Recorded by Patsy Cline February 12 1962

In the late fall of 1956, Patsy Cline auditioned for Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts in New York City, and was accepted to sing on the CBS-TV show on January 21, 1957. Godfrey's "discovery" of Cline was typical. Her scout, actually her mother, presented Patsy who initially was supposed to sing "A Poor Man's Roses (Or a Rich Man's Gold)", but the show's producers insisted she sing her recent release of "Walkin' After Midnight" instead. Though heralded as a country song, recorded in Nashville, Godfrey's staff insisted that Cline not wear one of her mother's hand-crafted cowgirl outfits but appear in a cocktail dress.

The audience's enthusiastic ovations stopped the meter at its apex, winning the competition for her in the process and as a result, she was invited to return. After the Godfrey show, listeners had begun calling up their local radio stations to request the song, so she released it as a single. Although Cline had been performing for almost a decade and had already appeared on national TV three times by then, Godfrey was largely responsible for making her a star.
