As Long as I Live

George Jones

About As Long as I Live

"As Long as I Live" is a song by George Jones. It reached #3 on the Billboard country singles chart when it was released as a single on the Musicor label in 1968. An oath of love and devotion, the ballad is similar to Jones' 1967 #1 hit "Walk Through This World with Me," with a strikingly similar guitar introduction. The song was written by Roy Acuff, whose songs, many of which echoed the haunting melodies and spooky atmosphere of the old sacred hymns and Elizabethan and mountain-style ballads, had a profound impact on Jones as a child. In a 2006 interview with Ray Waddell of Billboard, Jones stated, "I loved Roy Acuff with all my heart, and I never dreamed I'd be able to meet him or see him onstage, or especially become good friends with him." The song was originally recorded by the Bailes Brothers in 1946.

I'll love you dear, as long as I live.

It was easy said the night we parted
That we'd forget we'd ever met
I haven't forgotten, I wonder if you have
Or if your heart is full of regret.

As long as I live if it be one hour
Or if it be one hundred years
I'll keep remembering forever and ever
I'll love you dear, as long as I live.

Oh, I never thought that night we parted
That life alone would be oh, so bad
I know it sounds funny but I can't forget you
You're the only joy that I've ever had.

As long as I live if it be one hour
Or if it be one hundred years
I'll keep remembering forever and ever
I'll love you dear, as long as I live.

I'll love you dear, as long as I live
