Thank you! I'm glad there are others that knew of the song and the movie BEFORE Reba recorded her cover of it. Heck, I don't think she did a version of it until the early 90's-late 80's at the earliest.
AND....if I am not mistaken, didn't Vickie Lawrence's hubby at the time write it?
Yes, then he left her IIRC.
I have the Vicki Lawrence version on a 45, still in good shape.
I also have the soundtrack to this movie, (LP), also still in good shape.
... And Remember, Let's Be Careful Out there.
Hill Street Blues
I have the Vicki Lawrence single as well, still in good shape.
I also have the soundtrack LP in good shape.
In fact, both single and LP are in a lot better shape than I am these days!
