About I Won't Come in While He's There

"I Won't Come In While He's There" is a 1967 posthumous single by Jim Reeves, recorded in the RCA Victor studios in Nashville, Tennessee on May 18, 1964. It was one of the last songs Reeves recorded before his premature death on July 31st; the flip side of the single, "Maureen", was the very last (recorded July 2, 1964). The single was Reeves' sixth and final posthumous release to hit number one on the U. S. country chart. "I Won't Come In While He's There" spent a single week at number one and total of twelve weeks on the country chart. The piano backing is a strong feature of the recording; interestingly, although it sounds like Floyd Cramer's characteristic style, and Cramer was Reeves' usual pianist, in this case the player was in fact the famous blind pianist Hargus 'Pig' Robbins.

Thought I'd stop by awhile and see you
Just once more before I leave town
But his car's parked there in your driveway
And I see the curtain's pulled down
I won't bother to ring your doorbell
I'm not sure just how much I can bear
I might do something I'd be sorry for later
So I won't come in while he's there
Does he know my whole world is in there with him
That he's king while he sits there in my chair
I'd like to tell you just how much I still love you
But I won't come in while he's there
No I won't come in while he's there
