Ol' George Stopped Drinkin' Today

This song is by George Jones and appears on the album Shine On (1983).

Me and the bottle
Have always been friends
Oh, we've had a few ol' nasty fights
But the bottle would always win
And when I go to answer that final curtain call
I can hear these words bein' whispered by all.

Chorus:
Ol' George stopped drinkin' today
They're all gonna gather round me
Lord, I wish they could hear me say
No more income taxes
No more bills to pay
Ol' Geroge stopped drinkin' today.

Down in Mississippi
The highway patrol
Will read it in the paper
And say, God Rest his soul
No more will he wobble
Down life's highway
'Cause George stopped drinkin today.

They'll say he had a problem
Dealing with his mind
He just couldn't seem to make it
Anywhere on time
But when the roll is called up yonder
And heaven I know
You can bet the Possum is gonna show.

Chorus:
Ol' George stopped drinkin' today
They're all gonna gather round me
Lord I wish they could hear me say
No more income taxes
No more bills to pay
Ol' Geroge stopped drinkin' today.

Ol' Geroge stopped drinkin' today...
