Real prisoners doing time at the Tennessee State Prison in Nashville when this recording took place at Sun in Memphis, handcuffed and at gunpoint. Writer Johnny Bragg got his royalties (including those on Johnny Ray's hit version) the day he came free. That's the same Johnny Bragg claiming he sold Hank Williams the idea for Your Cheating Heart.
