On the Other Hand
“While we are free to choose our actions, we are not free
Stephen R. Covey
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I don't think we've used a good ol' country song lately; on the other hand, I could be wrong.....
BONUS - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJgV-TGkFeU - On the Other Hand - Randy Travis, 1985
|"On the Other Hand" is a country music song written by Paul Overstreet and Don Schlitz. First recorded by Keith Whitley on his 1985 album L.A. to Miami, it was later released by Randy Travis as the lead-off single to his album Storms of Life, and it peaked at #67 in the United States. However, it was re-released in April 1986 after the song "1982" peaked, and the re-release was his first number-one hit in both the United States and Canada.|
