He Made Me Free
Recorded by George Jones
Written by Darrell Edwards
A/A time 
C 
I had drifted for so  
G7 
long with my  
C 
life so full of  
F 
wrong
 
That the  
C 
Lord should have turned His back on  
G7 
me
 
But He  
C 
took the trembling  
G7 
hand of a  
C 
lost and lonely  
F 
man
 
Broke the  
C 
chains from mortal  
G7 
shame and made me  
C 
free 
 
 
F 
 
C 
 
Yes He took away the  
G7 
sin from my  
F 
soul where it had  
C 
been
 
And He helped my blinding eyes again to  
G7 
see
 
Yes and  
C 
now I under
G7 
stand the beauty  
C 
of salvation's  
F 
plan
 
Out on the  
C 
cross You paid the

cost and made me  
C 
free
 
I had sunk so deep in  
G7 
shame never  
C 
calling on His  
F 
name
 
All the  
C 
joys of life had turned to mise
G7 
ry
 
But then  
C 
He gave me back  
G7 
control of my  
C 
lost and wandering  
F 
soul
 
Removed the  
C 
fears dried my  
G7 
tears and made me  
C 
free 
 
 
F 
 
C 
 
Yes He took away the  
G7 
sin that had  
F 
stained me deep  
C 
within
 
And He gave me back the fate that I might  
G7 
see
 
Now I'm  
C 
so glad I under
G7 
stand the promise  
C 
of salvation's  
F 
plan
 
Out on the  
C 
cross You paid the  
G7 
cost and made me  
C 
free

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?'"
