Yippy ya yeah, yippy ya yo…!
Sung by the great Burl Ives: “This is the first recording ever of this famous song in February 1949. Vaughn Monroe’s big baritone and orchestra version became a number one hit a month later, but it’s great to listen to Burl sing this much simpler version, just his clear tenor voice and strumming on a single instrument, probably a banjo.”
