How many Kristofferson songs

Kris Kristofferson is a prolific song writer. How many Kristofferson songs are there exactly? What’s missing and what shouldn’t be on this list?

John Buckley started the list, Karen Hume has gone through it & updated it – Huge thanks to both. Kris’ catalogue is huge and getting the information together is a real labour of love.

The list includes songs that were both written and released by Kris Kristofferson, it excludes songs that Kris has performed that were written by others.

Kris wrote Vietnam Blues, but we haven’t found any recording of his that was actually published so it is not listed.

This is a project in progress. Subscribe or follow us for updates.
