Hi folks

It seems to me the most obvious explanation for this was talked about in John Goldrosen's terrific Biography of Buddy.

That short but inferior 3 word phrasing is pure Norman Petty, who I am surmising changed the lyric prior to submitting the song to (his own!) publishing company, as a way of justifying his bogus writing credit.

Changing a couple of words to more maudlin ones does not make N.P. a legitimate co-writer.
