Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
BONUS - Am I That Easy to Forget? - Jim Reeves
"Am I That Easy to Forget" is the title of a popular song written
country music singer Carl Belew and W.S. Stevenson and published in
1958. Belew recorded his song in Nashville on December 17, 1958, and
single in March 1959, where it reached number nine on the U.S.
country music chart. Other country music artists who have recorded
cover versions of the song include:
Skeeter Davis (#11 country, 1960);
Ernest Tubb (1960);
Gene Vincent (1966);
George Jones (1967);
Patti Page (1968);
Reeves (#12 country, 1973); and
Prairie Oyster (1991).
In 1960, singer and actress Debbie Reynolds recorded a version of "Am I That Easy to Forget" that reached number 25 on the U.S. pop chart. The highest charting version of the song on the U.S. pop chart was recorded by singer Engelbert Humperdinck on August 11, 1967. Released as a single in late 1967 from his album The Last Waltz, it reached number 18 on the Hot 100 and number one on the Easy Listening chart in early 1968. Humperdinck's version was also a big hit in England, where it spent two weeks at number three on the UK Singles Chart, as well as in Ireland, where it spent three weeks at number one on the Irish Singles Chart. Humperdinck himself recorded a special version for Italy, in the local language, entitled "Dimenticarti non potrei" ("I couldn't forget you").

Am I That Easy to Forget
Words and Music by Carl Belew and W.S. Stevenson, 1958
Recorded by Jim Reeves, 1973
They say you've found somebody new,
But that won't stop my loving you.
I just can't let you walk away,
Forget the love I had for you.
Guess I could find somebody, too,
But I don't want no one but you.
How could you leave without regret?
Am I that easy to forget?
Before you leave be sure you find
You want your new love much more than mine.
'Cause I'll just say we've never met,
If I'm that easy to forget?
If I'm that easy to forget?
