Subject: RE: Help: Children's songs/games ca. 1912
The Girl Scout Camp I went to as a child (Bonnie Brea) opened in 1918. When cleaning up my songbook for lyric problems I found that the song we sang as White Sails...

White sails they never grow weary
They carry me cheerily over the sea
Night falls I long for my dearie
I spread out my white sails and sail home to thee.

Probably began as White Wings which was written in 1912. You can find it and the midi at
If it's not in the DT I'll post later when I've got more time.

I think this may be the tune to the Black Socks parody sung at camp today.Good Luck I'll try to find a few more on Friday.
