I Was a Fool to Care - 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 space 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, babe, 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.
You weren't nothing but a fool to care, just a country fool to care.
