Song Description

A half sad, half amusing song about a person in despair finding hope through music and spirituality. Has the traditional retro "George" feel to the track.

Story Behind the Song

This song was actually written about a woman friend who had a relationship go bad and when visited for consolation, was found rotating between Whisky, Weed, George Jones' records, and the Bible to try to find relief. Sadly, the lady that inspired the song died several years later from cancer.

Lyrics

George Jones and Jesus
Dan Espedal, Bob Gentry



I?ve got this sad, sad story
It?s sad, but it?s true
I?ve emptied whisky bottles
Cryin? over you

I don?t know where I?m goin?
But I found out where to start
I let George Jones and Jesus
Mend my broken heart

Well George sang the music
And Jesus said the word
Together they?re the sweetest sound
That I?ve ever heard

So if you?re sad and lonely
And it?s tearin? you apart
Just let George Jones and Jesus
Mend your broken heart

I could not keep from cryin?
Lord, the tears ran down my face
I played ?He Stopped Lovin? Her Today?
And sang ?Amazing Grace?

I started feelin? better
Lord, I found a brand new start
I let George Jones and Jesus
Mend my broken heart

Well, George sang the music
It?s got that special sound
And Jesus?sweet Jesus
He?ll never let you down

So if you?re sad and lonely
And you need a brand new start
Just let George Jones and Jesus
Mend your broken heart

George Jones and Jesus
