Recorded by George Jones
Written by Curly Putman, Ron Hellard, Bucky Jones
[C]He’s got a [F]funny red nose [C]old baggy pants
When [G7]he staggers down the street [C]it’s a funny little dance
[F]Children gather round when [C]he falls down
[G7]Everybody laughs at wino the [C]clown
They just don’t know the [F]reason why [G7]that when she died [C]he died inside
He lost all his [F]will to live and [D7]he had no use for [G7]pride
[C]Not even all his children’s love [F]could bring him back [D7]again
[G7]He just crawled into a bottle now he’s waiting for the [C]end
They laugh when he comes [F]down the street [G7]stumbling all [C]alone
At the way he smiles and [F]holds his arm [D7]just as if someone’s holding [G7]on
[C]They all think he’s lost his mind [F]talking to thin [D7]air
[G7]Oh but only me and my daddy knows that mama’s walking [C]there
[F]But I never laugh when my [C]daddy falls down
[G7]I’ll always love wino the [C]clown[/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?'”
