Hits by George is a greatest hits album by American country music artist George Jones released in 1967 on the Musicor Records label.


Hits By George includes mostly remakes of songs from earlier in Jones's career, including the number one hits "White Lightnin'" and "She Thinks I Still Care". Part of the motivation for the release may have been the number of Jones releases that were still being issued by the singer's former record label Mercury Records, which owned the rights to masters that dated all the way back to mid-1950s. It continued Jones's string of top ten albums, reaching number 9.
