YBQ has "The land that Time forgot" from E. R. Burroughs in 1924.

1903 _Bellingham [Wash.] Herald_  (Dec. 19) II 10: The Reveille, for
campaign purposes has rescued J. P. De Mattos from "the land that God
forgot," whither he had drifted since the failure of his re-election in

1910 C. J. Blanchard in _National Geographic Magazine_ (April) 277: "The
Land that God Forgot" ... [The Arizona desert] is the land some one called
"The Land that God Forgot."

I heard it in the '60s.
