Halloween music of 100 years ago?

This weekend I recorded myself playing The Skeleton Rag, a song from 1911 by Percy Wenrich (of Put On Your Old Grey Bonnet, On Moonlight Bay etc. fame) with words by Edward Madden. I added the lyrics to the video. I'm playing it in F though the song sheet music is in E-flat. I also mistakenly played a couple extra measures in the chorus. Oops!

I also messed with "Soft Kitty" from The Big Bang Theory. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqiTIGTx01I
