Jones, George - That's All It Took Lyrics




That's all it took the mention of your name
And all my love for you burst into flame
I've tried so hard to let you go by look
How I still tremble at your name that's all it took
That's all it took to make me know that I still care
It seems my heart just can't give up the dreams we used to share
I tell my friends I'm happy but they read me like a book
And when today I heard them say your name that's all it took
That's all it took to make me yearn to your embrace
I guess I might as well admit no one can take your place
I tell my friends I'm happy but they read me like a book
For when today I heard them say your name that's all it took
For when today I heard them say your name that's all it took

  3. jonathan stewart

    Bonnie, I remember years ago , on a Sunday my Mom came running in to tell me she had bought a George Jones Gene Pitney record with Mockingbird Hill on it. My response then was what the heck is this. Today I wish I still had some of those records.

  4. Dante Manfredi

    Perfetti...

  5. Lilmike Lilly

    Wow, love it. The king with gene,fantastic, thank you from NZ

  6. roxio rocha

    genius is hard to define

  7. Ruth Boykin

    Love this song! great that i could actually hear George Jones in this one!

  8. Milton Moore

    Hard to go wrong
    with these two!
    I have only heard a couple or so that
    I didn't care for,
    mostly because there was not enough seperation
    between the pitch
    of their voices. No
    issue like that here!

    Ruth Boykin

    It was GREAT! Thanks, Milton.

  9. Lena Andersson

    Fantastic🎤🎸💖They sing briliant❤❤❤

  10. Adam Edwards

    I actually think gene Pitney had more of a voice for country rather than pop

    Tonithenightowl

    Adam, he was a ballad singer so yes he did country well. However, since you're not a female I will forgive you for your comment. He was a pop singer for the ladies and we loved him.:o)

  11. Giuseppina Federico

    Dolcissima armonia, George e Gene fantastici, tre volte Grazie!

  12. TexasPieHole

    Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris did a great cover of this song.

  13. Karen Lindsay

    Great Great song🎤

  14. gary young

    simply brilliant

  15. 168waco

    George was the KING  Gene the prince .

    Milton Moore

    OK.....but I like
    Gene Pitney INFINITELY better
    and regret he didn't record enough solo country songs to
    get a HUGE career
    in the genre; he
    was the great country singer who never was!😢

  16. lp1330

    Fantastic!

  17. Grace Lapré

    Those are the right words: sublime harmony. Awesome

  18. Steve Thrasher

    hard to find tune. the model, obviously, for Gram and Emmylou's version. Sublime harmony.

    Carlos Lopez

    legend has it that this song was one of the first songs that Gram Parsons taught Emmylou Harris when he first sang with her in Baltimore

  19. TheLydia1011

    magic…..

  20. Wilf Mcnernie

    Gene and George together again R.I.P.
