I don't know off the top of my head who wrote it, but Bobby Gentry took it to #1 I believe and had a bigger hit with it than Reba did. I'll be back if I can find more info for you. Welcome to the Planet, by the way!

Welcome to PG!

I did a web search and found the lyrics at a few places and Bobbie Gentry is listed as the songwriter. According to one fan site, in the biography for Roberta Lee Streeter (aka Bobbie Gentry),
The single "Fancy" reached number 26 on the Country chart and 31 on the pop chart.Maybe Joyce will find a more credible source for where it charted.

Well I was sure mixed up then! Thanks for doing that Paula, I had a preds game tonight and family came in, and I hadn't had a chance to look.

Any idea how high Reba took the song?
