Mick Pearce (MCP) Lyr Req: You Didn't Have To Tell Me (Hank Snow) (6) Lyr Add: YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO TELL ME (Hank Snow) 28 Mar 20

There are a few errors in the version there. Here's my transcription from a YouTube recording of Hank Snow.


(Hank Snow)

You didn't have to tell me we were parting.
When you looked into my eye, 'twas plain to see;
And though you broke my lonely heart in two, dear,
I wonder: do you sometimes think of me?

[] You didn't have to tell me; I knew it all the while.
I wish you would have told me from the start.
Each lonely night old mem'ries, they come stealin'
Across the meadows of my heart.

Gone is ev'ry joy and inspiration.
My arms reach out to find it's all in vain.
Instead, old pal, I'm all alone and lonesome.
Won't you change your mind and wander back again? []

I'm wond'ring if sometimes do you remember,
When we sat and watched that harvest moon grow old?
Little did I think that you would leave me
Just waiting here so lonesome and alone.
