I'm a People is an album by American country music artist George Jones. It was released in 1966 on the Musicor Records label. The album hit number one on the country chart. George Bedard of AllMusic writes, "One of the more consistent Musicor offerings, it features a good mix of uptempo honky tonk and novelty ("I'm a People," "Ship of Love, " and "Blindfold of Love"), ballads (the eerie "The Lonely Know My Secret"), and sacred songs ("If You Believe" and "Old Brush Arbors"). "Four-O-Thirty Three" and the title track were both top ten country hits. I'm A People also includes the "World Of Forgotten People" written by fellow country star Loretta Lynn. In his essay for the 1994 Sony compilation The Essential George Jones: The Spirit of Country, Rich Kienzle observes that the Dallad Frazier-penned title track contains an arrangement "clearly designed to imitate Roger Miller's hit novelties. George even attempted to scat-sing as Miller often did on his own hits."
