Hello, my great grandmother is dying with cancer, she has asked me to find an old song her mother use to sing to her as a child. I am guessing the time was 1920’s and some of the lyrics are:
Dolly when you grow to be a lady,
Who will wash your face and comb your hair.
Dolly when you grow to be a lady
Who will tuck you in and hear your prayers
(or say your prayers).
This is all I know and I have looked for hours on the Internet and I cannot seem to find anything. Any help of suggestions of where I might find these full lyrics would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
If anyone can help out with this song, please comment below. It would be a great help!
