    Looks like a bunch of typical "rowdys." Can you pick out Lewis (age 24)? And does anyone know what college he graduated from?

    Music by Lewis Taylor Nellson - Published 1916
    FIRELIGHT

    1st Verse
    As the twilight shadows steal around us, dear
    And the wintry winds make hill and vale so drear,
    Join me where the firelight embers are aglow
    Watching fairy visions as they come and go.

    Chorus
    Firelight, firelight bring to view,
    Faces of loved ones we both knew,
    Shadows that are formed by the dying glow,
    Bring back memories of long ago.

    Firelight, firelight cast your spell,
    What has fate in store, please tell?
    As we sit and ponder,
    Letting fancies wander,
    You fill us with delight firelight.

    2nd Verse
    Like the firelight, dearest, if loves passion glows,
    Life is filled with endless sunshine and repose,
    But love unrequited leaves one grey and cold,
    Like the dead charred embers that we now behold.

    Chorus
    Firelight, firelight bring to view,
    Faces of loved ones we both knew,
    Shadows that are formed by the dying glow,
    Bring back memories of long ago.

    Firelight, firelight cast your spell,
    What has fate in store, please tell?
    As we sit and ponder,
    Letting fancies wander,
    You fill us with delight firelight.
