The Man That You Once Knew

This song is by George Jones and appears on the album The Musical Loves, Life and Sorrow's of America's Great Country Star (1967).

(Written by Dallas Frazier)

If you see a man in clothes that's old and ragged
And he walks from bar to bar in worn out shoes
If people point and whisper, "God have mercy"
Would you deny the man that you once knew

If on the street I meet you with your new love
And I walk right up and say, "How do you do"
Would you turn your back and tell him you don't know me
Would you deny the love that you once knew

Would you be ashamed to remember
I'm the same man who lost ev'rything for you
If tomorrow on the street I die a beggar
Would you deny the man that you once knew

Would you deny the love that you once knew...
