"The Right Left Hand" is a song written by Dennis Knutson and A.L. "Doodle" Owens, and recorded by American country music artist George Jones. It was released in January 1987 as the second single from his album Wine Colored Roses. The song peaked at number 8 on the BillboardHot Country Singles chart. The song is about marriage; the narrator rejoices at putting "a golden band on the right left hand" after several failed marriages. Many interpreted the song as George's tribute to his fourth wife Nancy, whom he credited with saving his life and career. Jones would not see the Top 10 again until late 1988.
