Morning Song – You’ll Lose A Good Thing

September 2, 2015

In the dominant narrative, it’s never a left-handed Negro girl from East Texas who saw Elvis on television, decided “I want to be like him“, took up the guitar, led her own band and wrote chart-topping hits.

That’s because the dominant narrative doesn’t know what to do with Barbara Lynn, a good Christian girl from Beaumont, Texas whose smoky, bluesy song, “You’ll Lose A Good Thing”, hit #8 on the pop charts and bumped Ray Charles’ “I Can’t Stop Loving You” from #1 on the R&B charts back in 1962.
