George Jones performs "I'm Not Ready Yet"

"I'm Not Ready Yet" is a song written by Tom T. Hall. It was originally released by The Blue Boys in 1968, whose version peaked at number 58 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. The song was covered by American country music artist George Jones on his 1980 album I Am What I Am. It was released in August 1980 as album's second single following the monster smash "He Stopped Loving Her Today." Jones' version peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. As Rich Kienzle observes in the liner notes to the 1994 Sony compilation The Essential George Jones: The Spirit of Country, the Hall composition "seemed to also reflect on George's mortality though Hall's lyrics weren't originally conceived that way."

George Jones - I'm Not Ready Yet Lyrics

 

Well I always said someday I was gonna leave you

Some April when all the land is wet

Some spring, summer fall or maybe winter

I'll leave someday but I'm not ready yet

Yeah now I should of left the day I knew your love was dying

But I passed up every date that I ever set

But I know I'll leave when my heart tells me it's ready

I'll leave someday, but I'm not ready yet

Yeah now I must have left you a hundred times but you don't know that

'Cause I was afraid you'd laugh when you found out just how far I'd get

But you didn't, and you don't - I know you ain't gonna ever

And someday I'll go, but I'm not ready yet

Yeah now I should of left the day I knew your love was dying

But I passed up every date that I ever set

But I know I'll leave when my heart tells me it's ready

I'll leave someday, but I'm not ready yet
