There was no bigger fan of Tennessee Ernie Ford than my dad, so that means I heard a lot of his songs while I was growing up. I still like them, too. 16 TONS was his big hit, of course, but I think a song like this really does a better job of showcasing that magnificent voice. One of the best pure singers ever, as far as I'm concerned.
