Who was the original singer of counting flowers on the wall

Flowers On The Wall is a song made famous by country music group The Statler Brothers.

Written and composed by the group's original tenor, Lew DeWitt, Flowers On The Wall peaked in popularity in January 1966, spending four weeks at No. 2 on the Billboard magazine Hot Country Singles chart, and reaching No. 4 on the Hot 100 chart.

In the years since its release, "Flowers on the Wall" became one of the trademark songs of the Statler Brothers' 40-year career.

The Statler Brothers, Harold Reid, Phil Balsley, Jimmy Fortune and Don Reid, were the premier group in country music for nearly forty years. Entering the business in 1964 as the backup voices for Johnny Cash on stage, record and TV, they served their apprenticeship with him for 8 1/2 years. During that time they recorded their first hit record, “Flowers on the Wall”, and were regulars on the weekly Johnny Cash Show on ABC TV.
