What Mattered Most
Performed by Gary Burr
Written by Gary Burr and Vince Melamed
From the Gary Burr CD "Stop Me If You've Heard This One"

(I saw Gary Burr do this at the Bluebird, in Nashville. He 
 sings it much slower and with more of a "bluesy" feel than 
 the hit version. After the performance, there wasn't a dry
 eye in the house.)

 D   D/F#  G   A,  D  D/F#  G   A
	         D                    D/F#	
I thought I knew, the girl so well
G		               D
If she was sad, I couldn't tell
I missed the point, I missed the signs
G	    		              D 	 
So if she's gone, the fault is mine
   Em				               D
I know, I know, a whole lot of little things
     Em 			                  D	
And even though, I could list them one by one
		        A7sus         A7
She would still be gone

		   D                 D/F#
Her eyes are blue   her hair is long
     G              D/A
In '64        she was born
      A      D
in Baton Rouge
              D/F#             G
Her favorite song    is "In My Life"

              D/A       Bm
I memorized her every move
	       A		        G
I knew her books, her car, her clothes
       D      D/F#     G               A          D   
But I paid,    no  attention   to what mattered most

Verse 2
I never asked, she never said
And when she cried I turned my head
She dreamed her dreams, behind closed doors
That made them easy to ignore
I know, I know, I missed the forest for the trees
Now all I have to show
When she walked out the door
Are cold facts and nothin' more


Last Chorus:
Her eyes are blue, her hair is long, In '64
She was born, in Baton Rouge, 
Her father's tall, her mother's gone,
She moved out West when she was two,
The way she laughed, the way she loved,
Oh my God what did I do?
