1926. Lew Brown; Cliff Friend

One of the most feelgood songs I know. Learnt it listening to an old Cliff Edwards record. As winter comes a' creepin' down here, this is dedicated to all you folks in the northern climes. :)

No sheet music can I find anywhere so the chords are a bit ad lib. I'll have a PDF songsheet up on my website tonight if anyone wants to learn my version. BUT If anyone does have the original sheet music for it I would love to hear from you! Thanks gang

Thanks a lot for watching and the nice comment Jeff. It's a little custom model bruko soprano. This one is kinda unique in that it has a 3-piece top and back made from bahia wood (a rosewood species) and curly maple. I have some close up pics and a short write up with specs here mate: http://www.eugeneukulele.com/ukes.html
