Today's KLAW classic was written by Kris Kristofferson but first recorded by someone you would have never thought of.

It was actually Ray Stevens who first recorded 'Sunday Morning Coming Down' in 1969.  It was his first country hit reaching #55 on the charts.  Kristofferson recorded the next year, but it didn't reach the number on spot on the charts until the 'man in black' recorded it.  It topped the charts on this day in 1970.

Here's your KLAW Classic, 'Sunday Morning Coming Down'.
