Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: I Love You Because
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: I love you because
There is an open discussion on "the best love song".
On several similar threads in the past I voted for this one. Myself and others have posted the lyrics on threads but it dosen't seem to be in the DT. Joe, perhaps it should be considered.
Leon Payne himself can be heard singing this on The Record Lady. It has been recorded many times and was charted by several different country and pop stars. To my mind Leon himself does the best job though.
He was a star of the old Louisianna Hayride back in te 1940's- 50's . He wrote this for his wife Myrtie.
          Best regards,
