i was a fool to care lyrics – james taylor

i was a fool to care
i was a fool to care
i was a fool to care
but i don’t care even if i was a fool
i’m still in love with you

had i listened to the grapevine
i might have had my doubts
but i did my level best just to block them out
’cause love is so unwise and love has no eyes
and it took a while for a fool to see
what his friends were on about

i was a fool to care
i was a fool to care
i was a fool to care
but i don’t care even if i was a fool
i’m still in love with you

imagining your face
it almost fills the empty sp*ce before me
i can see you eyes and almost hear your lovely lies

i wish i was an old man
and love was through with me
i wish i was a baby on my mama’s knee
i wish i was a freight train moving down the line
just keeping track of time
without all these memories

i was a fool to care
i was a fool to care
i was a fool to care
but i don’t care even if i was a fool
i’m still in love with you
baby, yes, i am
i could have opened my eyes
i could have seen through your lies
i could have stood for no more
i could have walked out the door

but i was a fool to care, i was a fool to care
but i was a fool to care, i was a fool to care
you weren’t nothing but a fool to care; just a country fool to care.
