The Statler Brothers performs "Susan When She Tried" This song is by The Statler Brothers and appears on the album Sons Of The Motherland (1974) and on the album The Definitive Collection MCA Years (2012) The Statler Brothers (sometimes referred to in country music circles as simply The Statlers) were an American country music, gospel, and vocal group. The quartet was formed in 1955 performing locally and, in 1964, they began singing backup for Johnny Cash. Originally performing gospel music at local churches, the group billed themselves as The Four Star Quartet, and later The Kingsmen.In 1963, when the song "Louie, Louie" by the garage rock band also called The Kingsmen became famous, the group elected to bill themselves as The Statler Brothers. Despite the name, only two members of the group (Don and Harold Reid) are actual brothers and none has the surname of Statler. The band, in fact, named themselves after a brand of facial tissue they had noticed in a hotel room (they joked that they could have turned out to be the Kleenex Brothers).Don Reid sang lead; Harold Reid, Don's older brother, sang bass; Phil Balsley sang baritone; and Lew DeWitt sang tenor and was the guitarist of the Statlers before being replaced by Jimmy Fortune in 1983 due to DeWitt's ill health.DeWitt continued to perform as a solo artist until his death on August 15, 1990, from heart and kidney disease.

The Statler Brothers - Susan When She Tried   I got over Charlotte Thompson, Goldie Johnson Lord they done me wrong I took it hard with Peggy Harper She hurt me bad, but not for long   There's just one I remember Makes me feel, funny down inside I'd trade 'em all, for just one hour Of Susan when she tried   No there's never been a woman Who could make me weak inside And give me what I needed Like Susan when she tried   It gets worse in the summer When the nights are hot and long And it's bad in December When they play those Christmas songs   So if you ask me and I don't tell you Bet your sweet bottom dollar I lied 'Cause there's never been one better Than Susan when she tried   No there's never been a woman Who could make me weak inside And give me what I needed Like Susan when she tried   No there's never been a woman Who could make me weak inside And give me what I needed Like Susan when she tried   No there's never been a woman Who could make me weak inside And give me what I needed Like Susan when she tried
