Yep, that's the song I was referencing. But - Miller's version is a cover. Originally written and recorded by K.C. Douglas in 1948. Lots of covers out there, but my favorite is David Lindley's blistering kick-ass version. (Warning - do not play while driving unless you want to get a speeding ticket.)
