    George Jones performing He Stopped Loving Her Today

    Lyrics:
    He said I'll love you till I die, she told him You'll forget in time
    As the years went slowly by, she still preyed upon his mind
    He kept her picture on his wall, went half-crazy now and then
    He still loved her through it all, hoping she'd come back again
    Kept some letters by his bed dated nineteen sixty-two
    He had underlined in red every single I love you
    I went to see him just today, oh but I didn't see no tears
    All dressed up to go away, first time I'd seen him smile in years
    He stopped loving her today
    They placed a wreath upon his door
    And soon they'll carry him away
    He stopped loving her today
    You know, she came to see him one last time
    Aww, 'n' we all wondered if she would
    And it kept runnin' through my mind this time he's over her for good
    He stopped loving her today
    They placed a wreath upon his door
    And soon they'll carry him away
    He stopped loving her today

    Album: A Picture of Me (Without You)
    Utgitt: 1972
    Låtskrivere: George Richey / Norris D Wilson.
    Labels: Epic

    A Picture of Me (Without You) is an album by American country music singer George Jones. It was released in 1972 on the Epic Records label.

    Jones's second solo recording on Epic is one of five albums released by the singer in 1972 (three of his own and two duet albums with his wife Tammy Wynette) as producer Billy Sherrill wasted no time in flooding the market with new recordings by the Possum. Jones's first album, George Jones (We Can Make It), made it to number 10 on the country albums charts but his second effort did better, rising to number three and featuring songs with a wider range of themes than those found on his Epic debut, which celebrated the happiness of new love. The album's title track was the only single release from it, peaking at #5 on the Billboard country singles charts.

    ***

    A Picture of Me (Without You) is a country music song written by Norro Wilson and George Richey.According to Rich Kienzle's liner notes for the 1994 Sony retrospective The Essential George Jones: The Spirit of Country, the song was written specifically for Jones with co-writer Norro Wilson singing the song for George imitating the Jones style to show how he wanted it sung. Even with the string arrangement, the country feel remained undiminished. The song is similar to an older Webb Pierce song called That's Me Without You. It was originally recorded by George Jones, whose version peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart in 1972. In his 1995 autobiography I Lived to Tell It All, Jones quoted lines from the song to describe his own sadness at the passing of his brother-in-law W.T. Dub Scroggins in 1993.

    The song was covered by Lorrie Morgan on her 1991 album Something in Red. Morgan's version was released as the album's second single in June 1991 and reached #9 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart in November 1991.

    George Glenn Jones (September 12, 1931 – April 26, 2013) was an American musician, singer and songwriter. He achieved international fame for his long list of hit records, including his best known song He Stopped Loving Her Today, as well as his distinctive voice and phrasing. For the last twenty years of his life, Jones was frequently referred to as the greatest living country singer.[1][2] Country music scholar Bill Malone writes, For the two or three minutes consumed by a song, Jones immerses himself so completely in its lyrics, and in the mood it conveys, that the listener can scarcely avoid becoming similarly involved. Waylon Jennings expressed a similar opinion in his song It's Alright: If we all could sound like we wanted to, we'd all sound like George Jones. The shape of his nose and facial features earned Jones the nickname The Possum.[3]

    Born in Texas, Jones first heard country music when he was seven and was given a guitar at the age of nine. He married his first wife, Dorothy Bonvillion, in 1950, and was divorced in 1951. He served in the United States Marine Corps and was discharged in 1953. He married Shirley Ann Corley in 1954. In 1959, Jones recorded White Lightning, written by J. P. Richardson, which launched his career as a singer. His second marriage ended in divorce in 1968; he married fellow country music singer Tammy Wynette a year later. Years of alcoholism compromised his health and led to his missing many performances, earning him the nickname No Show Jones.[4] After his divorce from Wynette in 1975, Jones married his fourth wife, Nancy Sepulvado, in 1983 and became sober for good in 1999. Jones died in 2013, aged 81, from hypoxic respiratory failure.

