This was one of my favorite songs as a kid. It qualifies for the thread, I believe, because Merle Travis first recorded it in 1946, but this version
(1956) by Tennessee Ernie Ford is the one I knew. We used to sing it in the car on trips with the family. Do people even sing in the car anymore? If
not, they should.
The lady giving the introduction was the wonderful Dinah Shore.
