THE classic hobo song performed by Harry “Haywire” McClintock. According to the Wikipoids, the song dates to a 1928 sheet music copyright by one “Billy Mack.” Prior to the widespread availability of recorded discs, most of the money to be made was in selling sheet music for parlor pianos.
McClintock sued for copyright infringement and lost, yet the song is usually attributed to McClintock anyway.
