This song….originally by George Jones and covered by many competent vocalists through the years….is one of the saddest songs ever recorded.
It is “tear you up sad”.
It’s probably the perfect country song….and I guess that if you do or don’t like country music, that thought probably holds true no matter what side of the conversation you’re on.
It’s a big story told in a couple of minutes.
Here’s George singing it….just so you have an idea of how it really sounds.
Sorry, Mountain Man.
