Origins: The Flying Cloud 04 Jan 19

Lighter. The source is Wehmans Universal Songster, Vol 42 and according to the site This collection of around 6000 songs was taken from a set of 61 song books published quarterly roughly between 1884 and 1899 by the Henry J. Wehman publishing company of New York and Chicago.. If they were quarterly, vol 42 would be somewhere about 1894.

That attribution "sung with...". looks like the sort you get on sheet music. I've looked at several of the sheet music sites and though I found a Flying Cloud Gallop, Flying Cloud Schottische and Flying Cloud Waltz (all from around 1850), I didn't find a song.
