25 Days Of Christmas-Day 9

Oh, I've got a fun one for you tonight. I almost didn't post this, because I found out it's on CD, but I'm going to do it anyway. I recorded this song from a scratchy old 45, so you're not going to mistake it for a copy from CD. In fact, after hearing it, you may be tempted to go out and get the CD. The next selection for my online CD, 25 Days Of Christmas is The Davis Sisters-The Christmas Boogie (RCA Victor 7" 45 rpm 47-5906). (For the curious, the flip side is Tomorrow I'll Cry.) I didn't realize until I was researching this song that Skeeter Davis was one of the Davis Sisters. Small world, isn't it. Anyhow, I'm sure you'll enjoy this country retelling of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas. I know I get a kick out of it every single time I hear it.
