"Leavin' On Your Mind" is a famous Country/Pop song written by Wayne Walker and Webb Pierce was popularized by Patsy Cline in 1963.
In 1963, Patsy Cline was at the height of her career. In the meantime, she was looking for her next single to release for the upcoming year. Wayne Walker and Webb Pierce wrote the song for her called "Leavin' On Your Mind". Cline released the song in January 1963 and it became a top ten Country hit for Cline. Unlike her earlier hits "Crazy" and "I Fall to Pieces", "Leavin' On Your Mind" was an unfortunate failure on the pop chart, where it stalled at #83. However, the song today remains a classic in Country music. Initially, Cline was going to release the single on her next upcoming, fourth album called Faded Love, along with two other singles that year.
However, the album was never released due to the tragic event that ended her life, which was a plane crash that March. The album was to be released at the end of March. Instead, the album was released on a double compilation album called The Patsy Cline Story. This album featured all of Cline's big hits, starting for her first in 1957 to 1963. The album was a huge hit and is still being sold today.
