Well it took him ten years to write the song, and i believe he wrote it on the back of a hotel slip. His agent, or manager phoned him at the hotel and said, " i got a song title for you . I'll give you the title , but you have to write the song." So i'm not a hundred percent sure, but that is originally how it came about. Ten years later, Mr Kristofferson wrote the song, as at last he was inspired to write something he had done often……Write songs of beauty. Kris may tell the true story of his account, but that's all i know. It was worth the wait. Godbless the gentleman. Tony Cash
