Chet Atkins got fired four times because he "wasn't country" enough. His whole career was a series of musical experiments, which is why his music never got tired like that of many of his contemporaries. This recording is from 1959, thirty years after the song was written. If you've only heard the version from the sixties freak parade Tiny Tim, this will be a refreshing change. It certainly highlights Atkins' skills on the electric guitar.
