B.J. Thomas', "Billy & Sue"
Misheard Lyrics:
Sue's letters came every day
Straight from his house,
they showed him the way
Original Lyrics:
Sue's letters came every day
Strengthened his cause,
they showed him the way
"Billy & Sue" was a big hit in early summer of 1966 (although it was recorded in 1964) - it had to wait 2 years in obscurity before riding the coattails of "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" and "Mama" to hit the charts in '66. But it was worth the wait! Was on the Hickory label, and billed as B.J. Thomas & the Triumphs.
