Sing Me Back Home - Merle Haggard


Skip A Rope - Henson Cargill




Take Me To Your World - Tammy Wynette

(KILL, KILL, KILL!!)



D-I-V-O-R-C-E - Tammy Wynette

Mama Tried - Merle Haggard



Harper Valley PTA - Jeannie C. Riley (writ' by Tom T. Hall - a camp classic)

Wichita Lineman - Glen Campbell



By The Time I Get To Phoenix - Glen Campbell


Big Girls Don't Cry - Lynn Anderson

I guess, from this list, it appears that 1968 was the year of MERLE HAGGARD, Tammy Wynette, Porter & Dolly, Lynn Anderson, Loretta Lynn, Glen Campbell , and, of course, George Strait (ha ha - I'm just kidding on that one).
