taking a chance on love

Song of the Day: taking a chance on love, 1940, Vernon Duke, Ethel Waters, #177.

This song is from the musical “Little Cabin in the Sky”, the 1st all-black musical on Broadway. The movie is really cute, I greatly enjoyed it.

There is also a 1943 video of this song by Judy Garland & Johnny Mercer for the DoD. They do the 1st go-round, plus an original  go-round I suspect Mercer wrote for the occasion. Go-round === verse, verse, bridge, verse.
