"A Picture of Me (Without You)" is a country music song written by Norro Wilson and George Richey. It was originally recorded by George Jones, whose version peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart in 1972. The song was covered by Lorrie Morgan on her 1991 album Something in Red. Morgan's version was released as the album's second single in June 1991 and reached #9 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart in November 1991.[1]

Content[edit]

The narrator tells his lover to imagine incomplete things, like "a world where no music is playing, a church where nobody's praying, a sky with no blue", and by seeing this, she can see his picture without her by his side. The song is similar to an older Webb Pierce song called "That's Me Without You".
