Some Old Lonesome - Day Artists & Track
« on: June 01, 2016, 06:01:46 PM »
Hi all,
I'm searching for the artists, it's a male and female duet, and track for a song most likely titled "Some Old Lonesome Day"
or possibly "Some Day, Sweet Day". I had it on a reel to reel tape as a teen recorded from one of the 2 jazz (and blues) radio shows available in Sydney Australia in the 1960s. It's in 8 bar blues form, laid back, medium tempo. most likely 1930's. East Coast style?  I can't find it on line. or eMusic , iTunes. I remember first two verses:

Some day, sweet day, some old lonesome day.
I'm coming home to you baby,
Some old lonesome day.

I was born (where a-bouts?) in Georgia,
But I hang around Tennosee
I got a gal in Georgia
Partner she's crazy 'bout me.

Thanks for your help.

Sounds like Lonesome Day Blues - Blind Willie McTell, Curley Weaver and Ruth Willis, if I remember it right:

Weaver and Willis did it as Some Cold Rainy Day:

Thanks Frankie, you found it. Lonesome Day Blues by Blind Willie McTell is the one. Have found on iTunes.
The track lists Ruby Glaze as the singer. Helps to know the correct title. Many recorded variations on this song.
I will add it to my repertoire now I have all the lyrics.
