I Don^Òt Even Try
John Hiatt / Riding with the King 1983

  1
I thought I had your number
      1
There must be some mistake
         1      4            1
I dialed 6 3 7 Eleven 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
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       /                       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 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
