Gayle wanted to be at the level of her older sister, Loretta Lynn. It was her sister’s help that helped produce Gayle’s first single called “I’ve Cried the Blue Right of My Eyes”. However, it was the help of composer Richard Leigh who helped her gain control of her career. He wrote his first two greatest hits, “Wrong Road Again” and “Somebody Loves You.” In 1976, Gayle finally released “I’ll Get Over You.” The song became Gayle’s first number one hit and made it a household name for Gayle.

Crystal Gayle – I’ll get over you Lyrics

One thing ’bout this heart of mine
All my hurts got a mending time
It don’t leave no scars behind
I’ll get over you
I’ll find me a guy one day
Who’s not scared to give his heart away
When I do It’s safe to say that I’ll get over you

I’ll get over you
I’ll get through it when I do
I’ll be good as new
When I get over you

From now on think Ill lay low
I’ll talk fast but Ill move slow
You taught me all I need to know
’bout gettin over you
Sometimes I think I love you still
Wonder if I always will
But I know its just until I get over you

I’ll get over you
I’ll get through it when I do
I’ll be good as new
When I get over you

Sometimes think I love you still
Wonder if I always will
Love for you’s so hard to kill
But I’ll get over you

I’ll get over you
I’ll get through it when I do
I’ll be good as new
When I get over you

I’ll get over you
I’ll get through it when I do
I’ll be good as new
When I get over you

I’ll get over you
I’ll get through it when I do
I’ll be good as new
When I get over you

I’ll get over you
I’ll get through it when I do
I’ll be good as new
When I get over you
