By Matthew Caulfield

Al Menashe mentions the  roll "Chong Who Comes  From  Hong Kong."
    That 1918 tune  by Harold Taylor Weeks may  have  that gentrified
    title on  its label, but  the actual title is  in pidgin English,
    for  the record: Chong (He  Come  From  Hon Kong).  One sometimes
    sees  Come "corrected" to  Came.  This  is  a common problem with
    tune title, that  they  suffer over-correction at  the  hands  of
    well-intended editors.
