"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.