    Lyrics:
    Imagine a world where no music was playing
    Then think of a church with nobody praying
    If you ever looked up at a sky with no blue
    Then you've seen a picture of me without you
    Have you walked in a garden where nothing was growing
    Or stood by a river where nothing was flowing
    If you've seen a red rose unkissed by the dew
    Then you've seen a picture of me without you
    Can you picture Heaven with no angels singing
    Or a quiet Sunday morning with no church bells ringing
    If you've watched as the heart of a child breaks in two
    Then you've seen a picture of me without you

    She's Mine is a song by George Jones. It was composed by Jones and Jack Ripley. Jones had already cut it for United Artists earlier in the decade but a new version was released as a single in 1969 on the Musicor label and rose to #6 on the Billboard country singles chart. The song seemingly describes the feelings of a man towards a woman, presumably his wife, who no longer loves him, but he feels satisfied just having her around. As the song concludes, however, it has a surprise ending. It became yet another Top 10 hit for Jones, who had been a constant presence on the country charts throughout most of the decade.
    ***

    I Get Lonely in a Hurry is an album by George Jones, released on United Artists Records in 1964.

    Background
    The album marks the first appearance of The Race Is On, which later became one of Jones's biggest hits and remained a concert staple throughout his long career. According to Bob Allen's book George Jones: The Life and Times of a Honky Tonk Legend, Don Rollins composed the song one day after visiting the Turf Paradise Race Track in Phoenix, Arizona.[citation needed] It features tongue-twisting lyrics that use the fast-paced images of a horse race to describe a broken relationship.[citation needed] Allen writes of Jones's memorable vocal: By gleefully bending and stretching the notes and singing, at times, slightly ahead of or behind the song's fast-clipped meter, he embellished it with a subtle sense of tension and release that perfectly complemented the rapid-fire cascading effect of the song's lyrics.[citation needed] The album also contains She's Mine, which would become a top ten hit for Jones on Musicor in 1969[citation needed], and Love's Gonna Live Here, a 1962 song written and popularized by Buck Owens, who was one of the few country singers who rivalled Jones's success in the 1960s.[citation needed] Book of Memories is a cover of the Charlie Louvin song, My Book of Memories released earlier in 1964. Least of All was originally recorded by Sonny James earlier in 1964 as Least of All You. Holiday for Love was originally recorded by Webb Pierce in 1957.


    Lyrics:
    I won't say that I'm the only one who loves her
    And I won't say I make her happy all the time
    There's someone she can't forget
    I know she never will, and yet
    But as far as my heart's concerned, she's mine
    She never once has told me that she needs me
    And she forgets when I'm around her all the time
    There are words I try to say
    When she turns and walks away
    But as far as my heart's concerned, she's mine
    She's mine and yet I know someday I'll lose her
    But she'll never take this happiness I've found
    And I know it may sound foolish when I tell you
    That I'm satisfied just having her around
    Even when she's in my arms I know she's lonely
    I wish that I could take that someone from her mind
    But since her mother left our world
    She's been daddy's little girl
    She's a baby, I'm her daddy, and she's mine

    Lyrics
    Hey George, did you know Waylon and Willie?
    The outlaws, I didn't know that at all
    Did you know Roger was king of the road?
    You got it Possum
    Everyone knows Hank's been in prison
    We didn't know that
    And Dolly's got two big reasons she's well known
    They call me No Show Jones
    They call me No Show Jones
    Still I'm never on
    Still never on
    Instead of just singin' my songs, my whereabouts are unknown
    They call me No Show Jones
    They call me No Show Jones
    Here's [Incomprehensible]Loretta is [Incomprehensible] daughter
    Ah, she's mighty pretty son
    Johnny wears black, his tans all along
    Boy, that's lonesome
    Everyone knows Kenny is a gambler
    I didn't know that at all
    About Tammy
    Tammy had some kind excuse, she divorced George Jones
    They call me No Show, they call me No Show Jones
    I'm still never on
    I'm still never on
    Instead of just singin' my songs, my whereabouts are unknown
    They call me No Show Jones
    They call me No Show Jones
    They call me No Show, they call me No Show Jones
    I'm still never on
    On what?
    The stage
    Singin' my songs, the whereabouts are unknown
    They call me No Show Jones
    They call me No Show Jones

    Ol' Red is a song written by James Bo Bohan, Don Goodman and Mark Sherrill. The song was originally recorded by George Jones on his 1990 album You Oughta Be Here with Me.

    The song's narrator is a prisoner serving time for committing a crime of passion when he murdered a man whom his wife was having an affair with. He is offered a job to take care of the prison dog named Ol' Red, a Redbone Coonhound who is well-known among the inmates for his skill at tracking escaped prisoners.

    The narrator writes a letter to his cousin, who sends down an unnamed female Bluetick Coonhound, who then befriends Ol' Red. The narrator keeps Ol' Red away from the Bluetick for several days, deliberately making Red anxious to see her. The narrator then makes his escape attempt, knowing that Red will track down the Bluetick instead. The final lyrics of the song reveal that the escape was successful, and Red and the Bluetick having a litter of puppies to boot.

