Sadie Green (The Vamp of New Orleans) (1926)

Unknown

Written by Gilbert Wills and Johnnie Dunn

1926

I plunked out just the notes to the verses on an electronic keyboard.  Listen below:

 

The chords and lyrics in the key of C.

 

The original musical notation in the key of F.  I transposed it (above) to a more singable key for me.

 

Thank you Hoyle Osborne for transposing this to the key in which I wrote the chords (C).
