Rev. Paul Jones “I Won’t Complain”

Rev. Paul Jones (1960-1990) was the founding Pastor of New Grove Missionary Baptist Church in Houston, TX. Rev. Jones was a dynamic preacher and singer whose life was cut short at the youthful age of 30 when he was murdered at his home in the Houston area in 1990. Also, Rev. Paul Jones is a lot of time credited with writing this song but Bishop William C. Abney originally wrote, “I won’t complain”.

Bishop Sang!!!

Dear Church Enthusiast. Thank you so much for your blog. I truly appreciate your showing the videos for "I Won't Complain" with the proper credit going to Bishop Abney, as well as placing the urls for the videos. I'm completing a book on 21st Century Christianity and thanks to the information you shared, I have some even richer content. I didn't realize that Rev Paul Jones had died under those circumstances either so, thanks again, and please keep up the great works! Blessings and God Speed to you, Jo Lena Johnson.

The orginal called I can't complain was written by a white country gospel singer back in the 70's. The first gospel rendition of the song was recorded by James Lenox of Chicago in 1982 (called God has been so good to me). Rev Jones and Bishop Abney popularized and took the song to a great level. All of the versions are awesome. It is just a great song.

I concur with Anonymous, a white country gospel singer and pastor indeed wrote I Won't Complain. His name is Bishop Don Johnson from Memphis. He is still living, though up in years now.

The gentleman who wrote "I can't complain" was the Rev Don Johnson from Memphis TN. Sadly Br Johnson passed away this past Tuesday. Br Johnson wrote many songs however "I can't complain" will always be my favorite.

I've noticed that many attribute the writing of this song to the late Rev Paul Jones, but in truth, he was not the author of the song “I Won't Complain”. Rather, this great gospel song was actually written in 1974 by the late Rev. Don Johnson from Nashville, Tennesse, an ALJC pastor. The correct title to the song is actually “I Can’t Complain”, but has been changed over time. Very few words have been changed to the Rev. Johnson’s song for the version, ” I Won’t Complain”. Please go to You Tube to view Rev. Don Johnson himself singing this beautiful original song, “I Can’t Complain" @

I was just introduced to the song,
"I Won't Complain".. when looking up the composer, some gave the credit to Rev. johnson, some to V. Micheal Mckay and yet others to Bishop William C. Abney...
I do believe Bishop Abney to be the true writer.
Whoever wrote it, I'm just thankful for the song!

The previous is definitely the most convenient

may be the most inexpensive alternative there is given

I grew up in the 1970's in Canada with Rev Don Johnson from Memphis, TN coming to our church and singing a song he wrote, "I Can't Complain". It was one our favorites. Everyone who has been around Rev. Johnson and the songs he has written knows the song originated through his burden and anointing, and it would be wrong to accredit it to others who deceitfully lay claim to it.

Rev. Paul Jones stole this song and was being sued by the original author at the time of his death in 1990. The original songwriter was Rev. Don Johnson, an ALJC Pastor from Memphis Tennessee. It was written and copyrighted in 1974. Anyone else claiming authorship is a fraud. It has been adopted by the black church as a hymn and many think that one of theirs wrote it but such is not true. It is a beautiful song and should be enjoyed by all but true authorship should be noted.
