"I was in the hospital for some minor ailment. We had an argument. He and the children had come to visit me and brought me the first fur coat I ever owned. During the entire visit I spoke to the children, but I didn't speak to Hank. On his way home he told our housekeeper, Audrey Ragland, 'She's got the coldest heart I've seen.' That same night he wrote this song. Among the 100 songs Hank Williams wrote, this song was his favorite." --- Audrey Williams
