George Jones – She Thinks I Still Care Lyrics

 

[Verse 1]

Just because I ask a friend about her

Just because I spoke her name somewhere

Just because I rang her number by mistake today

She thinks I still care

 

[Verse 2]

Just because I haunt the same old places

Where the memory of her lingers everywhere

Just because I’m not the happy guy I used to be

She thinks I still care

 

[Bridge]

But if she’s happy thinking I still need her

Then let that silly notion bring her cheer

But how could she ever be so foolish

Oh where would she get such an idea

 

[Verse 3]

Just because I ask a friend about her

And just because I spoke her name somewhere

Just because I saw her then went all to pieces

She thinks I still care, she thinks I still care
