    Couldn't tell you how many hours I've spent listening to him and to the duets of him and Tammy Wynette.

    He looked like Jim Carey in that terrible spoof Carey did recently and I was hoping it was Carey who passed away instead...

    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.

    ...
