Q: We are interested in obtaining the lyrics to "The Vacant chair." Is that possible? wsp25@comcast.net
A: We are in the process of putting all the lyrics from our CD at dearesthome.com. In the meantime, The lyrics, by Henry S. Washburn, are based on his experience with the Grout Family on Thanksgiving, 1861. George F. Root published the song in 1862. You can see some period editions at http://library.duke.edu/digitalcollections/hasm/?keyword=The+Vacant+Chair
