Still the Same Ole Me is an album by American country music singer George Jones released in 1981 on the Epic Records label.

Still the Same Ole Me built on the massive success of Jones comeback single "He Stopped Loving Her Today" and went to number 3 on Billboard's country albums chart. "Same Ole Me", an anthem of survival and enduring love written by Paul Overstreet and featuring backing from the Oak Ridge Boys, peaked at number 2 on the charts. Even more successful was the hardcore honky tonk ballad "Still Doin' Time" ("I've been living in hell with a bar for a cell..."), which gave Jones a number one smash. The album also includes a duet with his daughter by Tammy, Georgette, on "Daddy Come Home." The album track "I Won't Need You Anymore", would become a number one hit for Randy Travis in 1987. Same Ole Me was also the title of a 1989 documentary detailing the events of Jones's life and career.

Although Jones was enjoying immense success at this time, having renegotiated his contract with CBS, he was still ravaging his body with alcohol and cocaine, and appeared frighteningly frail when he made television appearances promoting the prophetic "Someday My Day Will Come."
