Not much information known about this cut. I've had it on cassette for years and doing an search over the net it did appear on a comp LP called "It's Finkin' Time!" in 1991. The original poem was written by Lois Blanchard Eades and the recording best known is by Red Sovine.

The music cues used on this track are Alfred Newmann's score for the 20th Century Fox production of "The Robe" (1953).

Oh yeah! Fab version of that track, nice job with the choirs and kettle drums. But I have to dispute your claim about Red Sovine; country music star Porter Wagoner's somber recitation was a regular feature of his weekly syndicated TV show (1960-1980). Just about made this heathen forsake his wicked ways... well, almost.
