“The Man in Love With You”
Written by Steve Dorff and Gary Harju
“The Man in Love With You” is a humble declaration of love, as a man runs down his shortcomings but qualifies them with his unconditional love.
The lonesome fiddle and his pleading vocal match up well with the sentiment, and if it doesn’t quite soar like “I Cross My Heart,” it doesn’t need to. It’s a love song grounded in reality.
A fitting cleanup single to Strait’s Easy Come Easy Go project, which followed 1982’s Strait From the Heart and 1989’s Beyond the Blue Neon as his third album to produce four top ten singles.
