♫  Ain't Even Trying ♫

I said I got loving on my mind, Loretta
Should I shake it off and try to forget her?
She said maybe, but it's still too soon
You walk the line, you'll see about June

If you see me walking, that's my way of living
The sun's in the water, but there's light in the west
If you hear me crying, that's my way of singing
Ain't even trying to get this love off my chest


If you need a manager, I'll play Doolittle
If you want, you can play me like a fiddle
I was playing in the jailhouse, honey
You looked in, I walked out like Johnny

If you see me walking, that's my way of living
The sun's in the water, but there's light in the west
If you hear me crying, that's my way of singing
Ain't even trying to get this love off my chest


I can't fight like Mooney Lynn
Can I turn out the light and let the moon shine in?
This half moon is in first quarter
You'd make a fine full moon, Miss Carter

If you see me walking your way, I'm living
When you're laughing, I can rest
I'll be singing to you, love, when you're crying
Ain't even trying to get this love off my chest
