      You Don't Know Me (Original Film Version) - Elvis Presley
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Elvis Presley
You Don't Know Me (Original Film Version, 1967)
(Cindy Walker/Eddy Arnold)

This song had already been a #2 hit for Ray Charles in 1962. Elvis 
recorded it twice in 1967. The first version (2:14) was made in 
February as part of the soundtrack recordings for the movie "Clambake". 
This recording is featured in the film, but for the release on the 
albums mentioned below a different mix was used: In the movie the 
instruments (piano, drums, bass, guitar) are very low and the orchestra 
is put into the foreground. As far as I know, the movie version with 
orchestra has not been released outside the movie. The album version, 
on the other hand, does not have any orchestra at all, which, to me, 
makes this mix less sentimental and much more intimate and touching. 
Definitely recommended!

Another, slightly longer recording (2:29) of this song was made in 
September 1967 and then used as the B-side of the single "Big Boss Man".
It is in a different key, too (in B as compared to Bb for the movie version)
and features some slightly different chords (mostly transitional chords) 
To me, the shorter version from the film is superior, though. 

February 1967 version (without orchestra) now available on: 
  "Command Performances - The Essential 60's Masters II [Disc 2]"
  and "Elvis Double Features: Kissin' Cousins / Clambake / Stay Away, Joe"

              G          Gmaj7        G6         G7
You give your hand to me and then you say hello
          C            Cmaj7        C6          C#dim
And I can hardly speak, my heart is beating so
       G/D            E7             Am
And anyone could tell, you think you know me well
D7             B7-9 B7   E  Am7  D7
 But you don't know me

             G           Gmaj7          G6            G7
No you don't know the one who dreams of you at night
             C             Cmaj7         C6            C#dim
And longs to kiss your lips and longs to hold you tight
           G/D           E7                   Am
To you I'm just a friend, and that's all I've ever been

 But you don't know me

    C                Bm            E
For I never knew the art of making love
          Am               D7       G
Though my heart aches with love for you
 Em              Bm               E7
Afraid and shy I let my chance go by
    A                             D7
The chance that you might love me too

              G         Gmaj7         G6            G
You give your hand to me and then you say good-bye
            C        Cmaj7       C6          C#dim
I watch you walk away beside the lucky guy
          G/D       E7           Am
To never, never know the one who loves you so
D7             G
 No, you don't know me
