My name is Amanda and my aunt would sing this song to me and play her guitar for me growing up. I used to not care much for the song, but now that i am older i realize why and i also have grown to love waylon although he is no longer with us, his legend lives on within me it seems. When i hear this song i smile because it brings back memories. I have come to realize that waylon is GREAT!!
I've been a Bluegrass/Country performer for about 30 years now. Amanda was the VERY first song I ever sang before an audience. My knees were knocking together as I sang, but when I finished, everyone whooped and hollared, and a ham was born. Hearing that song always brings back that memory. Will miss you Waylon.

When i was a child i didnt like the song, but now as a adult I really like the words and understand where he was coming from and why he named me Amanda.... I look bak and it touches my heart when ever i think of it..

Waylon sang this to me at a concert in Owensboro, Kentucky in 1993 when I was 13. I hate country music, but my dad always liked Waylon and wanted me to go with him. My little sister and I were the youngest people at the concert as far as I could see, and Waylon talked to us between songs. When he found out my name, he sang the song to me but with different words than the Amanda song on his album.

When I was younger my dad would listen to this song and he would sing it to me and to this day when he sings this song it still makes me cry because I know how he feels about me and when I was mad at him I would listen to this song and feel better
