Many thanks to our correspondant for this corrected information:

I have loved that song for 50 years or more and had lost the words.  I am 86. May I suggest...I  believe Mr.Lister's name is spelled HOVIE LISTER, NOT Hobie.

I met Mr.  Lister at V.O. Stamps Singing School in Dallas, TX when I was 11 years old and enjoyed his piano playing for years.  I'll double check on this for you.  THE GAITHER SINGERS WOULD KNOW FOR SURE.
Thanks again. MRS. OLA F. "OLIE" HEFLIN
