A definite no. The original version was written by a friend of his called Sonny Curtis who joined the Crickets and released the first version after Buddy's death.

The song was later covered more famously by the Bobby Fuller Four and the Clash.

The Crickets version with Sonny Curtis (recorded months after Buddy's death) is often mistakenly credited to Buddy Holly and included on his greatest hits albums despite not featuring on the recording at all.

Why was buddy holly inspirational?

Buddy Holly is inspirational to me because he performed and wrote the kind of music he liked and wanted to write no matter what. He played with black musicians when it was uncommon at the time, especially in West Texas. He didn't try to change his image to look more "rock and roll" and wore his thick glasses to make himself stand out more as an individual. His songs were innovative, as was his band structure, going on to influence the setup that modern bands still use today. He was also one of the first rock and roll singer/songwriters.

Why is Buddy Holly so important to rock and roll history?

He was a pioneer, a trendsetter, and an inspiration. He was one of the first rock-n-rollers to write and produce his own music (though he often shared credit with his bandmates). His ordinary looks and quirky voice made younger musicians feel that if he could make it, they could too.
