Lyrics

By Request ~ 1962

Notes: ~ introduced as an instrumental, "I'm Free," by Bob Crosby and his Orchestra in 1938. Haggart was bass player in the band. Trumpeter Billy Butterfield had an outstanding solo and later recorded the song with Jess Stacy's Band (Varsity) and his own band (Capitol), for which it was the theme. Bing Crosby also recorded this song for Decca.
