Who did, and what is the name of, this song:

"Anytime you're feeling lonely, anytime you're feeling blue"? That's all I know.

Several performers recorded this song. Eddy Fisher and Jerry Vale come to mind, but Eddy Arnold's was the most popular I think as far as the charts were concerned.

That's the time I'll be thinkin' of you,
And any time you say you want me back again,
That's the time I'll c ome right back to you.[Cm]

I think the song was written in the 1920'a or 1930's, but I am not sure. Eddie Fisher had a hit with it in the 1950's, too, but I believe the song had been around quite a while prior to that. Anyone know the author (s) and publication date?

Levy has this sheet music (Click on the title), but the publication date is wrong; it cannot have been 1921, which is the date of the copyright. Eddy Arnold was born in 1918; Eddie Fisher in 1928!

Title: Any Time.
Composer, Lyricist, Arranger: Words and Music by Herbert Happy Lawson.
Publication: Beverly Hills, Calif.: Hill and Range Songs, Inc., 1921.
Form of Composition: through-composed
Instrumentation: piano and voice; ukulele
First Line: Any time you're feeling lonely, any time, you're feeling blue
Performer: Recorded by Two Great Stars for RCA Victor Eddy Arnold, Eddie Fisher.
Engraver, Lithographer, Artist: unattrib. photos of Arnold and Fisher

Emmett Miller sang this song (see this thread: Emmett Miller).

That's a great site you came up with there masato - not least because, as well as some great music, it's got a link to the RealPlayer Archives, where you can download a copy of the older versions of RealPlayer, which are much better for my purposes than the newer ones.

I'll be sticking a link to it on my pages.

Emmett Miller recorded it about 1928, the cd is at home or I could be more specific. If memory serveds me it was on the Okeh label and the Dorsey brothers were in the band.

Thanks for the copyright info, Masato. I'll bet that date is correct, because I know the song had been sung by others long before either Eddie Fisher or Eddy Arnold. It probably just didn't make the top of the charts, such as they were, at its original publication. That's not unusual. (E.g., "Teddy Bears' Picnic" was first published in 1906 but did not become popular in the US until the late 1940's or early 1950s.)

If the sheet music which lists Arnold and Fisher purports to have been published in 1921, that's a different matter, of course. (Most often, I find the 'error' is the other way around--newly published sheet music for a very old song often contains a very NEW copyright date, presumably meaning the copyright on that sheet music or that arrangement.

Eddie Fisher used this as the theme song for his TV show back in the 50's, which I believe was called "Coke Time" or possibly "The Coca-Cola Hour". I think Coca-Cola was pleased to tie into the idea of Coke being an "Anytime" drink, in direct competition to the Dr. Pepper's "10, 2 and 4" campaign which offered the unsupported contention that more of their soft drink was consumed at those hours.

It's not through-composed, it is strophic, Masato--for those of you who care about such things, JustaPicker has done an admirable recording of this song--as to the chords posted above, they need to be cleaned up quite a bit before they make sense, and for what it's worth, the Eddy Arnold version is in the key of F--

Thanks Ted.

For anyone interested (and if you have a web enabled Mp3 player) you can hear the track by clicking here. It features an old friend of mine Joanne doing the vocal honors, and as well, our own Rick Fielding was kind enough to provide the tastey dobro and mandolin solos. (Picking and other instruments was courtesy of yours truly.)

Subject: Lyr Add: ANY TIME (from Emmett Miller)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 15 Jun 06 - 09:03 AM

The Online 78 rpm Discographical Project says that Herbert 'Happy' Lawson (the songwriter) recorded ANYTIME on July 31, 1925.

Emmett Miller, accompanied by his Georgia Crackers, made 3 recordings of ANYTIME in 1924, 1928, and 1936. (The Georgia Crackers, by the way, included Jimmy and Tommy Dorsey and Gene Krupa!) The Red Hot Jazz Archive has the latter two, from which I transcribed these lyrics:

VERSE: Now I'm so sad and blue,
'Bout nobody but you.
Why you don't say nothin' to me?
I told you that I loved you right from the start.
You told me the very same thing and now you try to break my little heart.
If you don't want me, why don't you come and tell me so?
I love you and I'll say just before I go:

CHORUS: Now, any time that you are lonely,
Any time that you are blue, oh, Lawd,
Now, any time you're feeling downhearted,
That will prove to you my love is true.
Now, any time you're thinking of me,
That's the time I'll think of you, oh, Lawd.
Now, any time you want me back again,
That's the time I'll come back to you, oh, Lawd.

Interestingly, Miller's singing style includes a 'blue yodel' that is very similar to that of Jimmie Rodgers.

The Red Hot Jazz Archive also has a recording of ANY TIME by Clarence Williams' Jazz Kings from 1928. Williams has messed around with the lyrics quite a bit, and doesn't even credit Lawson as the songwriter, but you can hear strong similarities:

Any time, honey mine, you feel lonely,
Any time, honey mine, you feel sad,
Oh, any time, baby mine, you need leg (?), dear,
Send for me and 'twill be just too bad.
Any time, honey mine, that you need me,
Take your phone, call my home, one-eight-nine,
'Cause I've got just what it takes to make you happy,
Any time, honey mine, any time.

The Lester S. Levy Collection of Sheet Music has the sheet music. It gives 1921 as the copyright date, although this particular printing of the sheet music is obviously from much later. Also, it omits the verse that Emmett Miller sang.

"The Reader's Digest Country and Western Songbook" also has the sheet music of ANY TIME, and it seems to match the Levy copy. It says Eddy Arnold recorded it in 1948, Eddie Fisher in 1951, and Patsy Cline in 1963, although her recording wasn't released until 6 years later.

Hi,I only know the Arlo Guthrie version and I begin that on my guitar with C A7 D (capo 3) but as I'm not a professional musician, ask, could fit or am I wrong ? Thanks a lot.
