Certainly one of the best songs by one of the greatest. I always thought that this was my favorite George Jones songs until I heard "Choices", hard to pick between the two.

Why can't we have more artists like George Jones? This is a great song!

Now this is genuine country music!!! Anything labeled country, made after 2000 is pretty much pop-crap..

Is Mickey Raphael playing harmonica on this version?No one else sounds like that.I love this.George didn't want to record this, because he said it was too sad.I'm glad he changed his mind.
