Thread Name: Lyr Req: Sugarbush (Josef Marais)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Sugarbush
This South African song was originally called 'Suikerbossie'.

In 1933, it was already sung by David de Lange, the most famous Afrikaans singer in the country. Also by Fred Michel, who seems to have written it.

Prior to Boswell and Day, it was aleady recorded as 'Sugarbush' by Josef Marais in 1946 (Decca 78).
