Also the first recognizable version was done in 1936 or so. I used to play that one in one of the bands I was in....yeah it was kinda weird.

Yeah, Tom is really old. He was just a kid when that first got popular.
He's got a good memory for an old guy.

From his statement, I had to wonder if it was Joe's band that did the first recognizable version... His avatar says it all, eh?! Grampa?

Maybe I come to Ashtabula county and meet you sometime. It'd be a short trip from Lexington, KY, right?
