This was written by Conway Twitty with his drummer Jack Nance between sets at the Flamingo Lounge, Hamilton.
Conway Twitty was US singer Harold Lloyd Jenkins. He changed his name in 1957 upon signing with Sun Records (although nothing was released) and the next year he switched to MGM with whom he recorded this. He changed his musical style to country in 1965 and scored 41 chart toppers on the Country charts before dying from cardiac arrest in 1993.
In 1970, Glen Campbell's cover reached #10 in the US and #4 in Britain. UK singer Billy Fury also reached #10 with this in the UK in 1964. (thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England, for all above)
