written by Oliver Hood 1933
recorded by Gov. Jimmie Davis 1939
Jimmie took off where J. Rodgers left off.
Country with a little bit of Jazz. A request from one of them that broke my heart.
4 string cohiba box
3 string Oakie bass.
Another late night recording.
It's plucky & klunky
I'm sure this is the only time i'll play it

Thanks Rob, not everyone likes the sound of a loose lid or squeaky box but I do.
