This week Jim Adams has prompted us with choosing songs pertaining to Fiance’| Husband | Lover | Wife for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday. This week I chose a Roger Miller song called “Husbands and Wives”.
Husbands and Wives is a mid-tempo waltz in the key of C major. It is about a couple who is breaking up. With both parties having too much pride in themselves to reconcile.
“Husbands and Wifes was written and first recorded by American country music singer Roger Miller. It was released in February 1966 and was a crossover hit, reaching # 10 on the U.S. country and Adult Contemporary charts. Reached the Top 40 on the pop charts as well.
Wayne Newton covered the song in 1968 where it reached #28 on the U.S. Adult Contemporary chart and #97 on Cash Box.
David Frizzell and Shelly West covered the song in 1981 as a duet. It reached the Top 20 on the country singles chart.
Brooks & Dunn covered the song on their 1998 album If You See Her, featuring lead vocals from Ronnie Dunn. It was the third single from this album, reaching the top of the country singles chart in December 1998. It was also their first Top 40 hit on the pop charts, peaking at #36 on the Billboards Hot 100. In addition, it peaked at #2 on the Canada Country Tracks.
Two broken hearts lonely looking like houses Where nobody lives Two people each having so much pride inside Neither side forgives The angry words spoken in haste Such a waste of two lives It's my belief pride is the chief cause in the decline Of the number of husbands and wives A woman and a man A man and a woman Some can and some can't and some can't Two broken hearts lonely looking houses Where nobody lives Two people each having so much pride inside Neither side forgives The angry words spoken in haste Such a waste of two lives It's my belief pride is the chief cause in the decline Of the number of husbands and wives It's my belief pride is the chief cause in the decline Of the number of husbands and wives Source: LyricFind Songwriters: Roger Miller Husbands and Wives lyrics © Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC
