Artist: Johnny Faire
Author: John Marascalco
Label: Surf
Year: 1957

Apparently sold by Johnny Burnette to John Marascalco (for $50). May have been inspired by Dorsey's wife Alberta. Meanwhile the Burnette family regained rights on the song.

Covers:

1958:

Clint Miller [hit US]

1966:

Dorsey Burnette

1982:

Rocky Burnette [Johnny's son]

1982:

Tav Falco's Panther Burns

1985:

Meteors

1997:

Robert Gordon & Chris Spedding

Burnette brothers versions were shelved for contractual reasons. Johnny Faire's vocal sits right upon Dorsey's. Many rockabilly variations circulate (as Twinkie Lee, Snacky Poo, ...).
