This sweet and mournful country classic has been around since 1940 and has been recorded over 350 times, not to mention the countless times it's been sung at elementary school concerts.
I've always loved it and that adoration is just one more thing I share with Truman Capote. The others? I live in New York and am 5'2″. The song was made popular initially by Gene Autry and Bing Crosby, but I also enjoy the Johnny Cash version.
