According to the (If Loving You Is Wrong) I Don’t Want to Be Right Songfacts, Homer Banks, Ray Jackson and Carl Hampton wrote the song in the middle of the night sometime around 1970. The had the Stax girl-group The Emotions record the song, but their uptempo version didn’t work and the song sat on the shelf until the R&B singer Luther Ingram found the tape while visiting the studios. He took the tape and worked out a more mournful arrangement with a Gospel feel. Then he recorded the song at Muscle Shoals Sound Studios in Alabama, utilizing a Wurlitzer piano with an Echoplex unit and also a Hammond organ.
