Do You Think That I Do Not Know (Live) (Feat. Anne Kirkpatrick) - Slim Dusty

 

They say that I never have written of love

As a writer of songs should do

 

They say that I never could touch the strings

With a touch that is firm and true

 

They say I know nothing of women and men

In the fields where love's roses grow

I must write they say with a haunting pen

Do you think that I do not know

 

My love burst came like an English spring

In the days when our hair was brown

 

And the hem of her shirt was a sacred thing

Her hair was an angel's crown

 

The shock when another man touched her arm

Where the dancer sat in a row

 

The hope and despair and the false alarm

Do you think that I do not know

 

By the amber lights on the western farms

You remember the question you put

 

While you held her warm in your quavering arms

You trembled from head to foot

 

The electric shock from her fingertips

 

The murmuring answer low

 

The soft shy yielding of warm red lips

Do you think that I do not know

 

She was buried at Brighton where Gordon sleeps

When I was a world away

 

And the sad old garden its secret keeps

For nobody knows today

 

She left a message for me to read

Where the wild wide oceans flow

 

Do you know how the heart of a man can bleed

Do you think that I do not know

 

I stood by the grave where the dead girl lies

When the sunlit scene was fair

 

'Neath the white clouds high in the autumn skies

I answered the message there

 

But the haunting words of the dead to me

Shall go wherever I go

 

She lives in the marriage that might have been

Do you think that I do not know

 

She lives in the marriage that might have been

Do you think that I do not know
