# I Dont Even Try

## John Hiatt

 1 There must be some mistake
 1 4 1 I dialed 6 3 7 E leven Eighty- eight
 1 1 I 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
 Well I used to be your lover now I don't even try
 4 5 Memories take a look at what ya done to me
 5 4 It's gettin' so all I do is watch T.V.
 4 b7 5 Can't even prove that I'm a live
 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
