Paul Buskirk was the guitar teacher in Houston where Willie Nelson wrote songs for. Still under contract with D Records, where they disliked his song, Willie took it to this guitar teacher, gave him part of the credits for cutting it, sang it under alias Hugh Nelson and signed under alias Matthews. Meanwhile this song changed hands more than 30 million times.
