Hello,

I remember hearing a song several times on Radio Dismuke but I have not heard it in a long time. It had to do with a man who like "big girls". His girl was so big that when he gave her a hug he had to bring a piece of chalk to mark the way so he could find his way back. On day while giving his girl a hug he meets another man coming around the other side.

Very funny song. I would love to purchase or download it.

Thank you

Gregory, for some reason the YouTube link in your posting published in such a way that it does not work. But here is a corrected link to it that should work:

Benny - was the song Gregory linked to the song that you heard? If so, when you heard it on Radio Dismuke was it during one of the Nauck broadcasts perhaps? I checked the station's playlist library and that particular song is not there. I also looked up the date it was published which was 1946 - which is a few years newer than the recordings the station features. But it is entirely possible that it might have been featured on one of the semi-annual Nauck's broadcasts which covers a greater range of decades than the station normally does.

Anyhow, if that is the song you were trying to recall - mystery solved. But if not, let me know and I will see if I can try to figure it out. I cant recall any song in the station having such lyrics. But there are over 3,000 recordings in the station and I don't always pay all that close attention to lyrics when I listen to music.

That is certainly the lyrics I recall but I thought it was a faster 20's - early 30's style. I know I heard it more than once.

It is possible that I heard it on Rat Patrol Radio (1940's), the only other music station I listen to other than old time radio shows, and only thought it was on Dismuke. I could have added the faster 20's music in my head.

After looking up the name of the song it seems it was written by Clancy Hayes "...a jazz vocalist, banjoist and guitarist born November 14, 1908 in Caney, Kansas." (from wikipedia). That would put him at 28 in 1928. I guess it is possible he could have done an early version. I couldn't find a date the song was written. I did find this:

Still not what I thought it was. I'm assuming I'm mixing it up. I liked the 20's version in my head better smile.gif

Thank you very much for the help. Let me know if there really is an older version

Correction: I meant 20 years old in 1928. Oops.

Hoagy Carmichael seems to be the one with the 'big hit' with it... Maybe if you scroll down this list on amazon another artist will be the one you're looking for...

Well, my wife confirmed it when she heard the you tube video. She remembers it as more swinging 1940's.

It must have been from the other station. Sorry about that.

Thanks again for the help. I wouldn't have figured it out without the name of the song.

Hoagy's version was the most well known, I think.
