Gene Watson - The Note Lyrics




The note was short but Lord, so strong
It simply said I can't go on
And live a lie with someone I don't love
She couldn't tell me face to face

Oh, but how my world was changed
By the hand that held the pen
That wrote the words that broke the heart
Of the one the only one that really loves her

My tears fell down like falling rain
But they can't wash away the pain
How will I go to sleep without her in my arms
She never meant to break my heart

But how my world has torn apart
By the hand that held the pen
That wrote the words that broke the heart
Of the one the only one that really loves her

With one stroke of the pen she wrote off all my dreams
Erasing all those plans we've made together
There's no one that I can blame
Oh, but how my world was changed

By the hand that held the pen
That wrote the words that broke the heart
Of the one the only one that really loves her
Of the one the only one that really loves her

  24. Dylan Wyant

    The note was short but Lord, so strong
    It simply said I can't go on
    And live a lie with someone I don't love
    She couldn't tell me face to face

    Oh, but how my world was changed
    By the hand that held the pen
    That wrote the words that broke the heart
    Of the one the only one that really loves her

    My tears fell down like falling rain
    But they can't wash away the pain
    How will I go to sleep without her in my arms
    She never meant to break my heart

    But how my world has torn apart
    By the hand that held the pen
    That wrote the words that broke the heart
    Of the one the only one that really loves her

    With one stroke of the pen she wrote off all my dreams
    Erasing all those plans we've made together
    There's no one that I can blame
    Oh, but how my world was changed

    By the hand that held the pen
    That wrote the words that broke the heart
    Of the one the only one that really loves her
    Of the one the only one that really loves her

    -----------------------
    She never meant to break my heart

    With one stroke of the pen, she wrote off all my dreams
    Erasing all those plans we've made together

    I'm the one have a explain over how
    my world became mighty hand that help the peel
    that go to world stay broken heart of the one
    The only one that really loves her.....

  29. Nedra Southworth

    I met Gene Watson in person WOW what an entertainer he is. I have been to several concerts not one half as good as Gene Watson's not George Strait not Tim Mc Graw not Vince Gill not even my favorite Mark Chesnutt.

  34. Warren Burlingame

    Wow just wow

  35. justess martin

    Tammy Wynette recorded this song on one of her last projects "Next to You" and while it was good, Gene's version overwhelms hers by hundreds of miles! Nothing against Tammy, who I love, but her voice changed and got thinner because she smoked so much so her later projects reflected that change. Gene's voice hasn't changed a bit! He can knock anything out of the ball park! Let's get this man in the Hall of Fame!

  36. Carmen Moss

    Hindi song old song

  37. Wileen Byroads

    THIS MAN CAN SING ANYTHING!

    Wileen Byroads

    WITH A BEAUTIFUL SMILE! AND BROWN EYES! LOVE THIS MAN!

  41. Bill Brown

    This person is a wonderful singer God bless

  42. Matt Beeman

    This man is well into his seventies and still has a good voice. He should be in the HOF

    Barbara Manning

    He deserves a gold bust in front of the hall of fame.

  43. ian moore

    lovely song wish he would come down under for a few concerts

  44. Mr. Wizard

  45. Mr. Wizard

    What makes me sad are those great singers who have never been discovered by the major record producers. If y'all get a chance listen to Benny Barnes on YouTube. Benny has gone to meet Jesus but he was a good old Beaumont😙😃Texas boy who sold automobiles and he owned a nightclub there in Beaumont. I cannot ever remember a fight breaking out at Benny's Club. Everybody kneweach other and made strangers feel welcome. In fact, a lot of people met their better halves at Benny's. Benny doesn't have a lot of music on YouTube but what is there I think you will like. Thanks for reading this and I wish all of you well.😘Oh by the way, Mark Chestnutt is also from Beaumont...and Tracey Byrd is from Vidor just a few miles east of Beaumont. And guess what ...Clay Walker is also from that area and he and his band played for my daughter's 14th birthday at a local skating rink on Hwy 12 before he became famous .Well I'm going to go listen to Benny for a while! Everybody have a great day.

