Somehow or other, I thought of this song after church yesterday. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the actual version that was in my mind - it's not the songwriter's edition (I recall a more spare arrangement, and more baritone vocal, a la Ed Ames or Ray Price, Bob Goulet or even Francis Albert - but I couldn't find evidence that any of them recorded the song). The version in my head is well-phrased, some of it almost spoken (like Bill Shatner), then expanding into a full refrain.
I'm certain I must have this on vinyl somewhere (or maybe my folks do), but just can't seem to place the singer.
Wiki says Howard Keel recorded the song, but I can't seem to find a copy.
