Though a proficient guitarist himself, the studio recording of the song featured Al Casey and Howard Roberts on guitars. It had been written solely by Reynolds, but Demon Records credited it to Reynolds and the fictitious "Dolores Nance", in order to make it appear to have been written by a 'professional' songwriting team.
The label persuaded a reluctant Reynolds to change the lyrics to give the song a happy ending. The song reached the 5 position on the U. Billboard Hot chart on July 7, , sold over one million copies, and inspired a trend of "teen tragedy" songs.
