When Bill Monroe, "The Father of Bluegrass" wrote this song in 1946 it was a slow waltz. Then in 1954 a young Rockabilly artist recorded it as the B side of his first single: "That's All Right" in 4/4 time. It reached No. 6 in the Memphis Market and Elvis Presley was on his way to become "The King of Rock and Roll"! Either way its a good song.
