Another Woman

Album: T.G. Sheppard (1975)
  • This song from T.G. Sheppard's debut album was written by Dan Penn and Buzz Cason, who typically wrote in the pop realm, but went country for this one (the song made #14 on the Country chart). Cason is best known for writing "Everlasting Love"; Penn's songs include "The Letter" and "I'm Your Puppet."
  • In this song Sheppard sings about trying to get over his heartbreak, and finds himself in a bar telling his story to a lady he meets. She lets him know that the only cure for his particular condition is another woman - presumably her.

    In our interview with the song's co-writer Buzz Cason, he said: "I was breaking up with a girl at the time and I came down to the office and I said, 'Well, there's only one thing to get over a woman and that's another woman.' I think we wrote it in one night."
