Comments
Journalist and songwriter. He was the literary editor of the music publishing firm of Francis, Day and Hunter and the lyricist of some of the most popular songs of the Edwardian era such as: "Why Am I Always the Bridesmaid"; "Don't Dilly Dally On the Way"; and "Waiting at the Church". In 1905, when the 19-year old Jerome Kern was on a visit to London, he collaborated with Leigh on a song called "Won't You Kiss Me Before I Go?".
