You Couldn't Get The Picture

You Couldn't Get The Picture

George Jones

I walked through the front door
Turned the light on in the hall And then I saw the post-it notes
That she had stuck up on the wall.
The first one said, "I love you, but I can't live on love alone."

The yellow post-it-notes were stuck up everywhere
One was on the microwave and one on the Frigidaire
It said "I cried all night but you weren't there to watch the teardrops fall."
And if you couldn't get the picture Maybe you can read the writing on the wall.

Sometimes you do what you've gotta do If ya do anything at all.
Sometimes it takes a freight train comin' Sometimes it takes a mountian to fall
Sometimes you do what you've gotta do
Sometimes you gotta walk before you crawl And if you couldn't get the picture

Maybe you can read the writing on the wall. The post-it note on the pillow said,
"The lonely nights were hell" The on the mirror said, "Take a good luck at yourself"
And the one she put on the closet door Said, "I waited long enough for you to call."
And if you couldn't get the picture Maybe you can read the writing on the wall.

Sometimes you do what you've gotta do If ya do anything at all.
Sometimes it takes a freight train comin' Sometimes it takes a mountian to fall
Sometimes you do what you've gotta do Sometimes you gotta walk before you crawl
And if you couldn't get the picture Maybe you can read the writing on the wall.

And if you couldn't get the picture Maybe you can read the writing on the wall.
