Hi Rod – well this is one of my all time favorite songs – did you know that it is actually from a 1955 prison movie called “Unchained” – the verse is sung by a guy sitting on a prison cell bunk with his guitar – the B section isn’t sung in the movie – TCM runs it every now and then – the star was Elroy “Crazylegs” Hirsch who was a big football star in the early 50’s – Hy Zaret the composer, died recently – well, there’s your mini history lesson for the day –
