Jones, George - Writing On The Wall Lyrics




She was holding back the tears
As I packed up the last few years
And said, "I'm tired of being so tied down"
I'm sure the kids will understand
That daddy's making other plans
I grab my bags and I was freedom bound

And then I saw the writing on the wall
It said, "We love you daddy most of all"
There in purple crayons, scribbled knee high in the hall
I saw the writing on the wall

When the [?] wore off, of being free
Their memories started haunting me
I headed home as fast as I could go
My keys still fit that same ol' door
But no one lived there anymore
And that tender message made my tear drops flow

And then I saw the writing on the wall
It said, "We love you daddy most of all"
There in purple crayons, scribbled knee high in the hall
I saw the writing on the wall, I saw the writing on the wall

    I love this song RIP George.

  2. superchef78

    How on earth could anyone sing the word “tears” like that? Now that’s country! Maybe George Strait.

  3. JAMES BURKLEY

    GEORGE WILL ALWAYS BE THE KING OF COUNTRY MUSIC.

  4. Josh Echols

    Every time I think I hear how he’ll sing a line, he throws me off with his exquisite phrasing! Greatest country singer ever.
