Fair Chance To Know

Lyrics: John Dawson
Music: John Dawson

I woke up this morning with my heart down in my shoes
I guess you'd understate it if you said
That I woke up this morning with a bad case of the blues
And I don't know what I'm a-gonna do today

Chorus
Why, oh why, why did she have to leave?
She left without giving me a chance to say please
Why, oh why, why did she have to go?
She left without giving me a fair chance to know

Now I woke up this morning with my heart down in my shoes
I guess you'd understate it if you said
That I woke up this morning with a bad case of the blues
And I don't know what I'm a-gonna do today

[chorus]

Now I look out my window down onto the street below
And scenes of sunlight fill the air
But it would take more than the sunlight to keep me from feeling low
And I got to go find someone to care

[chorus]
I said she left without giving me a fair chance to know
