    Charles Bourne is my great uncle and I would like to find a recorded copy of this song…any help will be appreciated.

  3. M.Bourne, if you’re looking for a version with Ruth Etting, I don’t think there is anything on the web right now. Occasionally a 78 will come up for auction on eBay, but I don’t find one currently.

    If you don’t care who the singer is, there are several versions available right now on YouTube!

    Good luck with your search!

    Thank you Cheryl, I did find a few recs of it by various artistes, I would love to hear his version though, he was quite a piano player…he could make it sing….almost.
