* Willie Nelson's #1 country hit in 1978 was but the latest in a long series of successful

versions of this standard. Introduced in the 1927 musical "Betsy" by Belle Baker, it

reached the charts no less than six times that year -- by Ben Selvin (#1); George Olsen

(#2); Vincent Lopez (#9); Johnny Marvin and Ed Smalle (also #9); Harry Richman (# 13);

and Vaughn Deleath. It Charted in 1941 by Johnny Long (#22), then again in 1946 by

both Count Basie (#8) and Benny Goodman (#9).
