About On the Other Hand

"On the Other Hand" is a country music song written by Paul Overstreet and Don Schlitz. It was first released as a single by a relatively unknown artist, Randy Travis, in July 1985, peaking at number 67 in the United States. It was Travis' first single with Warner Bros. Nashville and was only a minor hit. "On the Other Hand" was then recorded by Keith Whitley on his October 1985 album, L. A. to Miami, but not released as a single. After the chart successes of Travis' next single, "1982", the label reissued "On the Other Hand" in April 1986, and it became his first number one hit in both the United States and Canada. . "On the Other Hand" and "1982" were both included on Travis' 1986 debut album, Storms of Life.

On one hand I count the reasons I could stay with you
And hold you close to me, all night long.
So many lover's games I could play with you
And on that hand I see no reason why it's wrong

But on the other hand, There's a golden band
To remind of someone who would not understand
On one hand I could stay and be your loving man
But the reason I must go is on the other hand

In your arms I feel the passion, I thought had died
When I looked into your eyes I found myself
When I first kissed your lips I felt so alive
I've got to hand it to you girl, you're something else

But on the other hand, There's a golden band
To remind of someone who would not understand
On one hand I could stay and be your loving man
But the reason I must go is on the other hand
