About I'll Get By

"I'll Get By (As Long as I Have You)" is a popular song with music by Fred E. Ahlert and lyrics by Roy Turk. It was published in 1928 and popular versions in 1929 were by Ruth Etting, Nick Lucas and by Aileen Stanley. 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. A version by the King Sisters also charted in 1944 with a peak position of No. 12. The song was included in Variety's "10 Best Sellers on Coin-Machines" for the week of June 21, 1944. The song was also included on The Lucky Strike Parade's Top Ten for 1944. A 1944 Billboard poll found that "I'll Get By" was the third most sold sheet music among GIs stationed in training camps and in Europe.
