"Wrong" is a song written by Steve Seskin and Andre Pessis, and recorded by American country music singer Waylon Jennings. It was released in May 1990 as the first single from his album The Eagle.[1]

"Wrong" spent twenty-one weeks on the Hot Country Songs charts and peaked at number five. The song was the last top ten hit of his career, and his first since "Rough and Rowdy Days" three years previous.[1] Only one of his other singles for Epic, "The Eagle", made the top 40 on the same chart.[2]
