She Even Woke Me Up To Say Goodbye
Written by Mickey Newbury
Recorded by Mickey and also by Jerry Lee Lewis
[A]Morning's come and [D]Lord my mind is [A]achin'
Sunshine's standing [D]quietly at my [E7]door.
[A]Just like the dawn, my [D]heart is silently [A]breakin'
And with my tears it goes [D]tumbling to the [E7]floor
[A]Once again, the [D]whole town will be [A]talkin
Lord I see the [D]pity in their [E7]eyes
But they could [A]never understand it's her [D]sorrow it's not a man
And no [E]matter what they say, we know she [A]tried
[D]Baby's packed her soft things and [A]left me
But I know she didn't [D]mean to make me [E7]cry
It's her [A]heart Lord, it's not her mind, she didn't [D]mean to be unkind
Why she [E7]even woke me up to say [A]goodbye
