The Lyrics

I had written this right after George passed, but Onslaught had submitted his, which was a tribute using the same original song..so, I held off til now....I realize it's a few weeks late, but I wanted to get it into the archives.
We knew he'd sing it till he'd die
The song we won't forget in time
Tho' the years and styles go by
It will live on in our minds

He married Tammy, you'll recall
Went half crazy now and then
Great duet for songs was all,
Found no peace till wed again

Old alcohol controlled his head
Back in 1962
Never under-wined in bed
Tammy tried, could not love two

The world of country mourns today
So many fans to shed sad tears
He's dressed up to go away
We've loved his music many years

He stopped singin' it today,
The greatest country song of all
Six men will carry him away
Since the good Lord made the call

He stopped singin' it today,
His song won all the top awards
Golden "Opry" he'll still play,
Angel chorus with harped chords

(Spoken)
Fam'ly and friends will see him one last time
Rest in peace, Old Possum should
This song is branded in our minds
He gave it everything he could..

He stopped singin' it today
'Cept on high mid Heaven's glow
He met the Reaper cloaked in gray
This time George was not "No-Show"

This time George can't be "No-Show"

Very well done, I tried writing about George but it all ended up sounding stupid to me, so I went in the direction that I did and hoped that just doing something with the song would work.

Some nifty lines here, Airfarce, esp. your third and final verses. He was a bit mainstream country for my taste, but a waggish character and institution worthy of such a tribute.
