 This month's tab is an arrangement of the Tin Pan Alley era classic "In The Good Old Summertime".  Written by songwriting team of Ren Shields (lyrics), and George Evans (music), it was first performed as part of the musical comedy show "The Defenders" in 1902.  The song became an immediate hit, and went on to sell over 1 million copies of the sheet music.  It was performed and recorded by many of the popular artists of the day, including the Haydn Quartet, Billy Murray, and the John Phillips Sousa band.   Shields and Evans went on to write several more hit songs together, including "Dreamy Eyes" and "Come Take A Trip In My Airship", but "In The Good Old Summertime" remains their most well known work. 

Here is a link to a YouTube video of this song being performed by the Haydn Quartet, a popular group from the Tin Pan Alley era.

As was true of many songs from that era, it originally included both a verse and a chorus, but it is only the chorus that has survived in popular culture today.   This arrangement includes both parts.


In music and friendship,




Verse 1:

There's a time each year
That we always hold dear
Good old summertime
With the birds and the trees'es
And sweet scented breezes
Good old summertime
When your day's work is over
Then you are in clover
And life is one beautiful rhyme
No trouble annoying
Each one is enjoying
The good old summertime

In the good old summertime
In the good old summertime
Strolling through a shady lane
With your baby mine
You hold her hand and she holds yours
And that's a very good sign
That she's your tootsey-wootsey
In the good, old summertime

Verse 2:
Oh, to swim in the pool
You'd play hooky from school
Good old summertime
You'd play "ring-a-rosie"
With Jim, Kate and Josie
Good old summertime
Those days full of pleasure
We now fondly treasure
When we never thought it a crime
To go stealing cherries
With faces brown as berries
In good old summertime
