About Broadway


The song was written in the 40s by Bill Byrd, Teddy McRae and Henri Woode. It's played in the Key of G, with 4/4 time signature and steady beat. Lots of accent marks on the chords. From the album,
Only Trust Your Heart, Diana plays beautifully on the keys, some gorgeous sounding tones..

Out of town, I'm low down
