The Old Man No One Loves
Recorded by George Jones
Written by Wyman Asbill
G 
In a bar room down in Georgia sits an  
C 
old 
 
man
 
His  
A7 
whiskers grey and two or three days  
D7 
old
 
You can  
G 
tell he’s dreaming up another  
C 
story
 
Just in case there’s  
D7 
one he hasn’t  
G 
told
 
There’s a story that he tells about a  
C 
woman
 
And  
A7 
always says she was a beauty  
D7 
queen
 
But he  
G 
said the angels came for her one  
C 
morning
 
After that he just gave  
D7 
up on every
G 
thing
 
The old man no one  
G7 
loves is what they  
C 
call 
 
him
 
The  
A7 
tales he tells are taller than the  
D7 
sky
 
The  
G 
old man no one  
G7 
loves could tell some  
C 
big 
 
ones
 
And everybody laughs and says you  
D7 
know that old man  
G 
lies
 
There’s the one he always tells about his  
C 
children
 
His  
A7 
son the doctor is up in Ohi
D7 
o
 
His  
G 
daughter owns a bank in Cali
C 
fornia
 
But he don’t ever  
D7 
see them any
G 
more

repeat #3

 
But you know that old man that no  
C 
one loves he died this morning
Am 
 
The whole town was s
A7 
hocked by all those  
D7 
big long limousines
G 
And all his children gathered ’round and  
C 
they wept beside him
 
And one cried out my  
D7 
daddy’s gone to  
G 
join his beauty queen

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?'”
