Lyrics

Why Did You Say You Loved Me?
by James H. Turner

Verse:
There’s been a time or two
When I’ve had the blues
But never like this before
I’m gazing on down
As I sit on the ground
Drinking a bottle of brew

We hitched up as two
About a year ago
My pictures show our smiles
But last night
When the moon was bright
I saw him kissing you

Chorus:
So, why, I, I, did you say you loved me?
Oh, why, I, I, did you say you cared
Why, I, I, did you say you loved me
When, clearly, your hearts not there
When, clearly, you just don’t care

Verse:
After a beer or two
I’m feeling so blue
As my heart sinks slowly down
Then the train rolls by
And I start to cry
As it sings its mournful sound

I try to think
Of happier times
But it only brings me down
The thought of you
With someone new
Is the saddest song around

Chorus:
So, why, I, I, did you say you loved me?
Oh, why, I, I, did you say you cared
Why, I, I did you say you loved me
When, clearly, your hearts not there
When, clearly, you just don’t care

Oh, why, I, I, did you say you loved me?
I’ve always been there for you
Why, I, I, did you say you loved me?
When, clearly, your loves not true
And now you’ve gone
And given me the blues
And now you’ve gone
And given me the blues
And now you’ve gone
And given me the blues…
