Artist: Hank Williams
Author: Hank Williams
Label: MGM
Year: 1951

Slightly inspired by Cole Porter's 1942 song with the same title. Lyrics (with some cooking involved) inspired by the nature of his sponsor: Mother's Best cooking meal, backing his daily 15 minutes on WSM in Nashville, the radio station hosting the Grand Ole' Opry. That's where this song was first heard. Actually written for Little Jimmy Dickens but Hank decided to keep it.
