Lale Andersen - Jonny

Lale Andersen (March 23, 1905 – August 29, 1972) was a German chanson singer-songwritera born in Bremerhaven, Germany. She is best known for her interpretation of the song "Lili Marleen" in 1939, which became tremendously popular on both sides during the second World War, and ultimately got her in trouble with the Nazi party.

This song, "Jonny", was way ahead of its time, as it sounds like a much later recording than it is. It's listed on the Internet Archive as being public domain. Anyone know more about this song?
