Daddy Come Home by George Jones


He Stopped Loving Her Today
George Jones
Words and Music by Bob Braddock and Claude Putman, Jr.
(peak Billboard position # 1 in 1980)
He said "I'll love you till I die", she told him "You'll forget in time"
As the years went slowly by, she still preyed upon his mind
He kept her picture on his wall, went half-crazy now and then
He still loved her through it all, hoping she'd come back again
Kept some letters by his bed dated nineteen sixty-two
He had underlined in red every single "I love you"
I went to see him just today, oh but I didn't see no tears
All dressed up to go away, first time I'd seen him smile in years
He stopped loving her today
They placed a wreath upon his door
And soon they'll carry him away
He stopped loving her today
SPOKEN
You know, she came to see him one last time. Aww, 'n' we all wondered if she
would. And it kept runnin' through my mind-"this time he's over her for good."
He stopped loving her today
They placed a wreath upon his door
And soon they'll carry him away
He stopped loving her today
