Thread Name: Origins: Some of These Days C Patton or S Tucker
Subject: RE: Origins: Some of These Days C Patton or S Tucker
Sophie Tucker first recorded the song in 1911 and many times after, so the song would be well known to people of that generation.
Tucker was born in 1887, Patton sometime between 1887 and 1891.
I think Patton fits the 'songster' mode, and would have
gathered songs from the larger community. This certainly was
the case with Leadbelly who had a wide repertoire of popular songs.
Best wishes, Thomas.
