This was written by the Country singer/songwriter John D. Loudermilk. Some years before The Casinos recorded it, Loudermilk tried to release his own version of it, which flopped. Later, Johnny Nash released a version, which also flopped.

Other artists who have covered this song were Eddy Arnold, William Bell, Perry Como, the Manhattans, Johnny Mathis, Neal McCoy, Daniel O'Donnell, Johnny Tillotson, and Andy Williams. (thanks, Jerro - New Alexandria, PA, for all above)
