1920s Sheet Music I Ain't Got Nobody Sophie Tucker Blackface Song

"I Ain't Got Nobody and Nobody Care for Me"

Copyright 1914 Sheet Music Recorded by Sophie Tucker in the 1920s

Blackface Song by David Young and Charles Warfield

Publisher Frank L. Root & Co. Chicago & New York

A young Sophie Tucker recorded this song in 1927, the same year as Bessie Smith, though she was singing it even earlier. It became one of the all-time most recorded songs written prior to 1920, with renditions from Fats Waller, Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, Chick Webb, and Count Basie, picked up later by Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney;, and Sammy Davis Jr., and ; country artists such as Bob Wills, Merle Haggard, and Teresa Brewer, and in the 1980s as a hit again by David Lee Roth. It certainly outlived its vaudeville popularity as a blackface song.
