"Wrong Number" is a song by American country singer George Jones. Jones composed the song with Dickie Overby. It was released as a promotional single in 1965 and rose to #14 on the Billboard country chart. The song tells the story of a man who, filled with despair, calls his former lover on the telephone because he wants to hear her voice again. However, he dares not speak: "I bite my lip till the blood runs free and kepp the words 'I love you' hidden deep, deep inside of me..." The woman assumes it is a wrong number and hangs up. Although not a major hit, "Wrong Number" is another in a long list of obscure George Jones songs that he sings, as Nick Tosches put it in the Texas Monthly in 1994, "as if his soul were on fire."
