Recorded by George Jones and Tammy Wynette
Written by Billy Sherrill, Carmol Taylor, Monroe Fields
[G]It was so good when he loved you
I could tell by the sunshine on your [D7]face
Though he bought you pretty things
I know he made your world a happy [G]place
And I remember when she loved you
And in [G7]those days you’ve had someone to [C]care
And [D7]through your long and lonely nights
When you needed someone she was [G]there
Oh but lately you’re not smiling
And I don’t see that sunshine like be[D7]fore
I know you tried to make it work
But I don’t think he loves you any[G]more
And I know she must have hurt you
Cause I [G7]see the things you tried so hard to [C]find
But [D7]if we’d have each other
It might just stop this hurt we have in[G]side
Change to [C]m–[D7]e and keep the [G]change
And [C]I won’t do you [G]like he did
And [A7]I won’t hurt you like [D7]she did
[G]Change to [C]m–[D7]e and keep the [G]change
And we’ll [C]never need [G]another
[D7]Once we have each [G]other
Change to [C]m–[D7]e and keep the [G]change[/chordpress]

Who is George Jones?
– George Glenn Jones (September 12, 1931 – April 26, 2013) was an American musician, singer, and songwriter. He achieved international fame for his long list of hit records, including his best-known song “He Stopped Loving Her Today”, as well as his distinctive voice and phrasing. For the last two decades of his life, Jones was frequently referred to as the greatest living country singer. Country music scholar Bill Malone writes, “For the two or three minutes consumed by a song, Jones immerses himself so completely in its lyrics, and in the mood it conveys, that the listener can scarcely avoid becoming similarly involved.” Waylon Jennings expressed a similar opinion in his song “It’s Alright”: “If we all could sound like we wanted to, we’d all sound like George Jones.” The shape of his nose and facial features earned Jones the nickname “The Possum”.Born in Texas, Jones first heard country music when he was seven, and was given a guitar at the age of nine. He married his first wife, Dorothy Bonvillion, in 1950, and was divorced in 1951. He served in the United States Marine Corps and was discharged in 1953. He married Shirley Ann Corley in 1954. In 1959, Jones recorded “White Lightning”, written by J. P. Richardson, which launched his career as a singer. His second marriage ended in divorce in 1968 he married fellow country music singer Tammy Wynette a year later. Years of alcoholism compromised his health and led to his missing many performances, earning him the nickname “No Show Jones”. After his divorce from Wynette in 1975, Jones married his fourth wife, Nancy Sepulvado, in 1983 and became sober for good in 1999. Jones died in 2013, aged 81, from hypoxic respiratory failure.
George Jones has been called “The Rolls Royce Of Country Music” and had more than 160 chart singles to his name from 1955 until his death in 2013.
Johnny Cash once said, “When people ask me who my favorite country singer is, I say, ‘You mean besides George Jones?'”
