Thread Name: Lyr Req: Bread and Gravy
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Bread and Gravy
This song was, indeed, public domain, but the various versions are very similar. The one recorded by Homer & Jethro (1963 - on "Ooh! That's Corny") was copyrighted by Moe Jaffe and Dwight Latham, who wrote "I'm My Own Grandpaw." It's listed in the ASCAP file as "Bread N Gravy." Since ASCAP's search system is very sensitive to wording variations, it only picks up the different Hoagy Carmichael tune under "Bread AND Gravy."
