GUEST,Captain Colin Lonnie Donegan (184* d) RE: Lonnie Donegan 10 Jan 07

I think Lonnie recorded the two versions just because he felt like it Scrump. I don't think the USA market was a consideration as the track was never intented as more than an album filler or b-side. In fact both versions were issued by Pye at that time in that manner, both for the UK market. The backing was just one acoustic guitar. The number was originally a hit in States for Ernest Tubb some years earlier though many other versions exist- eg it was rewitten with a rock & roll slant as "All American Boy" which was again a hit in the USA in the fifties and which Marty Wilde used to perform here.
