    The song as we know it now is not the song that Lefty Frizzell sang. Keith felt the song was too short for a single so he went back to Lefty’s co-writer, Sanger D “Whitey” Shafer, to have him write another verse. The verse Shafer came up with was fine, but I really do not think it was needed.

    My favorite version of the song remains Lefty’s recording for ABC

      I remember reading the story about the additional verse. Strangely, even after its addition, Whitley’s version was never released as a single.
