Don’t Be Angry by Stonewall Jackson (1958)

The year was 1958 and some country music didn’t have that soft pretty sound, but Stonewall Jackson had the right mix with his beautiful 1958 hit “Don’t Be Angry”. The song still sounds great today. This is a beautiful love song with a pretty melody and simple chords.

Wade Jackson has been given credit as the songwriter, while others say Stonewall wrote the song long before we heard it on the radio. Wade is Stonewall’s brother, and I’m sure they both had a hand in creating “Don’t Be Angry”.

Here are the lyrics to Stonewall Jackson’s “Don’t Be Angry”

Don’t be angry with 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 here, forever by my side

Maybe someday you’re gonna hurt me I’ve been hurt in love 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 with 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
