This is one of my favorite songs, written and sung by Stuart Hamblen. The first version was a published in 1954.
In this next version, Mr. Hamblen tells the story of what led him to write the song and the message he wanted to share. It also includes his first recording of the song which was not released.
Rosemary Clooney’s version of Hamblen’s song became a #1 hit in the U.S. and the U.K. in 1954.
