Intro:(trumpet over)
     :Bb G7 Cm F7 Bb F7

 Bb                         G7    Cm  F
I don't know why I love you but I do,
                  F7           Bb
I don't know why I cry so but I do
                 G7
I only know I'm lonely
         Eb             C7
and that I want to be lonely
   Bb        G7    Cm       F7   Bb F7
I don't know why  love you but I do

(repeat chords same way)

I can't sleep nights because I feel so restless,
I don't know what you do I feel so helpless,
and since I've been away
I cry all night and day
I don't know why  love you but I do

Refrain:
 Eb
My day time is so lonely
  Bb
My night time is so blue,
    C7
I don't know how I spend it
      F7
But I do

Each night I sing along and tell myself
That I will fall i love with someone else
I guess I'm wasting time,
but I gotta please my mind
I don't know why  love you but I do

It's Clarence 'Frogman' Henry. Not the other way around. KK.

CLARENCE "FROGMAN" HENRY "(I DON'T KNOW WHY ) BUT I DO" 1961

I don't know why I love you but I do
I don't know why I cry so but I do
I only know I'm lonely and that I want you only
I don't know why I love you but I do

I can't sleep nights because I feel so restless
I don't know what to do, I feel so helpless
And since you've been away, I cry both night and day
I don't know why I love you but I do

My days have been so lonely
My nights have been so blue
I don't know how I manage, but I do

Each night I sit alone and tell myself
That I will fall in love with someone else
I guess I'm wastin' time but I've got to clear my mind
I don't know why I love you but I do

listen to him sing word for word... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TlyXArKKNQI