    The Bradley Barn Sessions is a duet album released in 1994 by American country music artist George Jones.
    ***

    George Jones' spirited reading of J.P. Richardson (aka the Big Bopper)'s White Lightning was his first country #1. The song was recorded only one week after Jones' good friend Richardson's tragic death in the airplane crash that also killed Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens.
    Produced by Buddy Killen, thanks to Jones drinking, it took over 80 takes to get the recording right. The country star recalled in his 1997 memoir, I Lived to Tell It All: I was drinking heavily throughout the session, and Killen later said we did 83 takes before we got one we could use, Jones wrote.

    Killen said he wore the skin off his fingers playing that same opening, and had to wear Band-Aids to cover raw blisters. Years later he said he could still remember the pain from playing that kick-off over and over the stiff, woven-wire strings of an upright bass.
    ***
    Recording
    The concept behind The Bradley Barn Sessions was to place Jones in the hands of traditionalist country producer Brian Ahern, record at Owen Bradley's legendary studios, compile a selection of the singer's greatest hits, and have him sing duets with not just some of the biggest names in country but also pop music as well. Although the album - Jones fourth for MCA - did not break the top twenty on Billboards country albums chart, peaking at 23, it features the first recorded duet between the singer and his ex-wife Tammy Wynette since their 1981 LP Together Again. The only single release from the album was A Good Year For The Roses, a collaboration with Alan Jackson. As Jones noted in his autobiography two years later, After the duets album was released, radio didn't know what to do with it...Alan was white-hot on the radio, and programmers wanted his voice. But some didn't want his if they had to take mine. The vast majority of Alan's other single records have gone to number one. His duet with me was his first not to crack the top 50. It actually peaked at number 57. In June 1995, the song won the Music City News Country Awards Vocal Collaboration of the Year.

    LYRICS
    Well, in the North of Carolina, way back in the hills
    Me and my old pappy and he had him a still
    He brewed white lightnin' till the sun went down
    And then you'd fill him a jug and he'd pass it around
    Mighty, mighty pleasin', pappy's corn squeezin'
    Ssh, white lightning
    Well, the G men, T men, revenuers, too
    Searchin' for the place where he made his brew
    They were looking, tryin to book him, but my pappy kept on cookin'
    Phoo, white lightning
    Well, I asked my old pappy why he called his brew
    White lightning 'stead of mountain dew
    I took a little sip and right away I knew
    As my eyes bugged out and my face turned blue
    Lightning started flashin', thunder started clashin'
    Fshhh, white lightnin'
    Well, the G men, T men, revenuers, too
    Searchin' for the place where he made his brew
    They were looking, tryin to book him but my pappy kept on cookin'
    Whshh, white lightning
    Well, a city slicker came and he said I'm tough
    I think I want to taste that powerful stuff
    He took one s-slug and drank it right down
    And I heard him a-moaning as he hit the ground
    Mighty, mighty pleasin', your pappy's corn squeezin'
    Sshoo, white lightning
    The G men, T men, revenuers, too
    Searchin' for the place where he made his brew
    They were looking, tryin' to book him but my pappy kept on cookin'
    Sshoo, white lightning

    Shine On is an album by American country music artist George Jones, released in 1983 on the Epic Records label.

    Background
    Shine On was Jones's sixth album in three years, a prolific comeback that had been spearheaded by his 1980 single He Stopped Loving Her Today. His chart success continued unabated in March 1983, with the album producing what turned out to be his last number one song I Always Get Lucky With You. Tennessee Whiskey and the title track were also top five hits. The most remarkable thing about Jones during this period, considering how he had been abusing himself with alcohol and drugs, is how his voice did not give out on him; in fact, many believe his singing was at its zenith and, judging by the performances on Shine On (which peaked at number 7), he remained remarkably engaged. His performance on the Bobby Braddock song She Hung The Moon in particular is virtuosic, with producer Billy Sherrill providing a musical tapestry for the track that brings Frank Sinatra to mind (in an often-quoted tribute, Sinatra called Jones the second best singer in America). The album is also notable for the novelty Ol' George Stopped Drinkin' Today, which - in addition to punning Jones's most famous song's title - pokes fun at his notorious reputation, much like his duet with Merle Haggard, No Show Jones, did the year before.

