Thanks for posting that historical info.

There's no doubt of the 1939 copyright date. (See my post of Jan. 1, 2019).

Obviously it isn't impossible that Roberton was performing the song before that, but Wikipedia gives no assurance that he was.

If the 1920s date was anything more than a guess by the contributor, there should have been a source note.
