Introduction

Here are the weekly rankings of Patsy Cline's Cash Box Country chart positions. "I Fall To Pieces" had the greatest staying power with 34 consecutive weeks on this chart; "Imagine That" and "Sweet Dreams" are tied for the strongest Top 50 debut. Several Patsy Cline songs peaked higher on this chart than Billboard Country, including "Cry Not For Me", "Heartaches" and "Why Can't He Be You", all three of which failed to chart Billboard Country at all. "Leavin' On Your Mind" enjoyed two peak periods on Cash Box Country (#20 in its third week and a posthumous peak at #5), probably due to the singer's untimely death. Patsy had three simultaneous songs on the Cash Box Country chart for two consecutive weeks in June 1962, again in July 1962, and another three songs for a week of October 1962.
