There IS a soundtrack version, but not issued for sale..an abbreviated version 
of the song is on the 16-inch "Air Trailer" transcription issued to radio 
stations. As well, Paramount often sent 78s of songs from current pictures out 
for promotional purposes. I don't know if Road to Morocco might have been one 
of them.

> A lot of Paramounts from the 1940s were in production many months before they were actually released--e.g. LADY IN THE DARK, shot from December 1942-March 1943, not released until February 1944; BLUE SKIES, filmed from July-September 1945, not released until October 1946, etc. and so forth.
