Old Sweet Song
Words: G. C.
by Merv Rowley
Clifton Bingham (1859-1913) was a professional lyricist
from Bristol who penned the words to "Love's Old Sweet
Song" in 1882. Bingham was the son of a bookseller and
he wrote stories, children's books, and lyrics to over
1600 songs. He claimed to have written "Love's Old Sweet
Song" at four in the morning, and composers immediately
fought for the right to use them. Molloy won by
telegraphing his request.
James Lyman Molloy (1837-1909) was born
in Cornalour, Rahan, Ireland to a wealthy family. He
studied in Dublin, Paris and Bonn, but spent most of his
life in England. Although he was called to the bar in
1872, he was never a practicing attorney. At the time of
his death, it was written that every British home which
had a piano had a copy of "Love's Old Sweet Song." The
song was said to have the "right combination of melody
and sentiment" and was easy enough to become a general
favorite. "Love's Old Sweet Song" was very popular
in the 1890s.
