He was the King. Voice like smooth bourbon. I think his song Choices would be a good epitaph for him. I woulda liked to have gotten hammered drunk with that man

I bought three big boxed sets of George Jones CDs from www.Amazon.com . They are from Bear Family Records . Each set is 5 or 4 CDs . Two of mine have defects and skip on a song or two but I couldn't bear to part with them long enough to get replacements .

A local paper relegated the news of this great man's death to its Section "C" . I wrote to the local rag that they probably gave better billing to Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson and Amy Winehouse ---all of whom don't amount to a hill of beans next to George Jones .

Yes, 7point62 , Choices is a great epitaph :


George Jones Choices Lyrics ( excerpts )


I've had choices
Since the day that I was born
There were voices
That told me right from wrong
If I had listened
No, I wouldn't be here today
Living and dying
With the choices I've made.
...

I was tempted
By an early age I found
I liked drinkin'
Oh, and I never turned it down
There were loved ones
But I turned them all away
Now I'm living and dying
With the choices I've made.
...

I guess I'm payin'
For the things that I have done
If I could go back
Oh, Lord knows I'd run
But I'm still losin'
This game of life I play
Living and dying
With the choices I've made.

...
