Words & Music by Herbert "Happy" Lawson, 1921
Note: This song has long been "tattooed" into my brain. I believe I knew & sang it before I could even walk & talk!
Likely...my mom often sang and played it. It's "catchy"!
I don't remember when I DIDN'T know it but, only this morning, did I take the trouble to read up about it.
Yes, it's more than one hundred years old but there is almost nothing in the "historical record" about its composer, Herbert Lawson.
Live from Sonobus, 8/10/22.
