# I Dont Even Try   John Hiatt

``` I Dont Even Try  John Hiatt

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

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]

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
