No, it isn't the official state song. But it is surely the most played song about Indiana, trouncing that little green apples mess. In fact, it is probably the most played jazz tune about a with the name of a state in the title. This is the month of May, but unfortunately nobody will be singing this song at the track this month. So it is up to us to represent.
Not much to say about a song everybody knows so well. It is often played in Ab, but most fake books have it in F, which is what we are doing here.
One really minor piece of trivia. Almost everybody plays the second note wrong. As originally written, the second note is the 6th or D, but almost everybody plays it as an F. Certainly this goes back as far as Louis Armstrong and maybe even before him. So if you want to play the second note as an F, you are in good company.
In this arrangement I've borrowed some of the changes from Frank Mantooth and David Baker, which I think are a little more interesting than the normal fake sheet changes.
