Songs Stormé Sang In Her Teens

These are the songs I could document Stormé singing in public before she left home. It's certainly only a partial list of what she was singing, but I love having it, so I'm sharing it with you.


As far as I know, there are no extant recordings of Stormé singing any of these songs, but you can listen to renditions by other artists on my youtube playlist here.
