In 1958 when this song hit the top of the charts I was in sixth grade and there was this kid in my sunday school class who had just moved out west with his family from Tennessee and he told me he was Conway Twitty’s cousin. I can’t remember his name anymore, but the little second-story apartment his family lived in is still standing a few blocks from where I grew up. Years later one of the notable items on my CV, as far as one of my work colleagues was concerned, was that I had gone to sunday school with Conway Twitty’s cousin. “It’s only make believe.”