    Shine On (Shine All Your Sweet Love on Me) is a song written by Johnny MacRae and Bob Morrison, and recorded by American country music artist George Jones. It was released in January 1983 as the first single from his album Shine On. The song peaked at number 3 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. Shine On was Jones' sixth Top 10 solo hit in less than three years. The song also displayed some of the pop elements that producer Billy Sherrill would introduce into George's sound over the course of his next few albums.

    George Glenn Jones (September 12, 1931 – April 26, 2013) was an American musician, singer and songwriter. He achieved international fame for his long list of hit records, including his best known song He Stopped Loving Her Today, as well as his distinctive voice and phrasing. For the last twenty years of his life, Jones was frequently referred to as the greatest living country singer. Country music scholar Bill Malone writes, For the two or three minutes consumed by a song, Jones immerses himself so completely in its lyrics, and in the mood it conveys, that the listener can scarcely avoid becoming similarly involved. Waylon Jennings expressed a similar opinion in his song It's Alright: If we all could sound like we wanted to, we'd all sound like George Jones. The shape of his nose and facial features earned Jones the nickname The Possum.

    Born in Texas, Jones first heard country music when he was seven and was given a guitar at the age of nine. He married his first wife, Dorothy Bonvillion, in 1950, and was divorced in 1951. He served in the United States Marine Corps and was discharged in 1953. He married Shirley Ann Corley in 1954. In 1959, Jones recorded White Lightning, written by J. P. Richardson, which launched his career as a singer. His second marriage ended in divorce in 1968; he married fellow country music singer Tammy Wynette a year later. Years of alcoholism compromised his health and led to his missing many performances, earning him the nickname No Show Jones.[4] After his divorce from Wynette in 1975, Jones married his fourth wife, Nancy Sepulvado, in 1983 and became sober for good in 1999. Jones died in 2013, aged 81, from hypoxic respiratory failure.

    During his career, Jones had more than 150 hits, both as a solo artist and in duets with other artists. Robert Christgau has called him honky-tonk's greatest honky.

    Lyrics:
    She'll never grace the centerfold of Playboy magazine
    And chances are you'll never see her on the silver screen
    She's by far the biggest star the world will never see
    But she don't shine for the rest of the world
    She's too busy shinin' on me.

    Shine on, shine on,
    Shine on though the world may never see
    Oh my baby won't you, shine on, shine on,
    Shine all your sweet love on me.

    --- Instrumental ---

    She won't be asked for autographs like all the movie stars
    She won't wear Paris fashions or ride in chauffeured cars
    But in her jeans she's the sexy dream that they'd all like to be
    But she don't shine for the rest of the world
    She's too busy shinin' on me.

    Shine on, shine on,
    Shine on though the world may never see
    Oh my baby won't you, shine on, shine on,
    Shine all your sweet love on me.

    Shine all your sweet love on me...

    Just because I'm not the happy guy I used to be

    But if she's happy thinkin' I still need her
    Then let that silly notion bring her cheer
    But how could she ever be so foolish
    Oh where would she get such an idea

    Just because I saw her then went all to pieces

    The Johnny Cash Show was an American television music variety show hosted by Johnny Cash. The Screen Gems 58-episode series ran from June 7, 1969 to March 31, 1971 on ABC; it was taped at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee. The show reached No. 17 in the Nielsen ratings in 1970.[1]

    Cash opened each show, invariably preceding the first number with his customary Hello, I'm Johnny Cash greeting, and its regulars included members of his touring troupe, June Carter Cash (his wife) and the Carter Family, The Statler Brothers, Carl Perkins, and The Tennessee Three, with Australian-born musical director-arranger-conductor Bill Walker. The Statler Brothers performed brief comic interludes. An instrumental version of Folsom Prison Blues was used for the opening credits.

    It featured many folk-country musicians, such as Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Linda Ronstadt, Kris Kristofferson, Mickey Newbury, Neil Young, Gordon Lightfoot, Merle Haggard, James Taylor and Tammy Wynette. It also featured other musicians such as jazz great Louis Armstrong, who died eight months after appearing on the show.

    Love Bug
    Oh, that little bitty teeny weeny thing they call the lovebug.
    Nobody's ever seen it, but it's got the whole world shook up.
    It all started with a little bitty kiss and a hug.
    It's a little bitty teeny weeny thing they call the lovebug.

    Well, I was ruling the roost, had all the chicks to myself.
    And suddenly it happened, that funny little feeling I felt.
    Well, I tried to outrun it, but it finally caught up with me.
    Tell me how can I run from something that I can't see?

