Everybody and their brother has covered this song, but Kiss an Angel Good Mornin’ is a song written by Ben Peters, and recorded by American country music artist Charley Pride. It was released in October 1971 as the first single from the album Charley Pride Sings Heart Songs. The song has since become one of his signature tunes and was his eighth song to reach number one on the country charts. Kiss an Angel Good Mornin’ was also Charley Pride’s first single to reach the pop charts, peaking at number twenty-one on the Billboard Hot 100, and also went into the Top Ten of the Adult Contemporary charts. It also reached #19 on the U.S. Cash Box Top 100. The song spent four months on the pop chart, longer than any of his other hits. Billboard ranked it as the No. 74 song for 1972.

Kiss An Angel Good Mornin’

by Charley Pride

Written by Ben Peters

Whenever I chance to meet
Some old friends on the street
They wonder how does a man get to be this way
I’ve always got a smiling face
Anytime and any place
And everytime they ask me why
I just smile and say

You’ve got to
Kiss an angel good morning
And let her know you think about her when you’re gone
Kiss an angel good morning
And love her like the devil when you get back home

Well people may try to guess
The secret of a happiness
But some of them never learn it’s a simple thing

The secret i’m speaking of
Is a woman and a man in love
And the answer is in this song
That i always sing

You’ve got to
Kiss an angel good morning
And let you know you think about her when you’re gone
Kiss an angel good morning
And love her like the devil when you get back home

Kiss an angel good morning
And let you know you think about her when you’re gone
Kiss an angel good morning
And love her like the devil when you get back home

    • My late dad was a huge fan! His younger brother was a circuit musician back in the day and played for Charley a few times. My dad wasn’t much of a party guy, but if there was a Charley Pride concert anywhere close… my dad was there! 😁
