This has the same title. Not sure it's related, although the writer's credit on the Wiseman opus goes to someone named Smith.

Nice. Bluegrass with a hint of Swing.

I enjoyed the tune by Mamie Smith and thank you for sharing. Other than the title, I don't believe there is any connection. The Mamie Smith version from 1920 was written by Perry Bradford. The Mac Wiseman version was written by Arthur Smith, and recorded by him on October 7, 1940. I couldn't find his version on YouTube so hastily uploaded it
