Default Dead Ringer For Me

Here’s another in the series I call country songs they forgot to write 50 years ago. I bring a couple of these originals a month to my weekly jam for several folks in their 80’s who love ancient country. This has a slow ballad vibe.

V1
I met her for coffee at her favorite cafe
I'd wanted to see her most all of the day
Since we've been together I've taken it slow
I knew all along where I wanted it to go
She said she was happy I was her friend
& went on about a new love almost without end

V2
She said any time that he comes around
He can cheer her up whenever she's down
And every time he's over to her place
He can always put a smile on her face
He has a very special place in her heart
She counts the minutes whenever they're apart

1st Chorus
I NEED TO FIND A WAY
I'VE GOT TO MAKE HER SEE
WHOEVER HE IS, HE'S A
DEAD RINGER FOR ME
I NEED TO TURN THIS AROUND
I CAN'T LET IT BE
SHE HAS TO KNOW HE'S A
DEAD RINGER FOR ME

v3
She said he's the only one she can think of
She's happy being a woman in love
I sat in silence nothing came to my mind
There was an answer I needed to find
As I was wondering what I should do
She said baby I'm talking about you

2nd Chorus
i THOUGHT I'D LOST MY WAY
THEN SHE MADE ME SEE
THIS MAN ALL ALONG WAS A
DEAD RINGER FOR ME
SHE TURNED IT AROUND
TO HOW IT SHOULD BE
SHE KNEW ALL ALONG HE WAS A
DEAD RINGER FOR ME

As usually happens , after performing a new song a few times I subconsciously change some of the wording. By changing the next to the last line of the 2nd chorus it now matches corresponding wording in 1st chorus. I’m always amazed at how these little changes only occur to me when performing a new song in public.
