Thanks only had a live version of this before

Great tune makes me sad for the Tennessee girl I never knew who never left me.

Looks like Dick cut this again for Aggie Records (also from the LA area).

In his first recording of the song, this one, the Billboard review was more positive "Miller does some high powered weepin' and wailin'on this waltz-styled plea for the ladys return (Jan 21, 1956) They were less favorably inclined towards his second attempt on Aggie calling it a "plainitive reading on wistful country ditty" (May 16th, 1960)

You can't go wrong with Dick Miller. All the 45's i heard by him are great.

My favorite being his single on SUNDOWN.
