(Apr 16, 2013): Tex Williams and His Western Caravan – Smoke, Smoke, Smoke! (That Cigarette)

From the 1947 78rpm 10″, Smoke! Smoke! Smoke! (That Cigarette) / Roundup Polka.  I remember growing up with the Jimmy Dean cover of this Merle Travis/Tex Williams tune.  It was the b-side to a spoken word ditty called “Dear Ivan” which was about how ordinary Americans and Russians could be friends even at the height of the Cold War.   I also remember the Commander Cody cover of this novelty.
