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 'til I die
    She told him you'll forget in time
    As the years went slowly by
    She still preyed upon his mind.

    Just because I ask a friend about her
    Just because I spoke her name somewhere
    Just because I rang her number by mistake today

    Lyrics
    I feel tears wellin' up cold and deep inside
    Like my heart's sprung a big leak
    And a stab of loneliness sharp and painful
    That I may never shake
    You might say that I was taking it hard

    Well the G men T men revenoers too searchin for the place where he made his brew

    Step right up, come on in

    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
