"Milky White Way"
Song by Landers Coleman

"Milky White Way" is a gospel standard written by Landers Coleman, who was a quartet singer. It was later recorded by Elvis Presley. The song became a million-selling hit record in 1947 when the CBS Trumpeteers, a black quartet from Baltimore, recorded it. In the late 1940s the CBS Trumpeteers had a popular morning radio show over the CBS network called 7:15 A.M.! and "Milky White Way" was their theme song. Elvis Presley copied the Trumpeters' arrangement practically note for note when he recorded his version of the song on October 30–31, 1960 at RCA's Studio B, Nashville TN.[1]
