One of Ricky Nelson’s big hits, from 1958. I included two versions in this video, fingerstyle followed by a strumming example.
This was one of Ricky Nelson’s great songs and a #1 hit in 1961. The song was written by Jerry Fuller in 1959, who had hoped Sam Cooke would record it. Cooke wasn’t interested but Ricky’s bass player heard it and brought it to him, and he loved it.
