dc.description.abstractBefore he began his successful recording career in 1927, Jimmie Rodgers held down gigs at resorts near Lauderdale Springs, Mississippi, and Asheville, North Carolina. His groups performed a wide variety of tunes at the resorts, including many of the songs emanating from New York’s Tin Pan Alley. They played "I’ll See You in My Dreams," "Doo Wacka Doo," "Who’s Sorry Now?," and other hits of the day. Group member Claude Grant recalled, "We would play just about everything, square dancing music and other dance numbers. When we played for dinner it would be popular music, some country music also." One of the tunes Rodgers played was "How Come You Do Me Like You Do?," written in 1924 by the popular vaudeville team of Gene Austin and Roy Bergere.en_US
