The "other" woman Faron is singing about was Hilda Margo Macon, while the "other" man Marge is singing about was Shelby Singleton. Both marriages ended in divorce, making this song seem more apt.
Ok, I made most of that up. All in fun!

Smokey Rogers, for his many years playing in the California's Western swing scene, is best known for penning the classic ballad "Gone". The song went nowhere when Ferlin Husky first recorded it in 1952, but when Husky re-recorded Gone in 1956, it went straight to the top of the country charts, where it stayed for eight weeks and even crossed over to the pop charts. Rogers also co-wrote Spanish Fandango with Western swing king Bob Wills, which was released in 1947. In 1949, Rogers had a modest hit with "A little bird told me." Beginning in 1949, Rogers appeared in some of Universal's pre-music video "musical featurettes" along with Tex Williams. Rogers worked for years with Williams, as he also did with Spade Cooley. Never camera shy, Rogers hosted his own TV show in San Diego in the 1950s. ~ Ron DePasquale, All Music Guide

This is the b-side to the biggest hit of Jimmy's career, A Million To One, in 1960. The a- side is bit slow for me, but turn over the record and things pick up a little. And the backup singers agree with me - "Wow, that music's really great!"
I apologize for the poor quality of my record. That's why it was only a quarter. If you want a cleaned-up version, you can buy it on iTunes. It is mislabeled as "Hop scotch Polka". This ain't no polka man!

I sure appreciate it when labels put which is the A side/B side. It makes things much easier for us bloggers. I also like it when you see a radio station copy that says "Plug side". However they never write anything about what to do with the other side. Here's a few suggestions:
-We didn't really think this one was good enough for an album
-You could play this side too if you have time
-The song you didn't pay for
-We didn't really want the artist to record this one, but they insisted

This is the last of my Todd records. Hope to get more in the future. A cover of a song Red Foley did. Foley didn't have the backup singers on his take that this 45rpm does. It really adds to it, I think. Almost sounds like piglets singing, doesn't it?
And the b-side is just as interesting with another "I'm-a-cowboy-who-hates-using-his-gun-to-get-work-done" song.
