|Tanya Tucker singles chronology|
"I Won't Take Less Than Your Love" is a song written by Paul Overstreet and Don Schlitz, and recorded by American country music artist Tanya Tucker with Paul Davis & Overstreet. It was released in October 1987 as the second single from the album Love Me Like You Used To. The single went to number one for one week and spent fifteen weeks on the country chart.
"I Won't Take Less Than Your Love" showcases three examples of servitude and gratitude, and the receiver -- a man devoted to his wife, a grateful son, and a Christian deeply committed to serving God -- seeking a way to repay the giver. Each one responds with the song's title line, the lesson being that love is worth more than the riches, comforts and treasures of the world.
The first verse (about the married couple) was sung by Davis, the second verse (about the mother-son relationship) by Tucker, and the final verse (the Christian) by Overstreet.
