Well this isn't from the 1920's, but I think it's one of the all time great songs of the desert. laugh.gif

Ahab the Arab - Ray Stevens

It's not from the 20's either, but another one of the all time greats about the desert would have to be 'Cool Water' by Bob Nolan and The Sons of the Pioneers.

As an aside, talking about deserts and sheiks, brings us to Valentino, and in this period the verb "to sheik" seems to have been invented. Presumably it means to romance a woman in the manner of Valentino smile.gif

Here is Annette Hanshaw He's So Unusual listen to the phrase "But in his sheikin' he's weak"
