Labor Day Parade March Composer: H. C. Verner Published By S. Brainard’s Sons Co. Chicago, 1896.

Funny, Joe Hinton (1964)First recorded by country singer Billy Walker in 1961, Joe Hinton’s version made No. 13 on Billboard’s Top 100, No. 1 on Cash Box Magazine’s R&B list, and was one of Willie Nelson’s first hits as songwriter.
