Kenny Rogers and Dottie West released their version of the song in July 1979 as a soundtrack from their second album, Classics. This album was released after their hit album, Every Time Two Fools Collide became a major seller. Thus, their first album was one of the most popular duets ever made.

Upon its release, Classics ranked number three on the Top Country Albums charts and number 82 on the Billboard 200’s most played songs in the US. This album also sold millions of copies worldwide and became certified platinum by RIAA. Thus, it has accumulated 10 classical hits and two of those songs became a country hit.

About the Song

George Richey, one of the co-writers, had an idea of writing this song about what will happen to the person after divorce. By that time, Wynette had ended her marriage with George Jones. So, she related so much on this topic.

I’ll need time
To get you off my mind.
And I may sometimes bother you;
Try to be in touch with you;
Even ask too much of you from time to time.

After a heartbreak, all we want is a peace of mind. There is what we call a healing process before being happy again, but do you know who can take away all the pain we feel right now? It is the Lord. Every worries, disappointments, and heartache we feel right now will be overcome as long as we are with the Lord.
