Program Notes

Way Down Yonder in New Orleans is a popular song with music by John Turner Layton Jr. and lyrics by Henry Creamer. First published in 1922, it was advertised by Creamer and Layton as A Southern Song, without A Mammy, A Mule, Or A Moon, a dig at some of the Tin Pan Alley clichés of the era.

It was performed at The Winter Garden Theater in New York in Act 2 of the Broadway musical production Spice of 1922.
