I MAY BE GONE FOR A LONG, LONG TIME. Grace La Rue's
Instantaneous Success in Raymond Hitchcock and E. Ray Goetz's New
Musical Review "HITCHY-KOO." Music by Albert von Tilzer, Lyrics by Lew Brown,
Broadcast Music, Inc., New York, 1917.
A World War I era song released in 1917. It was featured in the 1917 stage production of Raymond Hitchcock and E. Ray Goetz's "Hitchy-Koo". André De Takacs designed the sheet music cover. It features Grace La Rue's image blended into the clouds of an ocean scene. The song was written for both voice and piano.
Scarce WW1 sheet music with graphic cover art showing an image of a woman in the clouds over an empty sea. Nice cover art with 1-1/2 closed bottom spine edge tear that opens up on the inside to be twice as long, otherwise clean in nice condition. About 14 x 10-1/2 with 3 pages.
