I'll Get By (As Long as I Have You)

Lyrics:Roy Turk
Music:Fred E. Ahlert

The song was publishe 1928.

It was published in 1928 and originally sung by Aileen Stanley.
The song was sung and recorded by Billie Holiday many times,
from the mid-1930s onwards.
It was sung by Irene Dunne in the movie A Guy Named Joe
with Spencer Tracy (MGM, 1943).
The song was revived to even greater success in 1944,
when the 1940 recording by Harry James (Dick Haymes vocal)
was re-released (during the 1942–44 musicians' strike,
which prevented recording of new material) (Billboard #1).
The Ink Spots' version featuring lead Tenor Bill Kenny
was also popular in 1944, reaching the retail top ten.

This old world was just as sad a place for me
As could be
I was lonely and blue
This old world then changed to paradise for me
Why? Because I met you
All the wealth and power I may never find
Still as long as I have you, dear; I won't mind

I'll get by
As long as I have you
Though there'll be rain
And darkness too
I'll not complain
I'll laugh it through

May come to me, that's true
But what care I
Say, I'll get by
As long as I have you
