Uke Origins: I'll Never Let You Cry (Mitchell/Pollack) (9) RE: Origins: Stand in the rain 01 Apr 13

Just discovered what is probably the original version of this song with the songwriting credits. From:

From the film "In Old Chicago" (1937)
(Music: Lew Pollack / Lyrics: Sidney D. Mitchell)

Versions recorded by Alice Faye (Film Soundtrack) - 1937; Teddy Grace - 1937; Artie Shaw & His Rhythm Makers - 1938; Slim Whitman.

A version by the Texas Wanderers (which has the pretty much the same melody I know) can be heard on Youtube at:

One can conclude that the lyrics I posted above are a NZ verse added to the Pollack/Mitchell song. Cleveland's 1991 book has another quite different verse too.
