"If I Kiss You (Will You Go Away)" is the name of a popular 1967 song by country singer Lynn Anderson.

Summary[edit]

"If I Kiss You" became Anderson's first top-ten single, paving the way for eight number ones and 18 top tens to come. Anderson's first single "Ride, Ride, Ride", also released in 1967, made the Country Top 40. "If I Kiss You (Will You Go Away)" reached the Top 5 on the Country chart. The song was written by her mother, legendary country music singer-songwriter, Liz Anderson.

Lynn Anderson performed "If I Kiss You" on the Lawrence Welk Show, with Kimmosato, where she was a regular during the 1967 - 1968 season. "If I Kiss You" was followed up by a couple other quirky country numbers that became hits, like "That's a No No", "Big Girls Don't Cry", (not to be confused with the song "Big Girls Don't Cry" by Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons) and "Flattery Will Get You Everywhere", all hits for her in the late 1960s.
