One of Mother’s albums that I loved was “The Original Gene Autry Sings: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”. I believe the album was released in 1957 but the single for “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” was released in September of 1949. The album contains twelve Christmas songs by “the Singing Cowboy” Gene Autry.
Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus, right down Santa Claus Lane
He’s got a bag that’s filled with toys for boys and girls again
Hear those sleigh bells jingle jangle, oh what a beautiful sight
So jump in bed and cover your head, ’cause Santa Claus comes tonight
