World,The Varsity Drag, You're the Cream in My CoJfee, Button Up Your Overcoat, You Are My Luclqt Star, Keep Your Sunny Side Up,

Mort Dixon began writing songs in the early 1920s. He achieved success in 1923 with his first published effort, That Old Gang of
Mine. Dixon also penned the lyrics to such popular hits as I'm Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover, I Found a Million Dollar Baby,
You're My Everything, The Lady in Red, Would You Like to Take a Ll/alk? and River, Stay 'Way from My Door.

Most of the aforementioned songs are barbershop favorites which are published by the Barbershop Harmony Society. Both
Henderson and Dixon are members of the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Brian Beck has arranged numerous songs for BHS groups, Sweet Adelines International ensembles (including the Dallas champion
chorus Rich-Tones) and his gold-medal championship quartets, the Dealer's Choice and the Side Street Ramblers. His published
charts include his original songl'm Sorry I Made You Cry, with the famous "Cry" tag; Goodbye, Old Dixie, Goodbye; You Can Have
Every Light on Broadway; and The Story of the Rose (Heart of My Heart).
