George Jones - Window Up Above Lyrics

I've been living a new way
Of life that I love so
But I can see the clouds are gath'ring
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
From the window up above.

You must have thought that I was sleeping
And I wish that I had been
But I guess it's best to know you
And the way your heart can sin
I thought we belonged together
And our hearts fit like a glove
I was wrong for I've been watching
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 was wrong, I was watching
From the window up above.

How I wish I could be dreaming
And wake up to an honest love
I was wrong for I was watching
From the window up above...

    Pure country music sound. Why Fans like me truly enjoy his music though years. Still do. Throw away junk music on county music and let's bring back good country music sound. Listen all hits songs. His music live on forever and ever in are hearts. Two thumbs up. 100%. Songs I listen back 1970s and all other years pure country music songs.were very special moments.listening to radio stations.

  60. Taylor Armour

    George Jones ol buddy I love you found that my wife screwing around on me when I first got married. Guess what it's okay you all my life you still sounds good to me I was listening to you when people would say in the seventies George Who?

  61. Sandy Ellis

    Listen to uncle kracker I think he would have made Bro George happy.🎉😝😄 🆗💯%

  62. lactose

    If George were here today and auditioned for "The Voice" im sure he would be booted. Todays singers are a factory print. True talent is frowned upon in todays music. Long live the ol possom

  63. 6IX 9INE

    Best 🎶

  64. gustavo sierra

    High lonesome personified. Listen to the master..George Jones. His voice seeks out those tears like a divining rod to water....

  65. landon21108

    The goat

  66. Theresa Ford

    He had such an incredible impact on my family. My Father absolutely worshiped this man. My Dad took all of us kids to the Grand Ole Opry in the 1960s. No one has ever matched his incredible voice.

  67. charles johnson

    Words really can't describe what you are seeing and listening to here. Just stop it at the first frame. I am a photographer and this scene is perfectly composed. The music, the singer,instrumentation, perfectly orchestrated. This has always been my favorite George Jones tune and it simply couldn't be done any better than presented here.

  68. Randy Bennett

    Seen him twice. Awesome. Never be another one like possum

  69. Barb Henson

    One of my very favorite song Of George Jones!!🎶🎸🎵❤❤🦋🌹🦋🌹

  70. Bill Carter

    Don't get no better! R.I.P. Brother!

  71. Mary Shaw Roberts

    I remember singing along even tho I was too naive and young to understand the song

  72. Bessie Truesdell

    Absolutely love this song! My grandfather sung this song to my grandmother when they were kids and they are now married 58 years. When he sings it now, she blushes and smiles so big you can't help but smile as well.

  73. Granny Loca

    Every song that man did was beautiful.

  74. Darla Gaub

    I always liked Walk Through This World With Me. George was 1 of the greats.

  75. earl slot

    your heart belonged to another

  76. Armadillo

    When you listen to the Possum it's almost impossible to express in words the emotions he evokes. I knew the day would come when he would no longer be with us but it doesn't make it any easier knowing that he is gone.

  77. John Elliott

    Never be another one ☝️

  78. Stridingbeard Jack

    The possum

  79. Lena Andersson

  85. Charlotte Swincicki

    I had forgotten all about this great song.

  91. Michael Mitchell

    We know your watching your fans from the window up above. God bless and thank you possum.

  92. Jim Caudle

    He taught them all how to sing a country song. This is the best version of this song, although Mickey Gilley and Kitty Wells had great. Versions, too. Uncle Kracker finished tenth in a 5 way battle for best rendition.

  93. Taylor Armour

    Still letting it today

  94. Taylor Armour

    I was listening to George Jones and the early seventies and people would say George Who

  95. Taylor Armour

    The first bitch I was married to exactly way except I was not above the window my friends came in

  96. Alexbleks

    Is it just me, or? Every time I hear George Jones it makes me want to drink and have a good time while listening to his master pieces..

  97. Dillion Williams

    He sang from his heart and now he is watching all of his fans from the window up above.
