  • Don't be angry at me darling if I fail to understand
    All your little whims and wishes all the time
    Just remember that I'm dumb I guess like any foolish man
    And my head stays sorta foggy cause you're mine

    Well I recall the first time that I flirted with you dear
    When I jokingly said come and be my bride
    Now that time has turned the pages it's the sweetest joke on earth
    That I have you near forever by my side

    Maybe someday you're gonna hurt me I've been hurting of before
    Only God can know and time alone will tell
    But in the mean time I'll keep loving you with all my heart and soul
    And pray God to let it last if it's his will

    So don't be angry... Writer/s: WADE JACKSON

  • Kev from Rogers, ArI don't remember this song, but I remember "Waterloo", which I heard as a young school kid on the radio as I was getting ready for school. "Waterloo" can be viewed on YouTube.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyHere's some obscure trivia:
    On June 18th 1815, the Duke of Wellington defeated Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo, the defeat ended Napoleon's rule as Emperor of France...
    Exactly 144 years later on June 18th, 1959 Stonewall Jackson's "Waterloo" was at #24 on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; just under a month later on July 13th, 1959 it would peak at #4 {for 3 weeks} and it stayed on the chart for 16 weeks...
    He had three other records make the Top 100 chart; "Igmoo (The Pride of South Central High)" {#95 in 1959}, "Mary Don't You Weep" {#41 in 1960}, and "Why I'm Walkin'" [#83 in 1960}...
    "Don't Be Angry" didn't make the Top 100 chart; but on November 8th, 1964 it peaked at #4 {for 1 week} on Billboard's Hot Country Singles chart...
    Mr. Jackson, and Stonewall is he real first name, will celebrate his 83rd birthday in five months on November 6th {2015}.
