1926




Edwin J. McEnelly’s Orchestra “Tuck In Kentucky And Smile”


Howell, Horsley And Bradford
  • Wasn't It Nice
  • *Harry Wills, The Champion

*Harry Wills, The Champion is an very interesting protest song about an African American boxer who was active in the 1910s and 1920s. The undefeated Harry Wills (42-0) was slated to fight Jack Dempsey in November of 1924 for the heavyweight title of the world, but the bout was canceled denying Wills a shot at becoming the second African American to hold the title. The chorus of this song goes something like this, "Harry though they draw the colored line you're the champion just the same. They way they all fuss and stall is a doggone, measly shame. Everybody knows what you would do would be to bang on him till he's dark blue. Harry though they draw the colored line you're the champion just the same"

LYRICS:


When It's Sleepy Time Down South
Songwriters: Muse, C;Rene, Leon;Rene, Otis


Pale moon shining on the fields below
Folks are crooning songs soft and low
Needn't tell me so because I know
It's sleepy time down south
Soft winds blowing through the pinewood trees
Folks down there like a life of ease
When old mammy falls upon her knees
It's sleepy time down south
Steamboats on the river a coming or a going
Splashing the night away
Hear those banjos ringing, the people are singing
They dance til the break of day, hey
Dear old southland with his dreamy songs
Takes me back there where I belong
How I'd love to be in my mammy's arms
When it's sleepy time way down south
Dear old southland with his dreamy songs
Take me back there where I belong
How I'd love to be in my mammy's arms
When it's sleepy time down south
Sleepy time down south



Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby


I got a gal that's always late
Every time we have a date
But I love her
Yes I love her
I'm gonna walk right up to her gate
And see if I can get it straight
Cause I want her
I'm gonna ask her
Is you is or is you ain't my baby?
The way you're actin' lately makes me doubt
Yous is still my baby-baby
Seems my flame in your heart's done gone out
A woman is a creature that has always been strange
Just when you're sure of one
You find she's gone and made a change
Is you is or is you ain't my baby
Maybe baby's found somebody new
Or is my baby still my baby true?
Is you is or is you ain't my baby?
The way you're actin' lately makes me doubt
Yous is still my baby-baby
Seems my flame in your heart's done gone out
A woman is a creature that has always been strange
Just when you're sure of one
You find she's gone and made a change
Is you is or is you ain't my baby
Maybe baby's found somebody new
Or is my baby still my baby true?
