Wednesday's Song

I know full well it's still Tuesday for many of you, but what the hell -if I'm up early, why wait?.
Continuing the theme of songs for days of the week, here's a sweet little tune from some sixty years ago, although it's origins go back to at least 1927/8, when it was a hit for The Leake County Revelers, an (even then) old-time country string band.

The version I have for you is by 'Chet Atkins & His Guitar Pickers', or 'Chet Atkins & Billie Rose Atkins' , depending on which sleeve notes you believe... although that female voice sure sounds a lot like Helen Carter, but I'm no expert.
