Okay. I've been a good boy. Even checked the DT. I've done several searches on the 'net. No luck. Lots of references to this 60's song by The Paupers, but no lyrics and stuff. Song's been haunting me lately, which means I gotta do it. I remember most of the words, but not all.

Anybody out there in Mudcat land know all the words? Chords'd be nice too, but I'm sure I could work those out.

Long, long time back. 2 hard drive crashes ago, in fact. If you're still out there, any chance of resending it to ?

You can find this song at YouTube:

IF I CALL YOU BY SOME NAME
Rick Shorter, 1966

1. If I call you by some name
That perhaps is not your name
Will you try to understand
That I never had it planned
But at times my thoughts do slip
And her name comes to my lips
And I'll call you by some name
That perhaps is not your name.

2. If I look into your eyes
Like they're someone else's eyes,
Oh, you need not sympathize,
But I wish you'd realize
That it's not been very long
Since the one I love's been gone,
If I look into your eyes
Like they're someone else's eyes.
Ooh-ooh-ooh, etc.

3. If I give you all my love
Like I once gave all my love,
You can tell yourself at last
He's forgotten all the past
And the thousand yesterday*
He'll no longer cross your way*
If I give you all my love
Like I once gave all my love.
Ooh-ooh-ooh, etc.

REPEAT VERSE 1.

[*These 2 lines don't quite make sense to me, so I suspect there's something wrong.]

Manymuchthankyous Jim.

I think the lines you are wondering about,

"And the thousand yesterday
He'll no longer cross your way"

are, in fact:

"And a thousand yesterdays
Need no longer cross your way"

Make more sense?

Never thought to look on YouTube. That recording is in 'D' so I've got a starting point to figuring out the chords. Again, thanks . . .

It was easy to figure out a basic 3-chord arrangement. The recorded version is somewhat more complex, and beautifully so, but I haven't time at the moment to put into it. This version is definitely "performable":


If I Call You by Some Name
Rick Shorter, 1966

If I (D)call you by some (G)name that (A)perhaps is not your (D)name
Will you (D)try to under-(D7)stand that I (G)never had it planned?
But at (D)times my thoughts do slip and her (A)name comes to my lips
And I'll (D)call you by some (G)name that (A)perhaps is not your (D)name

If I look into your eyes like they're someone else's eyes,
Oh, you need not sympathize, but I wish you'd realize
That it's not been very long since the one I love's been gone,
If I look into your eyes like they're someone else's eyes.

(G)Ooh-ooh-ooh, (D)Ooh-ooh-ooh, (A)Ooh-ooh-ooh, (D)Ooh-ooh-ooh,
(G)Ooh-ooh-ooh, (D)Ooh-ooh-ooh, (A)Ooh-ooh-ooh, (D)Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-(A)ooh

If I give you all my love like I once gave all my love,
You can tell yourself at last he's forgotten all the past
And a thousand yesterdays need no longer cross your way
If I give you all my love like I once gave all my love.

Ooh-ooh-ooh, etc.

repeat verse 1.
