Meade et alia reference a recording Of a blues of this title by Emry Arthur on 30 August 1928 - an ealrier 19 July recording was unissued - Vocalion 5264. They note, however, that it is NOT the blues of the same title printed in Jerry Silverman 'Folk Song Encyclopedia II' Chappell Music Co 1975 p 52. I don't have a copy of Silverman's book, but it may have what you want.
