Rich, Charlie - You Don't Know Me Lyrics




You give your hand to me
Then you say "Hello"
And I can hardly speak
My heart is beating so
And anyone can tell
You think you know me well
But you don't know me

You don't know the one
Thinks of you at night
Longs to kiss your lips
And longs to squeeze you tight
To you I'm just a friend
That's all I've ever been
Just don't know me

I never knew the art of making love
Though my heart aches with love for you
Afraid and shy I let my chance go by
The chance that you might love me too

You give your hand to me
And then you say "Goodbye"
I watch you walk away
Beside the lucky guy
You'll never, never know
The one who loves you so
You just don't know me

I never knew the art of making love
Though my heart aches with love for you
Afraid and shy I let my chance go by
The chance that you might love me too

You give your hand to me
Then you say "Goodbye"
I watch you walk away
Beside the lucky guy
You'll never ever know
The one who loves you so
Oh, you don't know me
You'll never ever know
Well, you just don't know me

    But he didn't write this song. Cindy Walker did. Anyway, his performance is superb.

    L.Russell Brown

    Ray Charles version will live forever
    Charlie was a brilliant artist
    His recording of
    The Most Beautiful Girl
    is everlasting!!
    I have always been a great fan of the stablemate of
    Elvis
    Johnny Cash
    Jerry Lee and
    Roy Orbison

  12. Lynn Weiss

    One of Charlie's best. I knew and loved him going Country. Went he crossed over OMG, I knew this sweet shy Artist and he DID IT. My heart aches due to his passing on my Birthday. There will never be another Silver Fox.

    Just listening to to some Charlie... And happened to see your post. Got to say Lady, if I wasn't Happily Married for 35 years to my Wonderful Woman... Well.. I would respectfully ask you to dance to a Charlie song, although I'm certain theres always a line for a Good Looking Woman like you! I know you see; cause I was lucky enough to marry one my damn self😎
    Respectfully,
    G

    This is great- a live recording. I think his version form the album in the picture above is pure perfection- Charlie at his absolute best- an artist of the very highest calibre a complete and unmatched original,

  25. vai baker

    Beautiful version of this song, I love this the most

  26. Barbara Hartnett

    Jerry Vale had a great recording of this song. Big hit for him.

  27. Pam Kelley

    A must for Keith to sing and play. What I wouldn't give to experience that.

  28. S Shipp

    Have always loved it. Way to go Charlie Rich. Are you a Charlie Rich Fan, Keith?

  29. CrazyForMarty

    I have always liked Charlie Rich, but i don't care at all for his version of this song.
    i think the best version of this song is by Tex Ritter, Jerry Vale, Eddy Arnold, in this
    order. I think you can't beat TEX for this particular song. Thanks for posting this,
    as i do love to hear the same song done by different artists !!!
