Thread Name: ADD: I Remember Loving You(from Priscilla Herdman)
Subject: RE: Req:I remember loving you Utah P Priscilla Herdman
Trying to run down who actually wrote this song. I know Utah said it was misattributed to him but he didn't know who wrote it. I have seen it attributed to Sheb Wooley as the writer. He recorded it, but I often find on the internet that people attribute the song to the artist whose recording they hear, not realizing it may be a cover. It is on his album 'Warm and Wooley' and credited to him as the writer from what I can tell.
Can anyone confirm?
What sent me on this search was listening to John Prine's "Glory of True Love", realizing he 'stole the tune' and was about to post Prine's song to a music group and comment that the tune was not original, but was Utah's. Gonna hold off on posting that until I have a clearer idea of who did write and/or score "I Remember Loving You."
