WHAT'S YOUR NAME?

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


              Am          G
              what's your name?
              C                              Am
              I'd like to write a song about you.
                           G
              but just the same,
                 C                           Am
              no label can fit the memory of you.
              Dadd9(no 3rd)               Am
              I don't know your husband's face.
                                      G
              but if you left him for me,
              C                        Am
              perhaps it wouldn't last too long.
                                     G
              but then, if you went away,
              C          Am
              I'll still have this song.

              Am                G
              I don't know your name,
                           Dadd9(no 3rd)  C   Am
              but here's a song I wrote about you.
                               G
              it helps ease my pain
                     Dadd9(no 3rd)            C   Am
              in the times when I must do without you.

              Am      G            Am
              Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo.
              Am      G            Am
              Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo.

              Dadd9(no 3rd)
              I was just thinking
                                     Am
              about the way that you smile at me.
              G                    C  Am
              is it because you're happy?
              Dadd9(no 3rd)                   Am
              or is it that all your world is darkness
              G                 Am
              and I'm your only light?

              Am                    G
              no, I don't know your name,
                           Dadd9(no 3rd)  C   Am
              but here's a song I wrote about you.
                               G
              it helps ease my pain
                     Dadd9(no 3rd)            C   Am
              in the times when I must do without you.

              Am             G    Dadd9(no 3rd)     Am
              yes, this is a song that I wrote back then.
                            G
              it's not very long,
                  Dadd9(no 3rd)
              but that's just so
                            Am
              I can sing it again and again and again and again.

              Am               G
              I never knew her name,
                           Dadd9(no 3rd)  C   Am
              but here's a song I wrote about her.
                               G
              it helps ease my pain
              Dadd9(no 3rd)            C   Am
              now that I must live without her.

              Am      G            Am
              Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo.
              Am      G            Am
              Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo.
