Indeed an odd item; cf. Four Aces, "She's More to be Pitied" (Bluebird B-7765/Montgomery Ward M-7724, 1938). Neither this song, nor certainly a recording of it, figures anywhere in Jimmie Rodgers's discography, and despite the fact that he is also listed on this label as a co-composer, the song was actually written by William B. Gray and published in 1898. If someone here on Discogs winds up actually owning a copy (the current "Have" statistic is 0, at the time of this writing), it would be interesting to see who the vocalist listed as "Jimmie Rodgers" might actually be--or if this is actually a different song, since Jimmie Rodgers did have several songs with a similar theme in his repertoire.
