TNDARLN Lyr Req: several Old Gospel songs (35) RE: Lyr Req: Old Gospel Lyrics 25 Jul 01

'tis done! I just finished scanning the TOCs from my gospel song book collection- 'knew I had a few, but turns out there's 73 of 'em!! Oops, didn't count the last two I just got from Ebay, but then, they're really hymnals.
I don't find the "There's a Beautiful City/Heaven", and I'll have to look for the others later. And I'll certainly try to do lookups as requested. Right now I'm in the backtoschoolgottageteverythingdonebefore mode, so it may take a while.....;)
I will mention this: in the process of looking for, say, Carter Family songs in these books, I found that often the titles used on recordings are not even close to the title the songwriter gave their song. The title for "On a Hill Lone and Gray" is actually "Calvary". 'don't even remember how I found that one....sometimes there's an index of first lines; but sometimes there's not even a connection.....
