Alan Jackson performs "I Don't Even Know Your Name"

"I Don't Even Know Your Name" is a song co-written and recorded by American country music artist Alan Jackson. It was released in May 1995 as the fifth and final single from his album Who I Am. It reached number-one on the U.S. Billboard country charts and on the Canadian RPM Country Tracks chart. It was written by Jackson with Ron Jackson and Andy Lofton.

 

The song begins with a man who is "sitting at a roadhouse." As his waitress, who noticeably has a missing left front tooth, takes his order, another waitress at the roadhouse catches his eye. Over the course of the song, the singer falls in love with the other waitress, winds up intoxicated, blacks out, and comes to his senses in the middle of his own wedding; as it turns out, he has now been unwittingly married to the waitress with the missing tooth. All the while, none of the three characters know each other's names.

Alan Jackson - I Don't Even Know Your Name Lyrics

 

Well I was sitting at a roadhouse down on Highway 41

You were wiping off some ketchup on a table that was done

I knew you didn't see me I was in a corner booth

Of course you weren't my waitress mine was missing her front tooth

So I flagged you down for coffee but I couldn't say a thing

But I'm in love with you baby and I don't even know your name.

I'm in love with you baby

I don't even know your name

I've never been too good at all those sexual games

So maybe it's just better if we leave it this way

I'm in love with you baby and I don't even know your name

So I ordered straight tequila a little courage in a shot

And I asked you for a date and then I asked to tie the knot

I got a little wasted

Yeah I went a little far

But I finally got to hug you when you helped me to my car

The last thing I remember I heard myself say

I'm in love with you baby and I don't even know your name

I'm in love with you baby

I don't even know your name

I've never been too good at all those sexual games

So maybe it's just better if we leave it this way

I'm in love with you baby and I don't even know your name

The next thing I remember I was hearing wedding bells

Standing by a women in a long white lacy veil

I raised the veil she smiled at me without her left front tooth

And I said where the Hell am I and just who the Hell are you?

She said I was your waitress

And our last name's now the same

'Cause I'm married to you baby and I don't even know your name

Yeah I'm married to a waitress

I don't even know her name

I've never been too good at all those sexual games

I never thought my love life would quite turn out this way

Hey I'm married to a waitress and I don't even know her name

Get me out of here!
