George Jones

George Glenn Jones (born September 12, 1931) is an American country music singer known for his long list of hit records, his distinctive voice and phrasing, and his marriage to Tammy Wynette. more »

He kisses her goodbye, and heads for the radio station.
Oh, he hates to leave her, but he's got another show to do.
He knows she gets lonely, so he lets her know that he's thinking about her.
And though millions are listening, she knows who he's talking to.

[Chorus]
Comin' to you live like I do every night
From the heart of your radio.
I play a little sad, and I play a lotta glad.
And a few ol' cheatin' songs.

Here's hopin' everybody out in radio land
Found a love just as true as mine
Good night angel, sleep tight darlin'
Close your pretty brown eyes.

When the show is over,
Your radio lover
Will be home by your side.

She's laying in bed as her DJ tells her that he loves her.
It would break his heart if he knew she wasn't there alone.
She knows when to cheat and when to tell her lover to leave her.
She knows they'll be safe just as long as his show goes on.

He planned a surprise for the night of their first anniversary.
He taped his show just so he could be home.
The radio was playing and, as he walked in on her and her lover,
He heard himself saying the last words that they ever heard.
