    I’m downloading this because of the song: “Smoke Smoke Smoke That Cigarette”. This Tex Williams version is not the one I’ve been looking for but it will do because I actually don’t know who does the version I want. I first heard the song shortly after my father died 15 years ago. It was a 78rpm record in his small collection and I was intrigued by the title. I used his very cheap 78rpm capable turntable and listened. I was taken by the lyrics as lung cancer was what had taken my father. I still have dad’s 78′s but they are in storage and I really don’t recall much about it except that it was a male vocal group popular before the end of the 78 era. Someday I’ll have to dig it out. Many thanks for this posting. It will be a fun listen I think.

      I discovered the song in the early 70s, via Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen. But, they were post-78s, and I’m not versed with the origins of the tune. You might try Wiki. Sometimes someone will spill an entire history of a subject over there.

    Wikipedia gives a concise history of the song::

    “Smoke! Smoke! Smoke! (That Cigarette)” is a Western swing novelty song written by Merle Travis and Tex Williams, for Williams and his talking blues style of singing. Travis wrote the bulk of the song. The original Williams version went to number one for sixteen, non-consecutive weeks on the Hot Country Songs chart. Recorded on March 27, 1947 at Radio Recorders in Hollywood, “Smoke! Smoke! Smoke! (That Cigarette)” was produced by Lee Gillette, and featured Deuce Spriggens, bass fiddle, harmony vocal; Larry “Pedro” DePaul, accordion; Johnny Weis, lead guitar; Cactus Soldi, Rex Call, Harry Sims, fiddler; Ossie Godson, piano; Spike Featherstone, harp; Earl “Joaquin” Murphey, steel guitar; Manny Klein, trumpet; Smokey Rogers, guitar, harmony vocal; Muddy Berry, drums.
    A cover version performed by Phil Harris stayed on the charts for 23 weeks, and became a number one hit in August 1947 and remained at the top of the chart for six weeks.
    Williams made a stereophonic re-recording of the song for Capitol in 1960 on the album, Smoke! Smoke! Smoke!.
    The song can be heard in the opening of the 2006 film, Thank You for Smoking, as well as in the 2011 video game, L.A. Noire, which was set in late 1940s Los Angeles. It has also been covered by Sammy Davis, Jr., Willie Nelson, Phil Harris, Jimmy Dean, Commander Cody, Asleep at the Wheel and others.
