Thread Name: Lyr Req: London Bridge Is Falling Down
Subject: RE: London Bridge is Falling Down
The Lomax 1939 Southern States Recording Trip collected audio of children singing "London Bridge." "London Bridge" it ain't!
American Memory

There are several other children's rhymes in this collection and others at American Memory which can be found by entering London Bridge in 'Search.' An interesting one from South Carolina is "Come to the Sawmill."

In "Child's Own Set," Plain Cotillions No. 3, Septimus Winner published sheet music for London Bridge, along with melodies for other rhymes. Philadelphia, Winner and Shuster, 1855. American Memory.
