You Don’t Know Me Lyrics

Song by Ray Charles

You give your hand to me and then you say “hello”
And I can hardly speak my heart is beating so
And anyone can tell
You think you know me well but you don’t know me, no

No, you don’t know the one who dreams of you each night
And longs to kiss your lips
And longs to hold you tight
To you, I’m just a friend, that’s all I’ve ever been
No, you don’t know me

I never knew the art of making love
Though my heart aches with love for you, yeah
Afraid and shy, I let my chance go by
A chance that you might love me too

You give your hand to me and then you say, “goodbye”
And I watched you walk away beside the lucky guy
I know you’ll never know
The one who loved you so
No, you don’t know me

But I never knew the art of making love
Though my heart aches with love for you
I’m afraid and shy, I let my chance go by
A chance that you might love me too

You give your hand to me and then you say “goodbye”
And I watched you walk away beside the lucky guy
Oh, you’ll never ever know
The one who loved you so
No, you don’t know me

I say you’ll never ever know
The one who loved you so
No, you don’t know me
No, you don’t know me

Where Her Heart Has Always Been

Song by Alan Jackson

“And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them
And the glory of the Lord shone round about them”

The morning light was soft and low
The clouds had left an early snow
A peaceful sound was calling low
“It’s time to go”
Then God reached out His tender hand
And gently pulled her home with Him
And brushed away the sorrow from her soul within

And I could hear the roses sing
A bluebird softly claps its wings
The sun seemed brighter than it’s ever been
And now she’s dancing in the wind
With her true love again
Where her heart has always been
Where her heart has always been

And I could hear the roses sing
A bluebird softly claps its wings
The sun seemed brighter than it’s ever been
And now she’s dancing in the wind
With her true love again
Where her heart has always been
Where her heart has always been
Where her heart has always been

The morning light was soft and low
The clouds had left an early snow

Nobody Knows but Me Lyrics

Song by Merle Haggard

Nobody knows about the jailhouse blues till you get within four walls
The jailerman turns that big black key that’s when your spirit falls
You drag yourself up to the bars and while you gaze out at the stars
This is what you’ll say.

Hey why did I stray from the righteous path, nobody knows but me
There on the outside you all can laugh but I don’t need your sympathy
For after I’ve paid for the liquor I’ve stole
I’ll leave this place worth my weight in gold
So why did I stray from the righteous path nobody knows but me.

When you realize that you’re all alone seated in a two-by-four
That little cell is just a taste of hell if you ain’t been there before
Well you’re locked up tight but they treat you fair
You get everything that you need in there
That’s just why you’ll say.

Well, why did I stray from the righteous path, nobody knows but me
There on the outside you all can laugh but I don’t need your sympathy
For after I’ve paid for the liquor I’ve stole
I’ll leave this place worth my weight in gold
So why did I stray from the righteous path nobody knows but me.

Nobody knows but me…
