Lewis, Jerry Lee - For The Good Times Lyrics




Don't look so sad Lord I know it's over
But honey life goes on and this old world will keep on turning
Let's just be glad we had some time to spend together
There's no need to watch the bridges that were burning
Lay your head upon my pillow hold your warm and tender body close to mine
Hear the whisper of the raindrops blowing soft against the window
And make believe you love me one more time for the good times

I'll get along (yes I will darlin') you'll find another
And I'll be here if you should find you ever need me
Don't say a word about tomorrow or forever
Honey there'll be plenty time enough for sadness when you leave me
Just your head upon my pillow hold your warm and tender body close to mine
Hear the whisper of the raindrops blowing soft Lord against ol' Jerry's window
And I make believe darlin' you love me just one more time for the good times
(Think about that baby for them old good times just one more time)

  1. Atti Malambri 001

    The best version by far by my favourite artist. His emotions are perfectly expressed by his melancholy voice..

    Wow, this one just blew my socks off. I've heard the rest of them; THIS is the best of them.

  9. phoatoh joe

    Thank God Jerry is still taboo

  10. K Eklof

    Well, Well he is the KING. he has allways been the big one to me.? I got his first record 1956, ( 45 ) and i still play it.

  11. LadyWriter 1968

    Also used to have this song by "Jim Reeves" the way Jerry sings it is so deep. The music is lovely as well. I do believe that when you sing you can put your life into a song. The voice speaks out the truth..

    Kenny Dobbins

    Jim Reeves never had a chance to sing this beautiful song, because Kris Kristofferson wrote this song and he was not even out of the Army until 1966, 2 years after he died.

    Kenny Dobbins

    Jim was long gone when this song was written. It was written by Kris Kristofferson in 1970.

    No one puts it over like the ole killer

    coachrv30

    This was a big Ray Price song - - one of his signature hits.

  12. LadyWriter 1968

  13. bill taylor

    bill taylor

    +bill taylor Arranged by Cam Mullins. Cam did the arrangement on the Ray Price version..

  14. dolleee

    This soooooong,his voice! Heartbreaking

  15. terence francis

    Hadn't heard this. Jerry's incomparable phrasing, pitch perfection, and control... 'Tis a tad heart-breaking this side of Jer isn't known equally with his boogie/rock/roots worldwide.
