I talked with Connie Jones today and he said credits for the song are
listed as himself and Roy Montgomery. It was copywriten in 199? although
the original song was released in 1941 with Lanie(?) Thomas on vocals. Mr.
Montgomery was a noted bank robber in his day and wrote the song while in
prison. He contacted Connie about recording the song, and in the agreement,
Connie's name was added as one of the writers of the song.
Luis, Connie thinks all his sheet music has been lost because of the 4 feet
of water that came inside to the lower level of their house. He and his
wife are on their way back to check on things in New Orleans, but he said as
soon as he has opportunity, he will create another lead sheet for you.

Luis Daniel Flores was recently asking about a Connie Jones vocal called To
Be Remembered on a Connie Jones and his Crescent City Jazz Band CD called
Rhythm King. No one seemed to recognize the album. It is Crescent City
Records 1214, and came out in the mid 1990s.
The personnel are: Connie Jones (cnt), Ed Stoddard (tbn), Glenn Wilson
(clt), Les Muscutt (bjo), Warren Felts (tuba), Russ Williams (dms) and
Ronnie DuPont (pno), The group is the Connie Jones touring band of the
period, plus the piano player. It's a nice CD.
