Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'Moon, moon, beautiful moon...'
The US Catalog of Copyright Entries lists:
MOON, MOON, BEAUTIFUL MOON
Words by O. Roaten, music by Lee Darnelle
New Albany, Miss: Olivia Roaten, ©1931.
* I think that means it was not published as sheet music at the time the copyright was registered; it probably appeared first in another form, such as a recording or a movie soundtrack. Maybe sheet music was published later; maybe not.
