"Fallin' Again" is the title of 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 guitar solo that lasts over three minutes.
- A much shorter version, which omits the first instrumental passage and bridge, plus a fade-out seconds after the final refrain, is included on vinyl and cassette pressings of the album. This version runs at 3:58.
- The single version, which also runs 3:58 but edited differently from the full-length version (with the exception of the fade-out after the final refrain). Half of the intro is excised; the line "I fall in and again" is deleted from each refrain; and one bar of the first bridge is deleted. This version appears on many of the band's compilation albums, including Greatest Hits Vol. II and For the Record.
"Fallin' Again" is the most heavily edited single release in Alabama's catalog.
