Written by Frank Simon and Stan Gardner
Released by Patsy Cline July 20 1955

Songs by Patsy Cline is an EP released by American country music singer, Patsy Cline on August 5, 1957. It was Cline's first released EP collection.

Track Listing:
Side 1:
1."Honky Tonk Merry Go Round" — (Eddie Miller, W.S. Stevenson)
2."A Church, a Courtroom, and Then Goodbye" — (Sammy Masters)
Side 2:
1."Turn the Cards Slowly" — (Miller, Stevenson)
2."Hidin' Out" — (Frank Simon, Stan Gardner)

The EP was released at the same date that Cline's self-titled debut album was released. However, none of the four tracks on theEP were included on the album. Two of the songs had previously been released as singles; "A Church, a Courtroom, and Then Goodbye" and "Hidin' Out". All four of these tracks were recorded on Cline's first recording session on June 1, 1955. None of these singles were successful hits. Cline eventually had her first major hit with "Walkin' After Midnight" in 1957, which is the key reason why Songs by Patsy Cline was released. It would be one of two extended play albums issued before her signing to Decca Records in late 1960.

Songs by Patsy Cline was issued by Coral Records, a Decca subsidiary. Cline's label, Four Star, leased money from Coral to issue her 1957 EP.
