You Don't Even Know Me

  • All right you saw me in the "International Times"
    You've got my picture in your book
    You tell your friends not to call at weekend,
    And now you wear that far-off look

    All right you stole your mother's best sheets
    And put them on my bed
    And you remember all the words that I say
    And now you keep them in your head

    But you don't even know me
    You don't even know me
    You don't even know me at all

    All right I told you that I'm leaving London
    The Summer seems so long
    I've got no money to pay the rent
    I've got no place to take my songs

    And then you tell me I should keep on trying
    You hand me an envelope
    With all the money that you'd saved up
    You couldn't stand to see me go

    But you don't even know me
    You don't even know me
    You don't even know me at all

    All right I took you to the Hendrix concert
    On the seventh day of May
    And through the Summer of 1967
    We were part of the seeds of change

    And now you say that we can really make it
    We've got nowhere to fall
    And though the signs are hung in the rainy distance
    You don't see them at all

    But you don't even know me
    You don't even know me
    You don't even know me at all

    But you don't even know me
    You don't even know me
    You don't even knew me at all

    You don't know me at all
    You don't know me at all

    All right I think that we should stay together
