"I'm a One-Woman Man" is a song co-written by American country music artist Johnny Horton and Tillman Franks. It was originally released as a single by Horton in 1956, whose version peaked at number 7 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart.[1] The song was later covered by American country music artist George Jones, retitled "I'm a One Woman Man." Jones' version was released in November 1988 as the first single from his album One Woman Man. It peaked at number 5 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart [2] in early 1989 and it would be his final Top 10 solo hit. His final appearance on the Top-10 country singles chart arrived a year later as part of a duet recording with Randy Travis. Jones had cut "I'm a One Woman Man" early in his career when he recorded for Starday Records. In spite of the lack of radio hits as the 1990s dawned Jones remained a popular concert draw for the next 2 decades and continued to release original recordings into the mid 2000s.
