I heard a homemade recording of the song played by someone on a 12-string from Boston (the player, not the guitar. Of course, the guitar might have been from Boston, too. Ah, but I digress, Gentle Reader) in 1958 and the recording was several years old. The unusual feature of the performance was that there was a rhythmic punctuation of the chorus with two smart slaps to the guitar body.
