Subject: Lyr Add: SHE THINKS I STILL CARE (Lipscomb/Duffy)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 07 Oct 11 - 06:08 PM

My transcription from a recording on Spotify:


SHE THINKS I STILL CARE
Words and music by Dickey Lee Lipscomb & Steve Duffy
As sung by George Jones, 1962

Just because I asked a friend about her,
Just because I spoke her name somewhere,
Just because I rang her number by mistake today,
She thinks I still care.

Just because I haunt the same old places,
Where the mem'ry of her lingers ev'rywhere,
Just because I'm not the happy guy I used to be,
She thinks I still care.

But if she's happy thinking I still need her,
Then let that silly notion bring her cheer.
But how could she ever be so foolish?
Oh, where would she get such an idea?

Just because I asked a friend about her,
Just because I spoke her name somewhere,
Just because I rang her number by mistake today,*
She thinks I still care.
She thinks I still care.

[* In a later recording, he sang "Just because I saw her, then went all to pieces."]

I found this recording at WFMU. (Click for an MP3 file.)

SHE THINKS I DON'T CARE
As sung by Homer & Jethro

She thinks I don't care.

Just because I tried to leave the country,
Just because I knocked her mother down the stairs,
Just because I threw up a bomb on her front porch today,
She thinks I don't care.

Just because I sent her poison ivy,
Just because I poured molasses in her hair,
Just because I pushed her brother down the well today,
She thinks I don't care.

And if my name is mentioned accidentally,
They have to pull her off the chandelier.
She seems to feel that I don't really love her.
Now where would she get such an idear?

Just because I took her car and money,
'Cause I wrote her name and number—guess where?
Just because I married her sister and we leave tonight,
She thinks I don't care.
She thinks I don't care.

SHE THINKS I STEAL CARS

        Pinkard & Bowden
        Addl. lyrics: Kendall Morse
        slight rearrangement by Peter Cady

Just because my attic's full of hub caps,
Just because my basement's full of tires
Just because I ground the numbers off her engine block,
She thinks I steal cars.

Just because I'm always out past mid night
Just because I hang around in bars
Just because I never drive one more than two days,
She thinks I steal cars.

        Well, if she's happy thinking I'm a car thief
        Maybe it's because I gave her such a deal,
        But, those cops keep asking me those nasty questions
        Like, "Where'd you get that freshly painted Oldsmobile?"

Well, just because the cops were here on tuesday
Just because they put me behind bars
Just because they found transmissions in my bath tub,
She thinks I steal cars.
