I mentioned its popularity in 1920's-1930's. Yes, mostly 'country'. Here are some I found of the 'American??' song.
Carson Robson, Perfect 12475, 78 rpm. Offered on Ebay Aug. 25 with two other records (270020041931)
Prairie Ramblers, Mercury 6116, 78 rpm
Frankie Marvin, 1929 Victor
Jimmie Green and His Orch. Col. Vitaphone 2364D
Frankie Wallace and Gene Autry. Conquerer 7704
Harry Reser orch., Tom Stacks vocal, Brunswick
Six Jumping Jacks---BRITISH RELEASE of same song- See Red Hot Jazz

I think you found Billie Bennett, "Almost a Gentleman," on Virgin cd.

I'll look for the 'country' ones among my home-made cds.
