"Morning Side of the Mountain" is a song written by Larry Stock and Dick Manning and first recorded in 1951 by Tommy Edwards. The song hit number twenty-four on the pop chart. Edwards re-recorded the song again in 1959, when it hit number twenty-seven on the Billboard Hot 100.[1] The re-release was featured as the B-side of Edwards' other hit, a cover of Johnnie Ray's 1952 hit, "Please Mr. Sun."

Donny & Marie cover[edit]

Late in 1974, Donny & Marie Osmond released a version of the song which hit number eight on the Billboard Hot 100 and spent one week at number one on the Easy Listening chart.[2] The song charted equally well in Canada.
