Notes: ~ sung by Fuzzy Knight
in the 1936 drama "The Trail of the Lonesome
Pine" starring Henry Fonda and Fred MacMurray which
was the first outdoor film in full Technicolor. It was
the title song in the 1941 film "Twilight on the
Trail" starring William Boyd who later became known
as Hopalong Cassidy. Bing Crosby had a hit recording for
Decca which was a favorite of President Franklin D.
Roosevelt. A gift to the President, through Mrs.
Roosevelt, of Alter's manuscript and Crosby's record are
now part of the collection of the FDR Museum in Hyde
Park, New York. Perry Como performed this song on his
television show within a segment reserved for songs of
reflection which usually came at the end of the show. The
sentiment expressed within this song is very similar to
"When You Come to the End of the Day" which
also came to be an end of show theme and the title of Mr.
Como's next album following the recorded sessions for
"Saturday Night With Mr. C." These songs were
among the first full stereophonic recordings made by Mr.
C. in 1958.
