I once thought that this song was originally a folk song by an African-American man complaining about the racial epithets hurled at him, but the earliest reference to it I have found is Leo Friedman's 1901 version with words attributed to Gene Jefferson, published by Sol Bloom and performed by Lew Dockstader (né George Clap) who appeared in blackface (as did Al Jolson, Eddie Cantor and Milton Berle at various times in their careers).

This arrangement was made from a later piano version which starts off with Friedman's other hit song, "My Girl from Dixie." According to the original publisher, it was the most popular tune of 1901.
