My Bucket's Got A Hole In It

Dick Warren

Big 4 Hits 232


A hit for Hank Williams in 1950.

Clarence Williams,   a New Orleans jazz and blues pianist, publisher, composer, agent, record producer, and vocalist copyrighted the song, but he didn't wrote it.   "My Bucket's Got A Hole In It" is actually an old jazz novelty which was already played in the 1900s by Charles Joseph "Buddy" Bolden, a New Orleans black cornetist (1877-1931).
For more info about the story of the song, see Larry Birnbaum, "Before Elvis: The Prehistory of Rock 'n' Roll".

Dick Warren had several songs released by the Cincinnati's Rite Records subsidiaries Gateway and Big 4 Hits between 1954 and 1958.  [source :]
