Carrie Jacobs Bond (August 11, 1862 – December 28, 1946) was an American songwriter who composed popular music from the 1890s through the early 1940s.

She is perhaps best remembered for writing the parlor song "I Love You Truly", becoming the first woman to sell one million copies of a song.

This song, a mainstay of the "parlour" repertoire is deceptively simple - it includes quotations of the melody in the bass-line, a number of harmonic devices such as diminished chords (deceptive cadences) and secondary dominants. In fact, in the minute or so it takes to play, it packs in a whole lot of music!

Finding a key that works was hard. It has a few funny shapes in whatever key you choose, but for me, D with a dropped bass seemed to create the least issues and kept it quite close to the original harmonies. Her music entered the public domain in 2016.
