At the age of 14, he ran off from boarding school, joined the crew of a whaling ship and spent nearly a decade at sea. When the California Gold Rush struck in , Pierpont left his wife and children behind in Massachusetts while he chased riches in the West.

That original version featured the sophisticated arrangements of the late, great Axel Stordahl. Former church organist Pierpont was a controversial, disreputable figure. Shortly before writing the song, he had become a widower. He abandoned his two children in Boston to move to Savannah, Georgia, where he fathered several more children with a second wife. He later joined the 1st Georgia Cavalry in the Civil War, penning songs in support of Confederacy soldiers fighting to defend slavery. Despite its strange origins, the song has become a global favourite. His 50s version was arranged by Gordon Jenkins, with a brilliant orchestra conducted by Nelson Riddle.

This is disputed by Hamill's research , which found Pierpont couldn't have written the song in because he was chasing cash in California during the Gold Rush.
