Biography

By most accounts, George Jones (born George Glenn Jones September 12, 1931 in Saratoga, Texas, died April 26, 2013, in Nashville, Tennessee), was the finest vocalist in the recorded history of country music. Initially, he was a hardcore honky tonker in the tradition of Hank Williams, but over the course of his career he developed an affecting, nuanced ballad style. In the course of his career, he never left the top of the country charts, even as he suffered innumerable personal and professional difficulties. Only Eddy Arnold had more Top Ten hits, and Jones always stayed closer to the roots of hardcore country.

    Lyrics
    He said "I'll love you till I die"
    She told him "you'll forget in time"

    She still preyed upon his mind

    Lyrics
    She thinks I still care
    Just because I asked a friend about her
    Just because I spoke her name somewhere
    Just because I rang her number by mistake today
    She thinks I still care

    Lyrics
    I feel tears wellin' up
    Cold and deep inside
    Like my heart's sprung a big break
    And a stab of loneliness sharp and painful
    That I may never shake

    Lyrics
    Well, in the North of Carolina, way back in the hills
    Me and my old pappy and he had him a still
    He brewed white lightnin' till the sun went down
    And then you'd fill him a jug and he'd pass it around
    Mighty, mighty pleasin', pappy's corn squeezin'

    Lyrics
    Step right up, come on in
    If you'd like to take the grand tour
    Of a lonely house that once was home sweet home
    I have nothing here to sell you
    Just some things that I will tell you
