You can play in the same key in GCEA tuning, if you put your capo on the 1st fret. Note: we've changed up the Brenda Lee version ever so slightly :)
Despite her mature-sounding voice, Lee recorded this song when she was only thirteen years old. In a 2006 interview with the Chicago Tribune, Lee explained that she recorded this in July with Nashville producer Owen Bradley. Said Lee: "Owen had the studio all freezing cold with the air conditioning, and he had a Christmas tree all set up to kind of get in the mood just a little bit. We had a lot of fun."
