Waterloo (Stonewall Jackson song)
"Waterloo" was a number-one hit for country singer Stonewall Jackson in 1959. Although it is credited to John D. Loudermilk and Marijohn Wilkin, the melody owes more than a little to "Leave It There" (also known as "Take Your Burden to the Lord"), a still-popular gospel hymn composed by Charles A. Tindley in 1916. The single was the most successful of Jackson's career, spending five weeks at number one on the U.S. country music chart. The B-side of "Waterloo", "Smoke Along the Track", reached number 24 on the country chart. "Waterloo" was also Jackson's only Top 40 hit, where it stayed on the chart for 16 weeks, peaking at number four on the Billboard Hot 100 pop chart.
