Alla En El Rancho Grande (1926) / El Rancho Grande (1934) / (Give Me) My Ranch (1938) / El Rancho Rock (1958) / Auf Meiner Ranch Bin Ich König (1962) / Ik Heb Een Truck Als Mijn Woning (1981)



http://www.originals.be/en/originals.php?id=7442

There's some doubt about who actually wrote the song.
Fact is Silvano Ramos is mentioned as the composer of the earliest recorded version in 1926.

Emilio Donato Uranga (music) and Juan (Díez) del Moral (Spanish lyrics) were mentioned on a 1927 recording.

And even John and Alan Lomax were part of a lawsuit regarding this song.

http://thediscography.org/discoDbDetail.php?req=875

John and Alan Lomax included this song in their 1934 book "American Ballads and Folk Songs".

http://www.traditionalmusic.co.uk/american-ballads-and-folk-songs/american-ballads-&-folk-songs%20-%200461.htm

Before Lomax in 1934 the song was mentioned in 1931 by Joaquin Moro on page 119 of "Songs the Vaqueros Sing" in Volume IX of 'Southwestern Lore' by James Frank Dobie.  Published for the Texas folk-lore society, 1931.

But as I said the song was already recorded in 1926:

You Must Come In At The Door (1923) / So High (1926) / High, Low and Wide (1947) / So High, So Low (1959)


http://www.originals.be/nl/originals.php?id=9746

The spiritual "You Must Come In At The Door" is found in the book: "Fifty-eight Spirituals for Choral Use" written by HW Loomis and edited by Hollis Dann.
Published in 1924 by C. Birchard Co in Boston
The title in this book is "Open Door".

In 1930 the song was published in the book "Green Pastures Spirituals".
In this book the song was titled "My God Is So High", arranged by Hall Johnson.
His Choir also sings his spiritual settings in 1930 in the musical Green Pastures (popular Bible stories retold with an all Black cast) on Broadway.

These early choir books generally identify the number as "traditional", which would mean the song is much older.

Other versions are titled "Heaven So High", "My Lord Is So High" or "You Must Come In Through The Lamb".



The first recording of this traditional spiritual I could find is:

(o) Bethel Jubilee Quartet (1923)   (are in fact the Wiseman Quartet)
Rev. T. H. Wiseman
A. C. Brogdon
H. S. Allen
J. C. Eubanks
Recorded July 11, 1923 in Camden New Jersey.
Released on Victor 19119.

Closely related in tune to "Rock My Soul", which probably began as a negro spiritual, published as early as 1863 in Slave Songs of the United States.
