Lyrics
 

Kris Kristofferson has been a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University, a short-story writer who was published in Atlantic Monthly, an Army helicopter pilot in Germany, and, most recently, a successful actor. But he very nearly failed at songwriting. For four years he tried to make it in Nashville, writing songs while barely scraping out a living for his family as a caretaker, ditch digger, and barman. When he finally hit the big time, in 1969, this was one of the songs that did it for him. Although Ray Price made a hit with the song, Kristofferson lived it the sad story of the slow dissolution of his marriage over those heartbreaking early Nashville years.
