Tin Pan Alley was about 50 years in the past when this song was written. (1953)

I have a MIDI of this song which I downloaded from somewhere. I disliked the fake fiddle which has the lead, so I changed it to a clarinet sound. On days when I want something to cheer me up, I play it.

Joe, shall I send the file to you for posting? The song is copyrighted material, but apparently nobody seems to mind.
