My clock radio came on this morning and I reached to turn it off quickly before it woke up my Jeannie. Then I realized that its been over two years since she "left" me here alone. :(

This was the song that was playing:

He stopped loving her today

Written by R. V. Braddock and C. Putman, Jr.

He said I'll love you 'til I die

She told him you'll forget in time

As the years went slowly by

She still preyed upon his mind

He kept her picture on his wall

Went half crazy now and then

He still loved her through it all

Hoping she'd come back again

Kept some letters by his bed

Dated 1962

He had underlined in red

Every single I love you

I went to see him just today

Oh but I didn't see no tears

All dressed up to go away

First time I'd seen him smile in years


He stopped loving her today

They placed a wreath upon his door

And soon they'll carry him away

He stopped loving her today


You know she came to see him one last time

Oh and we all wondered if she would

And it kept running through my mind

This time he's over her for good

You can :Listen Here

that song brought up so many memories or both my mom and dad. i grew up listening to country music on the radio. i believe George Jones sang that song. i can hear my mom singing along to it. the other day we were out and i heard a Patsy Cline song and i started to cry. i have her cd, my mom loved her. i am 39 but know so many of the old country songs b/c of my parents. i am going to go to the site and listen to it. thanks for the memories Walt.

Thanks for sharing the beautiful song. It's still painful nearly two years later. At least here - i know people understand.

John - Dusky is my handle on here

Love you Jack
