Icon Unknown Status.jpg Track 39: Breaux Freres - Home Sweet Home   Vocalion 2961-B; Recorded in San Antonio, Texas, 9.10.1934


No image of record label available. Neither Anthology booklet assigns authorship, nor does www.78discography.com.


Harry Smith's Anthology booklet calls this a "well known popular song".


According to the Where Dead Voices Gather blog, "'Home Sweet Home' was written in 1823 by Sir Henry Bishop and John Howard Payne, adapted from Payne's opera Clari, Maid of Milan." The lyrics of the original composition were in English.


Thus, the basic tune is public domain, but the copyright status of the (Cajun French) lyrics is unknown.
