One version was included on the 2001 album, The Road Less Traveled. This is the version you probably know, because it became King George’s 38th No. 1 hit. You know, it starts “At first she’s gonna come on strong / Like She’ll love you all night long / Like it’s going out of style / Then she’ll leave you with a smile.” This song was written by Odie Blackmon and Jay Knowles.
Avid Strait fans were probably confused though when they heard it, because superstar recorded a song of the same name in 1997 on his Carrying Your Love With Me album. That song, though, was written by Jackson Leap and wasn’t released as a single.
Hear the two songs below to compare.
