"Fallin' Again" is a song written Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry and Greg Fowler, and recorded by American country music group Alabama. It was released in March 1988 as the third and final single from their album Just Us. It was a number-one hit in both the United States and Canada.
Single and album versions
Three versions of "Fallin' Again" exist:
- The full-length version, included exclusively on CD pressings of Just Us, which clocks at 7:41 and closes with a jam session that lasts over three minutes.
- A much shorter version, included on LP and cassette pressings of the album, runs at 3:58. Half of the intro is excised; the line "I fall in and again" is deleted from each refrain; one bar of the first bridge is deleted; and a fadeout a few seconds after the final refrain. This version appears on many of the band's compilation albums, including Greatest Hits Vol. II and For the Record.
- The single version, which runs at 3:33 and edited differently from the full-length version (with the exception of the fade-out after the final refrain). This version omits the first instrumental passage and bridge. This version has never been made available on CD.
"Fallin' Again" is the most heavily edited single release in Alabama's catalog.
