The song’s first run of popularity, as “You’re the Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me,” came in 1973, when country music singer Ray Price took the song to number 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart on October 6, 1973.
For that version, it represented a last and a first. The “last” was Price’s seventh and most recent No. 1 single, in a string dating back to his 1956 hit “Crazy Arms.” The “first”: It was the No. 1 single on the debut program of American Country Countdown, which used the Billboard chart in its programming. Although it fell short of the top 40 in his native United States, the song was an easy listening hit in Canada, his third such hit there.

Ray Price – You’re the Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’ve had my share of life’s ups and downs
But fate’s been kind, the downs have been few
I guess you could say that I’ve been lucky
And I guess you could say, it’s all because of you
[Chorus]
If anyone should ever write my life story
For whatever reason there might be
You’d be there between each line of pain and glory
‘Cause you’re the best thing that ever happened to me
You’re the best thing that ever happened to me
[Verse 2]
Lord, there have been times when the times were so hard
But always, somehow, I made it through
But for every moment I’ve spent hurting
There was a moment spent loving you
[Chorus]
If anyone should ever write my life story
For whatever reason there might be
You’d be there between each line of pain and glory
‘Cause you’re the best thing that ever happened to me
You’re the best thing that ever happened to me
