    I love the bold graphics of this pretty cover.
    Words & music by Albert Hay Malotte, copyright 1935 by Bourne, Inc. "Original Proprietor Irving Berlin, Inc" Assigned 1936 to A B C Music Corp., 799 7th Ave., NYC.

    Here are the lyrics:
    What in the world could be so sweet, As the thundering clatter of horses' feet and the SONG OF THE OPEN ROAD! Let me live and never worry about tomorrow, Why every worry about tomorrow! For tomorrow's another day! Let me love and then ride away. Life is short, they say, and may be for me, so let me be free!

    I'm on the road to anywhere! Let me travel on with no more load and no more care, just like a vagabond. I'll let the blue sky above me cover my head, why should I want a feather bed?

    So let me travel and sing my song of the road, the long, long road, the SONG OF THE OPEN ROAD!

      Thanks Thomas - So True! Graphics here show the romance of the West, in the middle of the depression. My great uncle Bert jumped trains to find work in the 1930's.

      Fort - I thought of you when I found this sheet music. Thanks friends: akaJohn, Karen, Mike, Caperkid and Ken.

      Wonderful picture reminds me of a movie with Kurt Douglas...

      Thank you Ms.Crystal - but that movie is from 1960's. You need to dig deeper in your psyche to find your 1930's memories. LOL...!

      Albeit a slightly different genre, Albert Hay Malotte also composed another song which some may still be familiar with...?

      Graphics and colours are so wonderful !~

      AnthingObscure - I could not find the link to Albert Malotte and I tried!

      Phil - yes thanks - you agree about the graphics and colors!

      So sorry valentino97, that link got badly garbled 'in translation'. :-(

      Try searching wikipedia for [The Lord's Prayer (Albert Hay Malotte song)] and you should get close. Since composed, the song has been recorded by a long list of famous singers/groups - it is also very commonly used at weddings to this day. (often in 'live' renditions of widely varying quality, many of which are probably best *not* recorded...)

      The graphics and colors ARE perfect. I love that art deco look but OMG the WORDS!!! Now how perfect are they! Overwhelming, right?!? You get a 10 for this pick!!!

      Thank you AnythingObscure - I copied the pages so my brother will have to play it when I visit next month!!

      Thank you Share - isn't it cool?? So nice of you to love it too. I bought another one from this etsy seller from Cerritos. Let me dig it out....

      Thanks everyone who loves this romantic image: Roddy, Oroy, Kevin, Bijou, Phil, Ted, Mike and Sean :-)
