Song Notes: Here's a real old one from someone whom probably no one here knows. Henson Cargill was a local singer, who was trying to make it big in Nashville. He had a few singles and a few near-misses, but this one actually was a hit. A pretty big hit, in fact. And, also, his only hit. The thing with this one is that the song was actually written for Johnny Cash to sing—at the last moment, he decided not to cut it, and gave it to Henson Cargill, who did cut it, and went to No. 1 with it. If I recall, Henson Cargill's still performing the occasional show, so you can go see him! And you should—he did a fine job with this wonderful song. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
