I Never Has Seen Snow (m. Harold Arlen, w. Truman Capote and Harold Arlen) from the 1954 Broadway musical House of Flowers

From the Arlen biography at HaroldArlen.com:

Never having met each other, Arlen began work on the score with Capote while he was in Paris. The two actually wrote the show’s title song together over the phone. After three months of long-distance collaboration, Arlen and Capote finally met in New York in February 1954.It was not long after their first meeting that Harold became seriously ill with an ulcer. Arlen and Capote had completed three songs, House of Flowers, I Never Has Seen Snow, and A Sleepin’ Bee and had begun work on Two Ladies in de Shade of de Banana Tree when Harold was rushed to Doctor’s Hospital for surgery. Harold’s ulcer was bleeding terribly, which caused him to lose volumes of blood and required close to three dozen transfusions. Fortunately, Harold managed to hang on and even insisted upon having Capote visit the hospital so that they could continue to work on the show.

Harold Arlen sings, accompanying himself on piano — originally released in 1955 on the album The Music of Harold Arlen, Vol. 1, Walden Records 306; also included in the 1955 double album The Music of Harold Arlen, Walden Records 306 (Vol.1) & 307 (Vol.2)
