Sunday Morning Coming Down

It’s been a while since George Jones featured around these parts, so we’ll put that right this morning.

As the title of the album this is lifted from suggests, this is a Country standard which has been covered many times over the years. The best known version was cut by Guy Mitchell back in 1959, but was not the original, which was recorded by Ray Price slightly earlier than Mitchell’s version.

Since then, it’s been covered by the likes of Kitty Wells, Connie Francis, Bing Crosby, Burl Ives, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Jerry Lee Lewis, Dwight Yoakam, Rosanna Cash, Cyndi Lauper and Martina McBride to name just a few.

You can’t beat a bit of George Jones on a Sunday morning though, can you?

  1. Nice enough to listen to George Jones’ version, but it’s too up-tempo to be in the same league as Ray Price’s never mind Dwight’s.
