I Dont Even Try

John Hiatt



 1
thought I had your number
 1
There must be some mistake
 141
I dialed 6 3 7 Eleven Eighty-eight
 11
got some geezer said his 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
 45
 Memories take a look at what ya done to me
 54
 It's gettin' so all I do is watch T.V.
 4b75
 Can't even prove that I'm alive 
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
