Some of the top hits from 1968 were:

Sing Me Back Home - Merle Haggard

Skip A Rope - Henson Cargill

Take Me To Your World - Tammy Wynette

Fist City - Loretta Lynn

The Legend Of Bonnie & Clyde - Merle Haggard

Honey - Bobby Goldsboro

(Without a doubt, one of the WORST songs EVER. Click on this video if you want to puke - sorry, I just hate this song.)

She wrecked the car

And she was sad

And so afraid

That I'd be mad

But what the heck


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

Folsom Prison Blues - Johnny Cash

Mama Tried - Merle Haggard

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

I Walk Alone - Marty Robbins

Stand By Your Man - Tammy Wynette

Wichita Lineman - Glen Campbell

By The Time I Get To Phoenix - Glen Campbell

Big Girls Don't Cry - Lynn Anderson

The Easy Part's Over - Charley Pride

Flattery Will Get You Everywhere - Lynn Anderson

The Last Thing On My Mind - Porter Wagoner & Dolly Parton

Promises Promises - Lynn Anderson

We'll Get Ahead Someday - Porter
Wagoner & Dolly Parton

Wild Weekend - Bill Anderson

Your Squaw Is On The Warpath - Loretta Lynn

Gee, was 1968 a banner year for country music, or what? Some of these songs are what you'd call CLASSICS.

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).
