Tune Req: Brother can you spare a dime

Written for a musical in 1931 called "New Americana" which was a flop, by EY Harburg and somebody called J Gorney. Bing Crosby recorded it in 1932. Does anyone have the score?

I know there are lots of recordings of it (a couple by me!) but I have two brilliant jazz guitarists lined up ready to play it for me. They would like to read the notation and the wonderful jazz chords.

Can't find a site that has notation and score. Any hints?

I have already found this thread.CFM?threadID=7405#44656

But the birdies on the wires would be good too.

Levy Sheet Music site lists two copies - but no scans - because it's still under copyright.
