 I Dont Even Try  John Hiatt
















I [1]thought I had your number


There [1]must be some mistake


I dialed [1]6 3 7 E[4]leven Eighty-[1]eight


I [1]got some geezer said his [1]girlfriend's on the town


         1                         |4                 1    |


I said I got the wrong number and I slammed the phone down


      4                           |b7          4


Thot about it for a minute til the anger went away


        |1                         |4        1   |


I figure ev'ry dog in town is gonna have his day


4                             |b7             4


I could count the teardrops or I could wonder why


      |1                        |4            1      |


Well I used to be your lover now I don't even try


It was champagne parties and sweet love scenes


Now it's warm beer at midnite and girlie magazines


I stack the empty cans up like a freshman in school


It's the kinda thing you're into when you ain't nobody's fool


Got my socks in the oven somethin's growin' in the sink


I can't begin a peaceful day without a coupla drinks


Ain't had a decent meal since ya made me cry


Well I used to be your lover now I don't even try


[4]Memories take a look at what ya [5]done to me


[5]It's gettin' so all I do is [4]watch T.V.


[4]Can't even prove that I'm a[b7]live[5]


I thought I had your number


There must be some mistake


I dialed 6 3 7 Eleven Eighty-eight


I go some geezer said his girlfriend's on the town


I said I got the wrong number and I slammed the phone down


But I know the number's rite and you're his girl


Tho I wouldn't wanna face it for the whole wide world


If you don't come back baby, I think I'm gonna die


Well I used to be your lover, now I don't even try


Well I used to be your lover, now I don't even try
