Recorded by George Jones
Written by Dickey Lee
A/A time 
G 
We were sitting at the  
D7 
table and  
G 
we saw your old  
G7 
flame
 
You grew  
C 
restless as he passed  
G 
by
 
Though you say you can  
D7 
hardly 
 
 
G 
remember his  
G7 
name
 
I can  
C 
still see  
D7 
him in your  
G 
eyes
D7 
Oh when you whisper  
C 
sweet words to  
G 
me
 
I  
D7 
don’t hear them for I  
G 
realize
 
Should our love grow  
D7 
dim you’d  
G 
go back to  
G7 
him
 
I can  
C 
still see  
D7 
him in your  
G 
eyes
 
Though you say it’s all  
D7 
over 
 
 
G 
between you and  
G7 
him
 
And it’s  
C 
only me you ido
G 
lize
 
Then why is it when you  
D7 
see him  
G 
enter the  
G7 
room
 
I can  
C 
still see  
D7 
him in your  
G 
eyes
D7 
Oh when you whisper  
C 
sweet words to  
G 
me
 
I  
D7 
don’t hear them for I  
G 
reply
 
It’s just a matter of  
D7 
time 
 
 
G 
till you leave me  
G7 
behind
 
I can  
C 
still see  
D7 
him your  
Em 
eyes 
 
 
C 
 
I can  
G 
still see  
D7 
him your  
G 
eyes

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?'”
