My mother was a teenager in the 1950's and living in Oklahoma. When I was a little girl and if I was ever sad my mom would sing to me. This was her song.
I try to sing it to my children when they are sad, but they just cover my mouth and tell me, "that is grandma's song."
Goodbye Clara Ann Fowler aka Miss Patti Page.
