Would appreciate if anyone has the lyrics for above song by the Louvain Brothers that they might share. Thanks.

Subject: Lyr Add: SHE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW I WAS GONE (Louvin)

Here's my transcription from a recording I heard on Spotify:


SHE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW I WAS GONE
As sung by the Louvin Brothers on "My Baby's Gone" (2007)

1. O mister, let me stay a while and talk with you.
I know it's time to lock the door; the dance is through,
But maybe you can tell me how to take this pain,
Or maybe this has happened once to you.

2. Yesterday I owned the world, the ocean, and the shore.
My baby said she'd never make me hurt anymore.
Tonight we planned to mention our engagement at the dance.
I wish we'd never come through that door.

3. The music started playing and she walked away.
My heart was crying loud but not a word could I say.
She danced with him all night and they helped sing ev'ry song.
She didn't even know I was gone.

4. I waited at the door until the dance was through.
I had to know for sure that what I'd seen was true.
She cuddled in his arms and then they walked out of sight.
She didn't even tell me goodnight.

REPEAT 2 AND 3.

Thanks Jim. Big fan of the Louvain's since way back in the 50's. Charlie's biography Satan is Real was a bit of an eye opener even though I knew years ago that Ira was a bit of a loose canon. However he was a brillkiant songwriter.

"She danced with him all night and they helped sing ev'ry song."

Let this be a lesson to all of us. Learn to sing and when somebody asks you to, sing along. Then you'll be lucky in love.
