(vocal: Frankie Lester); ......... and others. As sung by Annette Hanshaw as a single in 1926 Also released in 2009 on 'Annette Hanshaw I've Got A Feeling I'm Falling' You will find my past not spotless If you care to delve Twenty broken hearts and not less Before I was twelve. But from it all I've stopped From the parade I dropped Hope the future loves I've started To shelve. But... There goes the boy I dreamed all through school about There goes the boy I'll now be a fool about Ring down the curtain, I'm certain at present My future just passed. Don't even know if he has been spoken for If he is tied, the ties must be broken For life can't be that way, to wake me then break me My future just passed. Stars in the blue, tho' you're at a distance You can at least do this Sometimes a girl encounters resistance Help me to win this boy. Here are my arms, may he find illusion there Look in my heart, there is no confusion there Now that I'm loving, I'm living at last My future just passed. He is my faith, with capital F in it Now in my dreams, there'll be someone definite Ring down the curtain, I'm certain at present My future just passed. Don't even know if he has been spoken for If he is tied, the ties must be broken For life can't be that way, to wake me then break me My future just passed. (bridge) Here are my arms, may he find illusion there Kiss my two lips, remove all the rouge on there Now that I'm loving, I'm living at last There goes my future, the boy that just passed. That's all! Notes: < MY FUTURE JUST PASSED > was included in the soundtrack from the 1930 Paramount musical 'Safety In Numbers'. Director Victor Schertzinger Leads: Charles Buddy Rogers / Kathryn Crawford / Josephine Dunn / Carole Lombard (Catherine) Annette Hanshaw, an American, was a blues and jazz singer from the 1920s and early 1930s and was purportedly one of the first female jazz singers of that era. She was known as 'The Personality Girl' or later as the 'The Flapper Girl' by her followers and fit the 1920s period perfectly with her flapper style and sweet innocent-sounding voice. She often ended her songs with the cute tag "That's All". See MY BLACKBIRDS ARE BLUEBIRDS NOW or THE ONE IN THE WORLD or LOVABLE & SWEET as other examples. Some consider the later Hanshaw, a 'torch singer' along with the likes of Ruth Etting, Mildred Bailey, Jane Froman and Bebe Daniels. Strangely, she thought her abilities 'wanting' by her own standards and retired early to married life, after only 15 years in the business. (Transcribed by David Story- April 2014)
