I know the song sure enough. I guess I can work with you on it. And you bet, I am a JT fan. There's been plenty of JT bashing in this group. For the record, I relied on his music very much during my early years with the guitar. Heck, he had a strong influence on my music in general that has carried on to now. If that lowers my appeal to some here, ah well. Come on, it couldn't have been that high anyhow!

I doubt that Lonesome EJ still wants the chords, which I couldn't provide anyway, but I can provide lyrics.


(I'VE GOT TO) STOP THINKIN' 'BOUT THAT
Written by Danny Kortchmar & James Taylor
As sung by James Taylor on "New Moon Shine" (1991)

I like to think about the time I met you,
Living with your people in New Orleans,
Mad at your mama 'cause she'd never let you
Ride in no nasty limousines.
Later on the levee with the moon up above,
I lost my heart and confessed my love.
Oh, Lucy said, God have mercy!
I've got to stop thinkin' 'bout that,
Somehow.
It does me no damn good.

One summer night in a field of wheat,,
God's sweet lanterns hanging in the sky
Moving light on your tiny feet,
I knew I had to love you 'till the day I die.
They talk about Amazing Grace.
It meant something when I saw your face.
Oh, now, Lucy said, God have mercy!
I've got to stop thinkin' 'bout that.
Oh, Lucy said
Can't stop thinkin' 'bout you.

I think of all the little things that I never told you.
I think I may get to hold you someday.
It's in my brain just like a man possessed.
I can't do me no work; I can't get me no rest.
I can't understand it, baby.

Don't like to think about the way it ended.
I hate remembering the things that I said.
I dream a dream of a love so splendid.
I wake up hot in an empty bed.
I wonder who'll be loving you next.
Some fool who will be writing bad checks.
Oh, now, Lucy, God have mercy!
I've got to stop thinkin' 'bout you.
Somehow, baby, Lord have mercy!
I've got to stop thinkin' 'bout that.
Oh, whoa, oh, whoa...
