Conway Twitty Was The King Of Horny Country Songs

Country music has never shied away from the topic of sex.

If you look back at our list of some of the most controversial country songs of all time, you’ll see quite a few that caused a stir for being a little too up-front about love making.

Then of course more recently we got Gary Allan’s song that was straight-up titled “SEX.” That was a wild one…

But nobody, and I mean NOBODY, had more horny country songs than Conway Twitty.

Let’s take a look at the evidence…

1. “You’ve Never Been This Far Before,” a song that was actually banned from some radio stations for its overly-sexual content.

I don’t know what I’m saying
As my trembling fingers touch forbidden places
I only know that I’ve waited
For so long for the chance that we are taking

Definitely doesn’t leave much to the imagination…

2. “Slow Hand,” which was a cover of a Pointer Sisters song that Conway released in 1982.

You want a man with a slow hand
You want a lover with an easy touch
You want somebody who will spend some time
Not come and go in a heated rush

Yeah Conway, we know what you’re doing with your hands.

3“I See The Want To In Your Eyes,” a song first recorded by Gary Stewart about a married woman trying to decide whether to sleep with another man.

How many women just like you have silent schemes
How many men like me do they sleep with in their dreams
You can stay or you can go and although I sympathize
I still see the want to in your eyes

4. “I Want To Know You Before We Make Love,” a cover of a song by Alabama that at least proves that Conway is a gentleman lover.

I’ve learned from all those lonely nights with strangers
It takes time for real love to be found
I feel the invitation of your body
And I’d like to look inside your soul before I lay you down

5. “Red Neckin’ Love Makin’ Night,” the bro-country-before-bro-country-was-a-thing song about picking up a girl in your pickup truck and kissing her under the moonlight.

Well, maybe more than kissing…

It’s a red-neckin’, love-makin’ night
You ain’t had much till you
Been touched in the moonlight
You feel it most when you get
Real close and you hold on tight
It’s a red-neckin’, love-makin’ night

6. “Tight Fittin’ Jeans,” which just proves that country guys have always had a thing for girls in “painted on jeans.”

In my mind she’s still a lady, that’s all I’m gonna say
I knew that I’d been broken by the time we parted ways
And I know I held more woman than most eyes have ever seen
That night I knew a lady wearin’ tight fittin’ jeans

7. “I’d Love To Lay You Down,” possibly Conway’s horniest song that just lays it all out there on the line. Gotta respect a guy who’s straightforward, right?

There’s a lot of ways of sayin’ what I want to say to you
There’s songs and poems and promises and dreams that might come true.
But I won’t talk of starry skies or moonlight on the ground
I’ll come right out and tell you, I’d just love to lay you down.

Conway Twitty was a legend, with a staggering FIFTY #1 songs and a career that spanned across multiple genres from 1955 until his death in 1993.

But damn, Conway got horny when he found his home in country music.
