Your Cheatin' Heart
Written by Hank Williams
As preformed by Patsy on Aurthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts (1957)

On Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts (January 21, 1957), very
much against her will, Patsy was forced to sing a song she hated,
"Walkin' After Midnight." It wasn't country and Patsy didn't want
to sing a pop song.


What happened, was just unbelievable. Patsy sang her heart out.
Then there was an eternity of applause. "Patsy cried." People were
standing and yelling for more. Godfrey finally had to calm the
audience. He put his arm around her and said, "Congratulations,
Patsy. Something unbelievable has happened. For the first time
in our history, the applause has frozen the meters. "Little lady,
you sure know how to sing. Will you do another song for us?"
The audience went wild. Patsy got to do a country song after all,
the Hank Williams hit "Your Cheatin' Heart." And when she
finished, the audience went crazy again! It was one of the
most memorable occasions of Patsy's life!" Godfrey congratulated
Patsy once again,
"There's surely stardust on you, Patsy Cline!"
