A country track first recorded in 1939 which Johnny Cash then later covered in 1969 and it's now the version most people think of. It has also been covered by other big names such as Bing Crosby, Doris Day, Nat King Cole, Ray Charles, Tina Turner and Aretha Franklin to name just a few.

It's a lovely tune to play, and relatively simple so it's perfect for beginners as practice piece. I hope you enjoy playing the letter notes below :)
