Out of Charley Pride's 39 number one hit singles, none other is more recognizable than "Kiss An Angel Good Mornin'." To this date, the song remains one of Pride's signature tracks. 

Pride first released "Kiss An Angel Good Mornin'" in October 1971 as the lead single off of his album Charley Pride Sings Heart Songs

On December 4 1971, the song claimed the number one spot on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. The song was also Pride's first crossover hit, peaking at the 21st spot on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

"Kiss An Angel Good Mornin'" was also a popular song in Canada, where it soared to the top of the Canadian RPM Country Tracks chart and claimed the 31st spot on the Canadian RPM Top Singles chart.

Over the years, many other country artists have gone on to record their own versions of Pride's hit song, including Alan Jackson, George Jones, and Conway Twitty.

Tune in to the video below to watch Pride perform his signature song "Kiss An Angel Good Mornin'" live on The Marty Stuart Show.

As great as other artists' versions of the song may be, it seems to go without saying why Pride's version remains the most memorable. 

LYRICS BELOW

Whenever I chance to meet
some old friends on the street
They wonder how does a man get to be this way
I've always got a smiling face
Anytime and any place
And everytime they ask me why
I just smile and say

You've got to
Kiss an angel good morning
and let her know you think about her when you're gone
Kiss an angel good morning
and love her like the devil when you get back home

Well people may try to guess
The secret of a happiness
but some of them never learn it's a simple thing

The secret i'm speaking of
Is a woman and a man in love
and the answer is in this song
that i always sing

You've got to
Kiss an angel good morning
and let you know you think about her when you're gone
Kiss an angel good morning
and love her like the devil when you get back home

Kiss an angel good morning
and let you know you think about her when you're gone
Kiss an angel good morning
and love her like the devil when you get back home
