I am surprised not to find this in the database. Today I bought a fifties R & R CD very cheap, and this was on it by Lloyd Price, the version I know.
I always thought that this was a "tradtional" song in the sense the author is not known. Certainly I have heard longer versions played in bars by bar bands.
Who wrote it? Lloyd Price? Full lyrics? It has a pre-Prohibition sound & feel to the lyrics. (Mind you, so do many of Stan Rogers's songs)
Pleased to be enlightened:)
