Released in album form on Bear Family BFX 15110, _ Rompin', Stompin', Singin', Swingin’_, 12-inch 33 1/3-rpm LP vinyl record, 1983. The song also appeared on a CD with very limited distribution, in “The Chronological Classics” series, as Warped Records 4701, 2011, displaying the title _Spade Cooley and His Band, 1947_. The song was originally written by Ike Cargill, an Oklahoma singer-songwriter who recorded some of his own songs in the late 1930s. The original copyright of “All Aboard for Oklahoma” was registered to him alone in 1947, and renewed in his name in 1974. Spade Cooley arranged the song for his Western Swing band, and added his name as co-writer on the record, the sheet music, and the BMI repertoire registry. I don’t know if Ike Cargill’s copyright is still valid. If it is, I hope that his heirs have no objection to this YouTube presentation of the song.
