Cover LP Johnny Duncan Columbia 1977
Featuring harmony vocals, and a solo line at a key point in the song’s third verse by session vocalist Janie Fricke, “Thinkin’ of a Rendezvous” was Duncan’s first number-one song on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart in December 1976. A two-week run atop the country chart was part of a 13-week stay in the country chart’s top 40.
The song — about a family man who meets up with a woman, a long-time friend with whom he had a secret affair a year earlier — was the first of two Duncan-Fricke duets to top the charts. The follow-up song, “It Couldn’t Have Been Any Better”, went number one in April 1977, and the two enjoyed several other duet hits, most notably “Stranger” (written by Kris Kristofferson, and a hit in July 1976) and “Come a Little Bit Closer” in January 1978 (a cover of the Jay and the Americans).

Johnny Duncan – Thinkin’ of a Rendezvous Lyrics

I said, “Hello, my its been such a long time”
You said, “Yes, it has, its been a year or more”
Then you smiled and asked about my wife and family
I said, “Johnny’s six and Judy’s almost four”
But I was thinking how I’d love to get you alone for one hour
Down at the Family Inn like we used to do
We kept talking like nothing ever happened
But I was making small talk, thinking of a rendezvous
You said, “Are you still working down at the factory”
I said, “Yes I am, guess I’ll be there ’til I die”
You asked me if I still went down to Joe’s Place
I said, “Ya, I do, but it’s been a long, long time”
But I was thinking how I’d love to get you alone for one hour
Down at the Family Inn like we used to do
We kept talking like nothing ever happened
But I was making small talk, thinking of a rendezvous
And you said, “Gotta go, sure been nice to see you
But I told Jack that I’d be home by nine”
I said, “By the way, tell him I said hello
And we’ll all have to get together sometime”
But I was thinking how I’d love to get you alone for one hour
Down at the Family Inn like we used to do
We kept talking like nothing ever happened
But I was making small talk, thinking of a rendezvous
