You Oughta Be Here with Me is an album by American country music singer George Jones. This album was released in 1990 on Epic Records. It includes the singles "Hell Stays Open (All Night Long)" and "Six Foot Deep, Six Foot Down", neither of which charted. However, two of the album's songs — "Somebody Paints the Wall" and "Ol' Red" — were chart singles for other artists.

While none of the album's singles charted, two did for other artists. "Somebody Paints the Wall" was originally a minor country chart single in 1988 for Josh Logan from his debut album of the same name, and was later a Top Ten country hit in 1992 for Tracy Lawrence from his debut album Sticks and Stones. "Ol' Red" was later covered by Kenny Rogers on his 1993 album If Only My Heart Had a Voice, and later still by Blake Shelton on his 2001 self-titled debut. Shelton's rendition was a Top 20 on the country charts for him that year.
