Sammi Smith performs "Help Me Make It Though The Night"

"Help Me Make It Through The Night" is a country music ballad written and composed by Kris Kristofferson and released on his 1970 album Kristofferson. It was covered later in 1970 by Sammi Smith, on the album Help Me Make It Through the Night. Smith's recording of the song remains the most commercially successful and most well-known version in the United States. Her recording ranks among the most successful country singles of all time in terms of sales, popularity, and radio airplay. It topped the country singles chart, and was also a crossover hit, reaching number eight on the U.S. pop singles chart. "Help Me Make It Through The Night" also became Smith's signature song.

 

Inspired by Smith's success with the song, numerous other artists covered it soon thereafter, including Loretta Lynn, Glen Campbell, Joan Baez, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, and Willie Nelson.

Sammi Smith - Help Me Make It Though The Night Lyrics

 

Take the ribbon from my hair

Shake it loose and let it fall

Lay it soft upon my skin

Like the shadows on the wall

Come and lay down by my side

Til the early mornin' light

All I'm takin' is your time

Help me make it through the night

I don't care what's right or wrong

I won't try to understand

Let the devil take tomorrow

But tonight I need a friend

Yesterday is dead and gone

And tomorrow's out of sight

And it's sad to be alone

Help me make it through the night

And it's sad to be alone

Help me make it through the night

I don't want to be alone

Help me make it through the night)