  85. harry york

    Gene has been my favorite since I first heard his voice in the 70's and remains my favorite to this day.  I positively LOVE his songs and never get tired of listening to him sing.  I've had the privilege of seeing him in concert 18 times through the years and will continue to do so every chance I get.  He is the best voice in country music and loves and appreciates his fans.

    Mr. Wizard

    Harry I have so many favorite country singers it's unreal. there are just too many good ones for me to just have one .

    Barbara Manning

    there is no one better.

  86. Lexie Mae Matthews

    Gene sounds as good today as he did ,when I first heard him in the '70s, i fell in love with him then, but I think time has only made him better Like They Say About Wine It gets Better With time, Still love me some Gene Watson.

    Barbara Rickard

    Lexie Mae Matthews a

    Wileen Byroads

    I AGREE

    Barbara Manning

    me too.

  87. DeAnna Dee

    Such a sad song but sung so beautifully by Gene Watson!

  88. tracey johnson

    I love his music so much he can sing anything ..he is a true country artist

  89. Matt Beeman

    Daryl Singletary redid this song and knocked it out of the ballpark. 

    Lupe Dominguez

    Hey Matt, you should listen to Doug Supernaw's version. Not to take away from  Mr.Watson's version, will always love his singing but Doug did an awesome job too. On the song - When a man can't get a woman off his mind, listen to Gene then Craig Morgan. Both fantastic singers just different. Ilove them both. Check it out.

    Matt Beeman

    @Lupe Dominguez Gracias I will:)

    Donna Nash

    Matt Beeman Conway did it too!! But Gene Watson does best

    Mr. Wizard

    So did Conway Twitty Mark!!!!!!

  90. Brenda Vinesett

    More recent songs of gene watson

  91. JANET54ful

    EVERY ONE OF GENE'S SONGS WERE NUMBER ONES AND I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE AGREE.I DON'T KNOW WHY IT TOOK SO LONG FOR PEOPLE TO SEE WHAT A MARVELOUS, SINCERE ,TRUE COUNTRY AND FINE GENTLEMAN HE IS. I WISH I COULD ME HIM IN PERSON SOME DAY. HIS WIFE MUST SURE BE PROUD OF HIM, I KNOW I AM.THE BEST COUNTRY MUSIC SINGER OF ALL TIME......THE KING!!!!!!!

    Robbie Stewart

    Amen Janet

    Rodney McGee

    Janet54ful, Gene Watson has always been one of my favorites. My Mount Rushmore of traditional singers is Gene, Conway, Merle Haggard, and Charley Pride. That being said, if you look at his sales, he only had 1 huge hit. I think it was due more to the lack of marketing than lack of talent. He is one of the best vocalist ever. I live in Arizona which is just two states away from Gene yet he never comes to Arizona. We have a lot of casinos here. Charley Pride will be here in February. Gene needs to expand his route and come further west.

    Tonnie Cowles

    JANET54ful great singer for sure could listen to him all day

    Barbara Manning

    He has been married for yrs and has 2 kids. Terri is my facebook friend. I got a cd from her today. I also sing and plan to send a tape to Gene.

    Patricia Agar

    I thought he was remarried to someone else in the last few years.

  92. dale ledbetter

    watson what can i say i cant find proper words he is another master singer to say the least and so under rated he should be rated higher than a lot of the ones that are top of the list somewhere i love his great gift sing on brother im a fan to countless artist but gene watson there is none better i should know im a better

    Milo Burke

    perfect

  93. donald ray smith

    thanks ever so much for this song and video. it is a treasure to me, met Gene in late 60's, don't get much on his early carreer, but enjoy every song he sings no matter who brought it out, does anyone know how long he lived in Palestine?

  94. Orbie Olsson

    I'm still thanking you for this post! Norita

  95. Daniel Delaney

    thanks for the bio. I grew up in Tyler just about 60 miles up the road from his home town. Wonder if he sang in Palestine growing up?
