Hi Franz ... Nice to hear from you.
The late Walt Robertson used this song as his "theme song" for the year he produced a weekly TV show in Seattle. His show was named ... "The Wanderer!" I think the year was 1953. He used the words as you've written them, but his tune was his own. I know that he told some people the source of his tune, but I simply don't remember. I'm betting that either Don Firth or Sandy Paton might remember that part of the story. CHEERS, Bob(deckman)Nelson
