“Cincinnati” appears to be the B-side of a Decca 78 that was recorded by Martha Davis & Her Torrid Trio on December 9, 1947 in Hollywood, USA:
Martha Davis not only sang well but played the piano masterfully, as demonstrated on this classic clip for “Martha’s Boogie.”
“Cincinnati” was written by songwriting duo, Jay Livingston (music) & Ray Evans (lyrics) – a musical partnership known for its work in film, as well as TV – including the themes to “Mr. Ed” and “Bonanza”.
It ain’t south, it ain’t north; but it’s my July Fourth;
It’s a joy, it’s a whirl; for a boy and a girl;
I mean Cincinnati, that everloving town;
Cincinnati, Ohio – that’s the city for my door;
It ain’t east, it ain’t west; but it treats you the best;
It ain’t high, it ain’t low; but, oh my, what a show;
I’ll get there by plane, train, caboose, or canoe;
Cincinnati – coming home to you;
I left my heart on the old Ohio – and there it waits for me;
Get out that firehouse band and shout all over the land –
Here I come a-humming right home to you.
