Sleepy Sunday, Vol. 7

Here’s a little something to jump start your Sleepy day.

It’s a rocking cover of a tune written by Wayne Raney, an Arkansas singer who had a Top 15 hit with it in 1948. Some sources credit Raney as the sole writer; others say Mac Luna co-wrote it.

In any case, it’s also been covered by the Delmore Brothers, with whom Raney performed after World War II before he went solo, and Narvel Felts, a Missouri singer who started out in rockabilly, then went country.

The great Sleepy LaBeef recorded this on July 3, 1979, at Singleton Sound Studio in Nashville.
