Artist: Fats Domino
Author: Antoine Domino/Pee Wee Maddux/Jack Jessup
Label: Imperial
Year: 1961

In fact written by Jimmy Donley exclusively (see: Born To Be A Loser), inna Domino style while he was a fan. A bad drunk, always in need for some ready cash, Donley sold away his own compositions. Charles Jessup, one of the so-called coauthors, was a radio & TV evangelist with convincing power. He obtained Donley's present and future copyrights for a flat fee of $1.000 (What A Price indeed). Donley's demo is on Ace comp In The Key Of Heartbreak - The Complete Tear Drop Singles And More.
