Whispering Jack Smith, A Faded Photograph, by Charles Kenny; Nick Kenny; Richard Howard; Whispering Jack Smith; September 13, 1940

It’s only a faded photograph
A tintype of long ago
I know it’s old fashioned
But please don’t laugh
I love that picture so

If I just could hear that voice again
Oh gee, would I feel so glad
For the face in that faded photograph
Is the best pal that I ever had

If I just could hear that voice again
Oh gee would I feel so glad
For the face in that faded photograph
Is the best pal that I ever had.
