The Window Up Above
George Jones Lyrics


I've been living a new way
Of life that I love so
But I can see the clouds are gathering
And the storm will wreck our home

For last night he held you tightly
And you didn't even shove
This is true for I've been watching (watching you)
From the window up above
You must have thought that I was sleeping
And I wish that I had been
But it's guess to get to know you
And the way your heart can sin

I thought we belonged together
And our hearts fit like a glove
But I was wrong for I've been watching (watching you)
From the window up above

From my eyes the teardrops started
As I listened on and on
I heard you whisper to him softly
That our marriage was all wrong

But I hope he makes you happy
And you will never lose his love
I lost mine while I was watching (watching you)
From the window up above

How I wish I could be dreaming
And wake up to an honest love that's true
But I'm wrong for I've been watching (watching you)
From the window up above

Dovie Morris I remember playing with my army men and Tonkas and dads old am light squeal radio..Which still works And the sound of him popping tops on old mil singing alone...he worked his ass off all he needed was his shop with an icebox but I was always listening I still listening

Adrian Gonzales

Never, never in this time or in another era will there be another giant like George Jones .

Arthur Stirling

@Dennis Mosley lets just thank god for giving us hank to give us real country music so george could carry it on .Fate is an amazing thing

Dennis Mosley

With all due respect to Hank Sr. As a songwriter he was better than Jones but as a singer not even in the same ballpark. The Possum was in a Class all by himself as a singer. No one could ever sway me on that. He had ungodly talent.

Cordis LaRocque

Absolutely
