“Loving You Could Never Be Better” is a song written by Earl Montgomery, Charlene Montgomery and Betty Tate, and recorded by American country music artist George Jones. It was released in April 1972 as the second single from his album George Jones (We Can Make It). The song peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. It also reached number 1 on the RPM Country Tracks chart in Canada. The song was a good example of how producer Billy Sherrill had updated the sound of Jones’ records, incorporating a laid back, R&B bass line. By drawing from such unlikely and disparate musical influences as Johann Strauss and “wall of sound” rock producer Phil Spector, he gradually began embroidering his own subtle permutations on the rather predictable fabric of country record production. “I just decided I’d do it my way, and screw ’em if they didn’t like it,” Jones biographer Bob Allen quotes Sherrill. “Back then, the musicians had their own repertoire of stock Nashville licks and chord progressions that would work on any song. But I often wanted something different, and I’d make ’em play it.”

George Jones – Loving You Could Never Be Better Lyrics

Well here we are, again, tonight alone just us two
Where the lights are dim and true love is comin’ through
There’s no one else in this whole world as far as we’re concerned
We’ve built ourself a fire, so let it burn

When you look at me like you do right now I go to pieces
Because I know what’s on your mind, it’s just me
You’ve got that love-me-look in your eyes like you’ve had so many times and how
Loving you could never be better than it is right now

Tomorrow night we’ll meet again to once more fan the flame
‘Cause loving you the way I do stays the same
This love of ours is just as strong as any vow could be
And love could never be better for you and me

When you look at me like you do right now I go to pieces
Because I know what’s on your mind, it’s just me
You’ve got that love-me-look in your eyes like you’ve had so many times and how
Loving you could never be better than it is right now
Loving you could never be better than it is right now
