The fast-growing recording industry of the 1930s had a considerable effect on the repertoires of many country singers and musicians. This version was first recorded on a Regal Zonophone 78 by the Irish singer and melodeon player, Frank Quinn, who emigrated to America to become Highway Patrolman Frank Quinn, and appears on several records with picture labels resplendent in his uniform astride a Harley Davidson. This version, unlike Patrolman Quinn's, is not in waltz form, though the story line is from Quinn. It was gathered during a session with a pub pianist in Husbands Bosworth, Leicestershire.
