    This song is part of a classic movie she made which they made a classic picture of her standing by a bar singing this song which i know people that think that was the only picture of her taken but their wrong & i also thought that it was the only picture of her ever taken until i saw the classic movie on TV & recorded the movie. The picture was taken from a stop frame from the movie which they could've made more pictures of her but that was the best one they picked & it sure was. It's about a man that leaves her for another women & she's standing by the bar singing this great song.

    Does anyone know if Flannery O'Connor's short story title stems from this?
