He Thinks I Still Care
Anne Murray
Written by D. L. Lipscomb

Peaked at # 1 on the Country chart while the flip, "You Won't See Me" was hitting
# 8 on the Pop chart.
Re-make of George Jones' "She Thinks I Still Care" which hit # 1 on the Country
Chart in 1962

Just because I ask a friend about him
Just because I spoke his name somewhere
Just because I rang his number by mistake today
He thinks I still care

Just because I haunt the same old places
Where the mem'ry of him lingers everywhere
Just because I'm not the happy girl I used to be
He thinks I still care

And if he's happy thinking I still need him
Then let that silly notion bring him cheer
But how could he ever be so foolish?
Or where would he get such an idea?

Just because I ask a friend about him
Just because I spoke his name somewhere
Just because I saw him, then went all to pieces
He thinks I still care

Yes, he thinks I still care
