George Jones - Tied To A Stone lyrics

Written by Max D. Barnes

I woke up this morning

And prayed to God, oh let it be a dream

Her side of the bed was cold

And layin' there beside me was her ring

With a note that she had left for me

Layin' where she used to lay her head

And I felt the world fall in on me

For this is what she said


Tied to a stone ain't no way to live

I can't go on livin' like this

I'd rather be lonely and face life alone

Than to go on this way, day after day

Tied to a stone

I always thought I gave her

Everything that any girl could want

The diamonds on her fingers

A new car and a big two-story home

Home became a prison

And lookin' back now I can see it all

Oh, I'd give the world if I could change the things

That made her climb that wall

(Repeat chorus)
