I GET ALONG WITHOUT YOU VERY WELL

Latest update on 11/04/2015

Artist: Dick Powell
Author: Hoagy Carmichael/Jane Brown-Thompson
Year: 1939

Lyrics inspired by a poem published in Life in 1922: Except Sometimes as by a JB. Hoagy kept this clipping among his papers ever since. He insisted in finding the poem's author before publishing his song. They did, but she died the day before the song was introduced by Dick Powell on radio.
