“Don't Leave Me Mammy” Sheet Music

Description (Brief)
This sheet music for the song “Don't Leave Me Mammy" was written by Benny Davis and B. G. DeSylva and composed by Henry W. Santly and Con Conrad. The music was published by Remick and Co. of New York, New York in 1927. The cover features a photograph of Karyl Norman who called himself "The Creole Fashion Plate." Norman was an early vaudevillian who performed in drag, and called himself the “fashion plate” because the “template” sets the fashion trends and decides what is in vogue, and Norman wanted to be seen as trendy.
