Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Cocaine Bill and Morphine Sue
More to the point, perhaps, "Cocaine Bill and Morphine Sue (Have a Sniff on Me)" was copyrighted on June 26, 1923, with words and music by "W.H.P." (William H. Putnam) and "G.S.D." (George S. Dyer) of Ft. Lee, N.J., and New York City, respectively. (Ft. Lee is at the other end of the George Washington Bridge from Manhattan).
