"I Care"

"I Care" is a song written and recorded by American country music artist Tom T. Hall. It was released in December 1974 as the only single from the album, Songs of Fox Hollow. "I Care" was Hall's seventh number one on the U.S. country singles chart. The single had a one-week stay at number one and remained on the chart for a total of ten weeks.[1]


The B-side of the single "I Care" was "Sneaky Snake," which charted as a tag-along flip side due to airplay.

"Sneaky Snake" is a novelty song about an anthropomorphic snake who likes sneaking up on people and stealing their root beer. After omnisciently observing how Sneaky Snake "goes dancin', wigglin' and a-hissin'/Sneaky Snake goes dancin', gigglin' and a-kissin'," the singer states how he doesn't like him because he laughs, due to moving through the grass and "tickin' his underneath."
