Harlan Perry

“He wrote the songs
    I held the pen”
  Heartaches by the number …
I fall to pieces … Life turned her
that way … Tiger by the tail …
Busted … Above and Beyond …
Somebody should leave …
Somewhere tonight …Don’t tell
me what to do… Why not me …
Blame it on your heart …

Most people know Harlan Howard
by the songs he’s penned – More
than 4,000 of them.  In a six
decade career, the “Dean of
Nashville Songwriters” established
himself as one of the most prolific
songwriters of all time.

While here, he loved and was loved.
