"It's Morning (And I Still Love You)" is a country music song written and recorded by American country artist, Jessi Colter. The song was released as a single December 8, 1975 on Capitol Records. It would become Colter's third consecutive hit single on the Billboard Country Chart, peaking in the Top 20 in 1976.

Content[edit]

"It's Morning (And I Still Love You)" was entirely written by Colter. The song describes the morning and after a One-night stand, and how a couple still is in love with each other when they wake up in the morning. Midway through the song, the female narrator explains how its lonely when one sees everything there is to see, which goes as follows:

Have you ever been at the end of a day
When you held the world, and you let it get away
It's lonely
Sittin' in the middle of your sky you see
Everything there is to see you babe
Everywhere there is to be,
It's lonely

The song was produced by Ken Mansfield and Waylon Jennings (a country music artist and Colter's husband), who also produced her two previous singles and the album that song was released on in 1976, Jessi. Both men would produce Colter's further Capitol releases during the decade.[1] The song would also be issued on Colter's 2003 compilation, The Very Best of Jessi Colter: An Outlaw...a Lady.

Chart performance[edit]

"It's Morning (And I Still Love You)" was released December 8, 1975, and made its country chart debut January 3, 1976. The song became major hit, reaching #11 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in 1976, becoming Colter's first Capitol single to not reach the Top 10 on the country chart.[1] In addition, it also peaked at #20 on the Canadian RPM country chart in 1976. The song was released on Colter's third studio album, Jessi in early 1976, which was also successful.[2] "It's Morning (And I Still Love You)" would become Colter's final major hit single as a solo recording artist, however, she would continue having success with duet hits with Jennings in the 1970s and early 80s.
