wilco Origins: Tramp on the Street (17) RE: Tune Req: Tramp on the Street 20 Jul 03


This is one of my favorites. I've got it by Molly O'Day. Wilma lee Cooper, and Roy Acuff. I have notes that it was copyrighted by Grady and Hazel Cole in 1940. "... this was patterned after a much earlier religious song called 'Only a Tramp!' by Dr. addison D. Crabtree in 1877." One set of verses are almost identical. I understand that there was a copyright dipute over this song, involving the fellow who also wrote "Wreck on the Highway>"
