The country way

This Charley Pride album from 1967 (RCA Victor LSP-3895) has some of the greatest, and we're lucky to hear them quite often on KVET's Saturday-morning oldies show, especially Crystal Chandeliers and Does My Ring Hurt Your Finger (When You Go Out at Night). His version of Life Turned Her That Way ("I hate to admit it but that last footprint's mine") is a fine one. RCA was really giving him some good stuff, along with a Chet Atkins production. I really hate Little Folks, but it's possible to laugh at Mama, When I'm Gone Don't Cry for Me (and that one lends itself well to variant substitute lyrics for almost any occasion).
