Mississippi native Charley Pride stormed onto the country music scene in the late 1960’s. Between 1969 and 1971, he had an incredible streak of singles, with eight simultaneously reaching the No. 1 spot on the country charts.
“Kiss An Angel Good Mornin'” was released in October 1971, and instantly gained success. Not only did the song hit the top of the country charts, it made the top 10 songs on the adult contemporary chart as well.
The song is upbeat and sweet, describing a man and woman madly in love. When asked why he is so happy, the man replies that he is “kissed by an angel every morning.” Enjoy this vintage performance of Charley Pride performing his signature song on The Marty Stuart Show below!
“Kiss An Angel Good Mornin'” Lyrics
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 smilin’ face any time and any place
And everytime they ask me why I just smile and say
You’ve got to kiss an angel good mornin’
And let her know you think about her when you’re gone
Kiss an angel good mornin’ and love her like a devil when you get back home
Well people may try to guess the secret of 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 the song that I always sing
You’ve got to kiss an angel good mornin’…
Kiss an angel good mornin’…
