YOU are a GIFT wrapped in
ribbons of thoughtfulness and
trimmed with kisses and smiles,
given by GOD to stay..
not just for a day but for LIFETIME. Thanks for posting this song. I always loved his clean, mellow tenor voice. And Ben you are so right by posting a lesser known song by him. Maybe you can follow up this post by a few more ...
Inge So nice to know that someone other than myself is familiar with Johnny's version of "A Thousand Miles Away."
I heard it in my hometown of Seattle in 1961 and ran right out to buy it. It didn't become a hit, though, and even after owning/operating a record store in Seattle for 21 years in the '70's-'90's, I never encountered anyone else who ever heard of it.
I loved that version just as much as I did the Heartbeats'--one of my Top 3 favorite songs of all time.
