Dear Ken,
The intro and verse are on the 1922 records by Bailey's Lucky Seven  
and The California Ramblers.
These can be heard on the Red Hot Song Archive (courtesy of DJMLer  
Craig Johnson and Scott Alexander) at
The great Condon Commodore version with Fats is also there.
It is also on two albums, but with or without verse, I do not know.  
Neither are in my collection.
• 'Swinging Minstrel' (1963). Clancy Hayes.  Good Time Jazz M12050.
• 'Clancy Hayes Special' (1999). Bob Schultz Frisco Jazz Band. Stomp  
Off CD 1349.
Kind regards,
