Alabama state Governor "Big" Jim Folsom was first elected to office in January 1947, his four year term ending in January 1951. Folsom served a second term as Governor from 1955 to 1959. In 1962 he stood again, but was defeated in the primaries by George Wallace, who then went on to be elected as Governor. Prior to Folsom's run off against George Wallace Jack Cardwell recorded two campaign songs in 1962 for Folsom. The first was a single sided King Custom pressed disc on the LE NOIR label on which Cardwell was accompanied by Luke McDaniel and his band. Although the record label states that the recording is three minutes long, in reality the song only runs for one minute thirty six seconds. The second song was a commercial release issued on the Alabama CINEMA label, the flip side of this release was by Roland Johnson, who turns in a decent rendition of Arlie Duff's "Y'All Come".
