A great song that was a bit of a departure from the normal style Johnny was recording at the time. Almost a cross between doo-wop, country and a barbershop quartet; this song became Johnny's fourth number one hit on the country charts. It also went on to become the 10 billionth download for iTunes in 2010.

The Folsom Prison Gang released a cover of this song on our "Cash Only" CD that was released in 2011.