    I feel tears wellin' up cold and deep inside
    Like my heart's sprung a big break
    And the stab of loneliness, sharp and painful
    That I may never shake
    Now you might say that I was taking it hard
    Since you wrote me off with a call
    But don't you wager that I'll hide the sorrow
    When I may break right down and bawl

    The Race Is On
    Now the race is on and here comes pride up the backstretch
    Heartaches are going to the inside
    My tears are holding back
    They're trying not to fall
    My heart's out of the running
    True love's scratched for another's sake
    The race is on and it looks like heartaches
    And the winner loses all

    I feel tears wellin' up cold and deep inside
    Like my heart's sprung a big break
    And the stab of loneliness, sharp and painful
    That I may never shake
    Now you might say that I was taking it hard
    Since you wrote me off with a call
    But don't you wager that I'll hide the sorrow
    When I may break right down and bawl

    Producer – Billy Sherrill

    The Door is a song written by Billy Sherrill and Norro Wilson, and recorded by American country music artist George Jones. It was released in October 1974 as the first single from the album The Best of George Jones. The Door was George Jones' sixth number one on the country chart as a solo artist. The single stayed a single week at number one and would spend a total of ten weeks on the country chart.

    The Best of George Jones is an album by American country music artist George Jones. It is notable for including two new songs, including The Door, which became a #1 country hit.

    Background
    Although a plethora of greatest hits packages had been released under Jones' name on Mercury, United Artists, and Musicor, The Best of George Jones was the first compilation of his hits with Epic and his new producer Billy Sherrill. The release may have been prompted by the turmoil in the singer's personal life; his third marriage to Tammy Wynette had ended in divorce earlier in the year and his own erratic behaviour, spurred on by a legendary drinking problem, was worsening. However, he had scored his first #1 hit in seven years with The Grand Tour and followed this with a second chart topper, The Door, which became the opening track on The Best of George Jones. Another single written by Jones and Wynette, These Days (I Barely Get By), was also released as a single and reached #10. The album cover features a photograph of Jones as a child busking on the streets of Beaumont.

    Lyrics
    I've heard the sound of my dear old momma crying
    And the sound of the train that took me off to war
    And the awful sound of a thousand bombs exploding
    And I wondered if I could take it anymore
    There were times when they almost drove me crazy
    But I did my best, I took it like a man
    But who would think in my lonely room I'd hear it
    The one sound in the world my heart can't stand
    To hear that sound and to know its really over
    Through tear-stained eyes I watched her walk away
    And of earthquakes, storms and guns and wars
    Lord, nothing has ever hurt me more than that lonely sound
    The closing of the door
    And of earthquakes, storms and guns and wars
    Lord nothing has ever hurt me more than that lonely sound
    The closing of the door

    Treasure of Love is a song by George Jones. It was released as a single on Mercury Records and reached No. 6 on the US country chart in 1958.
    Jones composed Treasure of Love with J. P. Richardson, better known as the Big Bopper, who also wrote Jones' first No. 1 country hit White Lightning. Jones biographer Bob Allen describes Jones' languid, drawling singing as more reminiscent of the diphthong-twisting style of Oklahoma honky-tonk king Hank Thompson than anything he'd ever recorded.[2] The single's B-side, If I Don't Love You (Grits Ain't Groceries), became a minor hit, peaking at No. 29 on the charts

    Lyrics:
    I've got a pocket full of pennies the heart full of gold
    Though my troubles are many I have treasures untold
    And the shack that I live in is a palace to me
    For the treasure of love the treasure of love you gave to me
    In this world there are riches that money can't buy
    Like the treasure of true love a love that won't die
    So why should I worry what tomorrow will bring
    For the treasure of love the treasure of love makes me a king
    Though my clothes are all tattered and I've seen better days
    Know it really don't matter for I'm rich another way
    Yes my pockets are empty but still wealthy I'll be
    With the treasure of love the treasure of love you gave to me

    Lyrics:

    He said I'll love you til I die
    She told him you'll forget in time
    As the years went slowly by
    She still preyed upon his mind

    He kept her pictures on his wall
    Went half crazy now and then
    But he still loved her through it all
    Hoping she'd come back again

    Kept some letters by his bed
    Dated 1962
    He had underlined in red
    Every single I love you

    I went to see him just today
    Oh but I didn't see no tears
    All dressed up to go away
    First time I'd seen him smile in years

    He stopped loving her today
    They placed a wreath upon his door
    And soon they'll carry him away
    He stopped loving her today

