“Her Name Is” is a country song written by Bobby Braddock and made famous by George Jones. It reached No. 3 on the Hot Country Songs in 1976.

The song’s electric clavinet solo was played by Nashville session musician Hargus “Pig” Robbins. Part of the song’s success may have been that fans assumed George was singing about ex-wife Tammy Wynette; indeed, in the liner notes to the Jones retrospective Anniversary – 10 Years of Hits, producer Billy Sherrill confirms that song was “about Tammy.” In his 1995 memoir, Jones wryly remarked, “The public believed I was singing about Tammy. Several reporters asked if that were true. I purposely hedged on the question. I was ready to let people think whatever they wanted to think if it might sell a few records. I needed the money to pay child support to Tammy.”

George Jones – Her Name Is lyrics

Oh, I love her and just can’t live without her
And I’ve got the urge to tell the world about her
But our love’s a secret and can’t see the light of day
But I went and wrote this love song anyway

Her name is, her eyes are
Her hair is just like, and she measures
But someday I’ll fill in the lines when she and I are free
And we’ll walk in the sunshine and me

Oh, it really is a scandal and disgrace
To have to call your woman what’s-her-face
But her husband thinks he owns her heart and soul for life
And he’ll kill the man who messes with his wife

Her name is, her eyes are
Her hair is just like, and she measures
But someday I’ll fill in the lines when she and I are free
And we’ll walk in the sunshine and me

Yes, someday I’ll fill in the lines when she and I are free
And we’ll walk in the sunshine and me

Her name is
