i’d rather not know lyrics – jim reeves

our once precious love was marred by seperation
and the days set apart have bothered me so
you are my only love in all god’s creation
and if you’d been untrue then i’d rather not know.

i’d rather not know if you’ve been unfaithful
and tarnished the love that i treasured so
any rival of mine is faceless and traceless
let’s keep it that way, ’cause i’d rather not know.

i’ve heard people say when a consciance is gulty
’cause sometimes through h*ll brings peace to your soul
but don’t ever tell me what i don’t know can’t hurt me
just confess in your prayers, for i’d rather not know.

i’d rather not know if you’ve been unfaithful
and tarnished the love that i treasured so
any rival of mine is faceless and traceless
let’s keep it that way, for i’d rather not know…
