I Guess I'm Crazy is the seventh track on Mavis Staples' first Paisley Park Records album Time Waits For No One.

A tape photographed in Prince's vault at Paisley Park Studios lists it as 29 July 1987 alluding the exact date for the recording at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. Prince revised the song in late June 1988, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota (during the same set of sessions as recording Time Waits For No One and revising Come Home and Train).

The song was then sent (along with Time Waits For No One, Come Home and Train) to Mavis Staples in Memphis, TN, USA, where she recorded lead vocal overdubs with producers Al Bell, Homer Banks and Lester Snell at Ardent Studios.
