Hoping all you very knowledeable people can help.
My great-aunt is turning the big 100 later this year[:0] and has requested someone sing Silver Threads and Heart of Gold.
Apart from the difficulty in getting someone to sing... we can't find the lyrics:(. Has anyone heard of this song?
While it is always possible she has mistaken the song we don't think it that likely as she is sharp as a tack and is famous for her memory.
We have had suggestions that she may mean 'Silver threads among the Gold' or 'When Silver threads are Gold again' and will check with her.
But if anyone has suggestions or can even suggest a good place to look we'd be grateful.

Strange how much you've got to know, Before you know how little you know.

Google is your friend, and I'd hazard a guess that it *is* supposed to be "Silver Threads among the Gold". A quick search will bring up the lyrics and a midi file of the tune.

Good luck,

A

Darling, I am growing old,
Silver threads among the gold
Shine upon my brow today,
Life is fading fast away.
But, my darling, you will be, will be,
Always young and fair to me,
Yes, my darling, you will be,
Always young and fair to me.

cho: Darling, I am growing old,
Silver threads among the gold,
Shine upon my brow today, ;
Life is fading fast away.

When your hair is silver white,
And your cheeks no longer bright,
With the roses of the May,
I will kiss your lips and say:
Oh! my darling, mine alone, alone,
You have never older grown,
Yes, my darling, mine alone,
You have never older grown.

Love can never more grow old.
Locks may lose their brown and gold,
Cheeks may fade and hollow grow,
But the hearts that love will know
Never, never, winter's frost and chill,
Summer warmth is in them still;
Never winter's frost and chill,
Summer warmth is in them still.

You Live and Learn, or you don't Live Long -anon

Thanks guys. We had, of course, googled and come up with similar results to youall.
If, she wasn't so 'with it' we would accept she made a mistake but seeing as she can remember all her nieces and nephews names, their partners names, their chilrens names, their partners, the children's childrens names... and their ages[:0] (100s of people) we are a tad reluctant to 'assume'
Plus it sounds like a love song to my older relatives... and aunty has been steadfastly single all her life.

If you ask her who she remembers singing it (or perhaps if she remembers when it came out? Like, perhaps it was an oldie when she was young, or it might have been her favourite song when she was 16), then you cld use that variable to google it, too. I have a singing FIL and if you let me know a few more details I cld ask him (alth he's more opera than a/thing else, but worth a try!)

Dusty springfield and lynda rhondstat sang this
Silver threads and golden needles

I dont want your lonely mansion
With a tear in every room
All I wants to love you, promise
Beneath the haloed moon
But you think I should be happy
With your money and your name
And hide myself in sorrow
While you play your cheating game

Silver threads and golden needles
Cannot mend this heart of mine
And I dare not drown my sorrow
In the warm glow of your wine
But you think I should be happy
With your money and your name
And hide myself in sorrow
While you play your cheating game

Silver threads and golden needles
Cannot mend this heart of mine
And I dare not drown my sorrow
In the warm glow of your wine
You cant buy my love with money
For I never was that kind
Silver threads and golden needles
Cannot mend this heart of mine
Silver threads and golden needles
Cannot mend this heart of mine

Wine does not make you FAT it makes you LEAN...
....against tables, chairs, floors, walls and ugly people.

There ia an old song sung to happy birthday that has the words "Silver Hair amongst the gold"
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday, dear Mary.
Happy birthday to...
Mary you are growing old
Mary let me fix you garter
Just one inch above your knee
If my hand should slip up farther,
Please don't put the blame on me
If the hair of your's were silver
And the hair on mine were gold
We would mix them all together
Silver threads among the gold

Maybe she means "Silver Hair and Heart of Gold" by Layton and Johnstone. I just listened to the song at this address. Give it a listen....maybe it is what she wants. They were popular in the 20's and 30's. Good luck.

Thank you lady yank:) That is a wonderful site you suggested. Other family members are following up your suggestions.
And they are somewhat astounded that lifestyleblock was able to give so many helpful suggestions:D
