THE VISIT (1993)
George Jones (3’23)

Written by: Gene Ellsworth/Brad Rodgers/Charles Stefl
Album: High-Tech Redneck


Sorry I’m so late
But I’ve been out a-walkin’
Tryin’ to find a way to tell you
But I think you already know

I never want to hurt you
‘Cause darlin’ I still love you
But things aren’t like they used to be
It’s time for lettin’ go

I wasn’t out there lookin’
But a month ago last Sunday
I met someone just like you
In line at the grocery store

We’ve been spendin’ time together
Yea, she knows all about you
The truth is
She can give me
What you can’t anymore

I know I promised you forever
I never thought I’d see this day
If only I could write the pages
Our story wouldn’t end this way

I feel so much better
Knowing we could have this moment
But it looks like
It’s may rain soon
And it’s getting’ kinda late

Hon’ I’ll always bring you roses
Every time I come to visit
The caretaker’s waiting
They want to close the cave

I know I promised you forever
I never thought I’d see this day
If only I could write the pages
Our story wouldn’t end this way
It wouldn’t end this way
