Title
Jack Gorman
Additional title: A little lad who cries his ware of papers on the street, Met death not very long ago, as few men death would meet; car that came the other way, struck him while passing by, A whirr of brakes, alas! too late [first line]
Additional title: Ev'ry pain was forgotten in that one sweet thought of home, Bravely love held the starting tear drops back; Only care for the dear ones, in the shadow of death, Greater men have not lived, than little Jack. [first line of chorus]
