Included on the RLG Records CD 'Five Penny Nickel' a Tribute to Tompall & The Glaser Brothers. To purchase please visit our website.
Kris Kristofferson wrote and recorded the song in the early 1970’s. Tompall & the Glaser Brothers released their version in mid 1981 as a single. It spent sixteen weeks on the billboard country charts and peaked at #2, holding that position for two weeks. It was also the title track of their 1981 reunion album Lovin’ Her Was Easier on Elektra Records.
Our version is pretty much a copy of the Glaser Brothers because we have always felt theirs is the best arrangement of the song ever recorded. Gary D is singing the lead, Paul Robert is singing the high harmony and David is singing the low harmony. We are very proud to include this song on our album. You can purchase our CD on our website.
