*Commonly (but inaccurately) known as "Back Home Again In Indiana," this tune was irrevocably tied to Herb Shriner, who hosted a TV quiz show called "Two for the Money" from 1952-57. As an Indiana native, Shriner adopted this tune as the show's theme song. The attribution to Louis Armstrong is, in truth, somewhat arbitrary; the song has been recorded more than 300 times, but since Armstrong's version(s) account for more than 30 of those, I felt he deserved some credit.
This chart was editted from one provided to me by a visitor, and I've modified it only mildly from what he sent me -- in a couple of cases, changing only the designation of the chord name, for example.
