Possibly a companion to Ida - Ho! (1906), Sacramento is another Harry Von Tilzer paean addressed to the Golden West. The cover of the original sheet music shown a young lady sat in profile in an arboreal setting back-lit by a golden sky and framed with Red Indian symbols. Its form is AABBACCBB with a 4-bar introduction and 12-bar interludes preceding each of the final BB-strains. The AABBA- and CCBB-strains are written in the major keys of G and C respectively. As to the characteristic itself it is somewhat subdued and introspective - perhaps a comment on the dichotomy in American society regarding the treatment by early white settlers of the red-skins in their ancestral hunting grounds.
Sacramento was published by Harry von Tilzer Music Pub. Co., New York, USA.
