Subject: RE: Folk Songs That Hit the Charts as Pop Songs
Bert you are quite correct but he was singing a number of them before he had a "POP" hit with that song which was his first success.

I should also have mentioned Guy Mitchell's "Dark and a Roving Eye". I believe the song from which it was lifted was The Fire Ship. Correct me if I am wrong, I'm sure somebody will.