    You know she came to see him one last time
    Oh, we all wondered if she would
    And it kept running through my mind
    Well, this time he's over her for good

    He stopped loving her today
    They placed a wreath upon his door
    And soon they'll carry him away
    He stopped loving her today

    You Comb Her Hair is a song by George Jones. It was released as a single in 1963 and reached number five on the Billboard country singles chart. It was written by Hank Cochran and Harlan Howard. The song, an ode of love and devotion from a father to his daughter, was typical of Jones's releases during this period. In a 1994 article by Nick Tosches for the Texas Monthly, Jones confessed that he regarded the early sixties as his finest period, stating, We did a lot of the pure country then. Johnny Cash recorded the song for his 1966 album Happiness Is You.

    I'll tell you about her for you ought to know
    You comb her hair every mornin'
    And make sure she dresses just right
    You comb her hair every mornin'
    And put her to bed every night
    When she's around me sometimes I can hardly speak
    I stammer and I walk right into doors
    And just to hold her hand in mine makes me feel weak
    Oh, you know her honey, she's a friend of yours
    You comb her hair every mornin'
    And make sure she dresses just right
    You comb her hair every mornin'
    And put her to bed every night

    1:58

    Album: I Get Lonely in a Hurry
    Utgitt: 1964
    Writer(s): Don Rollins
    Label: United Artists Records ‎

    The Race Is On is a song written by Don Rollins[1] and made a hit on the country music charts by George Jones and on the pop and easy listening charts by the unrelated Jack Jones. (This is not the Don Rollins who co-wrote It's Five O'Clock Somewhere for Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett.) George's version was the first single released from his 1965 album of the same name. Released as a single in September 1964, it peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart and at number 96 on the Billboard Hot 100 in January 1965. Jack's version topped Billboard's Easy Listening chart and reached number 15 on the Hot 100 the same year. The two recordings combined to reach number 12 on the Cashbox charts, which combined all covers of the same song in one listing and thus gave George Jones his only top-40 hit. The song uses thoroughbred horse racing as the metaphor for the singer's romantic relationships.

    I Get Lonely in a Hurry is an album by George Jones, released on United Artists Records in 1964.
    Background
    The album marks the first appearance of The Race Is On, which later became one of Jones's biggest hits and remained a concert staple throughout his long career. According to Bob Allen's book George Jones: The Life and Times of a Honky Tonk Legend, Don Rollins composed the song one day after visiting the Turf Paradise Race Track in Phoenix, Arizona.[citation needed] It features tongue-twisting lyrics that use the fast-paced images of a horse race to describe a broken relationship.[citation needed] Allen writes of Jones's memorable vocal: By gleefully bending and stretching the notes and singing, at times, slightly ahead of or behind the song's fast-clipped meter, he embellished it with a subtle sense of tension and release that perfectly complemented the rapid-fire cascading effect of the song's lyrics.[citation needed] The album also contains She's Mine, which would become a top ten hit for Jones on Musicor in 1969[citation needed], and Love's Gonna Live Here, a 1962 song written and popularized by Buck Owens, who was one of the few country singers who rivalled Jones's success in the 1960s.[citation needed] Book of Memories is a cover of the Charlie Louvin song, My Book of Memories released earlier in 1964. Least of All was originally recorded by Sonny James earlier in 1964 as Least of All You. Holiday for Love was originally recorded by Webb Pierce in 1957.

    I feel tears wellin' up cold and deep inside
    Like my heart's sprung a big leak
    And a stab of loneliness sharp and painful
    That I may never shake
    You might say that I was taking it hard
    Since you wrote me off with a call
    But don't you wager that I'll hide in sorrow
    When I may lay right down and bawl
    Now the race is on
    And here comes pride in the backstretch
    Heartaches goin' to the inside
    My tears are holdin' back, they're tryin' not to fall
    My hearts out of the runnin'
    True love's scratched for another's sake
    The race is on and it looks like heartaches
    And the winner loses all
    One day I'd ventured in love
    Never once suspectin' what the final result would be
    And how I lived in fear of waking up each morning
    Thinking that you gone from me
    There's ache and pain in my heart
    For today was the one that I hated to face
    Somebody new came up to win her
    I came out in second place
    Well the race is on
    And here comes pride in the backstretch
    Heartaches goin' to the inside
    My tears are holdin' back, they're tryin' not to fall
    My hearts out of the runnin'
    True love's scratched for another's sake
    The race is on and it looks like heartaches
