A treasury of American song by Olin Downes( Book )

America has always been a singing country. From the very earliest days, our people have plunged into the wilderness, or gone down to the sea in ships, or worshipped God, or amused themselves in cities, or marched off to war, with songs on their lips. Those songs, simple or more sophisticated, have expressed every shade of human feeling and every turn in our country's history. In this magnificent collection Olin Downes and Elie Siegmeister have gathered nearly 200 of America's songs from every period and every way of life we have known
