The OED’s Word of The Day turned up the Americanism Doggone (possibly an euphemism for God damn it)


which reminded me of the excellent [wikipop]Donna Hightower[/wikipop] backed by [wikipop search=”The_Cadets_(doo_wop)”]The Jacks[/wikipop] (or The Cadets when they recorded for [wikipop]Modern Records[/wikipop]) record Doggone It (1955 [wikipop search=”RPM_Records_(USA)”]RPM[/wikipop] 423).
