"He Stopped Loving Her Today"



Probably one of the saddest love songs recorded,
 but also one of the most beautiful love ballads...
He Stopped Loving Here Today by George Jones
A love that lasted a lifetime.




He said I'll love you 'til I die
She told him you'll forget in time



source


As the years went slowly by
She still preyed upon his mind.



source


He kept her picture on his wall
Went half crazy now and then



source

He still loved her through it all
Hoping she'd come back again.



source


He 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



source


All dressed up to go away
First time I'd seen him smile in years.



source


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



source


Ya' know she came to see him one last time
Oh, we all wondered if she would





And it kept running through my mind
This time he's over her for good.



source


He stopped loving her today


source


 They placed a wreath upon his door
And soon they'll carry him away



source


He stopped loving her today.
