"(I Can't Help You) I'm Falling Too" is a song written by Hal Blair, Skeeter Davis, and Don Robertson. In 1960, Skeeter Davis recorded and released the song as a single for RCA Victor. It was an answer song to Hank Locklin's major country pop crossover hit entitled, "Please Help Me, I'm Falling". It was Davis' second answer song in response to a Locklin tune.

"(I Can't Help You) I'm Falling Too" was recorded on May 13, 1960 at the RCA Victor Studio in Nashville, Tennessee, United States.[1] The song was released as a single in July of 1960, and it peaked at number two on the Billboard Magazine Hot C&W Sides chart later and number thirty nine on the Billboard Hot 100. The single became Davis' highest-charting single to that point and her fourth solo hit. It also became her first single to chart on the Hot 100. In the later months, the song was issued onto Davis' second studio album entitled, Here's the Answer.[2]
