James’ original version was recorded in 1956 as “You’re the Reason I’m In Love,” for the beginning line of the refrain. An electric guitar-heavy, slow-tempoed song, “You’re the Reason …”
In 1971 re-recorded “You’re the Reason …” in a faster-tempoed rendition, complete with a horn section. The new version was retitled “That’s Why I Love You Like I Do” (for the last line in the refrain), and was released in April. By mid-June, James had returned to the top of the Billboard country chart.
The song became James’ 22nd No. 1 hit; had “Only Love Can Break a Heart” reached the top, “That’s Why I Love You …” would have been his 18th straight No. 1 song. It was also James’ final No. 1 hit — and major hit — for Capitol Records; during 1972, he signed a contract with Columbia Records, where he had two more No. 1 hits (including the follow-up, “When the Snow is on the Roses”) and several more Top 10 hits.

Sonny James – That’s Why I Love You Like I Do Lyrics

You’re the reason I’m in love
You’re my shining star above
You’re my every dream come true
That’s why I love you like I do
Adam shared his love with Eve
Some may doubt but I believe
I would give my life for you
That’s why I love you like I do
Man wasn’t meant to be alone
He needs a girl to call his own
The only girl for me is you
That’s why I love you like I do
You’re the reason I’m in love
You’re my shining star above
You’re my every dream come true
That’s why I love you like I do
