Bill Anderson performs "I Love You Drops"

James William Anderson III (born November 1, 1937), known as Whisperin’ Bill Anderson, is an American country music singer, songwriter and television personality. He has been a member in long standing of the weekly Grand Ole Opry radio program and stage performance in Nashville, Tennessee, since 1961. He has released more than 40 studio albums and has reached No. 1 on the country charts seven times: "Mama Sang a Song" (1962), "Still" (1963), "I Get the Fever" (1966), "For Loving You" (with Jan Howard, 1967), "My Life (Throw It Away If I Want To)" (1969), "World of Make Believe" (1973), and "Sometimes" (with Mary Lou Turner, 1976). Twenty-nine more of his singles have reached the top ten.

 

One of the most successful songwriters in country music history, Anderson is also a popular singer, earning the nickname "Whisperin' Bill" for his soft vocal style and occasional spoken narrations.[1] Artists who have recorded his material include Ray Price, Wanda Jackson, Connie Smith, Lynn Anderson, Jim Reeves, Conway Twitty, Eddy Arnold, Roy Clark, Con Hunley, Lefty Frizzell, Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney, and George Strait.

 

Bill Anderson had his own television show in the 1960s. Anderson has made several television appearances, including two stints as a game show host: The Better Sex (with co-host Sarah Purcell) in 1977, and the country music-themed quiz show Fandango (1983–1989) on The Nashville Network. He has also hosted an interview show called Opry Backstage and was a producer of a talent show called You Can Be a Star, hosted by fellow Opry member Jim Ed Brown, both shows on the former Nashville Network, and has made guest appearances on several other television series.

 

Anderson is a member of the Grand Ole Opry, the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Bill Anderson - I Love You Drops lyrics

 

They're not teardrops

Just sincere drops

They're I love you drops

'Cause I love you. (I love you.)

 

They were on my pillow when I woke up this morning

They were on the letter I tried all day to write

And just a little while ago I saw them

Falling on your picture as I kissed it goodnight.

 

I love you drops

I miss you drops

Hurry home drops

You've been gone so long drops.

 

They're not teardrops

Just sincere drops

That say I'm lonesome

And I love you, (I love you.)

 

Never knew this heart could hurt the way it hurts for you

Never lived so many lifetimes in a week

Why don't you come back to me the way you said you would

And kiss these little crystals off my cheek.

 

I love you drops

I miss you drops

Hurry home drops

You've been gone so long drops.

 

They're not teardrops

Just sincere drops

That say I'm lonesome

And I love you. (hurry home.)

 

I love you. (I love you.)...
