Is It Wrong For Loving You




According to Warner Mack, his 1957 hit "Is It Wrong for Loving You," actually started when he was 13 years old and dating a girl.

Warner commented, "My dad had driven me over to this girl's house and then he came back and picked me up, but I forgot my hat.  So he took me back over to her house to get my hat.  But when we got back to her house, she was sitting on the porch with another boy.  She had another date after I had left her house.  So I was cutting the grass at the park there in Vicksburg, Mississippi and I just started singing that line, "Is it wrong for loving you?"  The line just came to mind and of course it took me a while to write it, but that is where that song came from."
