Alabama Song (Whiskey Bar) - Doors
(*Written by Kurt Weill - 1927)

Wasn't it a poem by Bert Brecht made into a song by Kurt Weill?

That's what I thought, but wanting to be sure, I read 3 (online) biographies about Weill. Weill had collaborated with Brecht but found him boring and ended the working relationship. Because he moved to the US and embraced being an "American" - he wrote Alabama Song. (Or so the stories go...) It still may have been a Brecht poem, but no reference was made to it in either the Weill or Brecht bios. The song debuted at the Baden-Baden Music Fesival in 1927 so you may still be correct.

Isa wanders off to research it more after doing the townie thing...

That's just wrong on soooooo many levels!!! Thankfully, you didn't post the cat song or it would have needed editing - immediately.
