If I remember right, that song was on a 45rpm record with "I Can Here Kentucky Calling Me" on the flip side. When Chet was promoting that single he said you don't have to be a good singer to have a hit record, just a catchy tune.

An interesting note is that Merle Travis wrote the lyrics Yakety Axe!
