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


Written by Gilbert Wills and Johnnie Dunn


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).
