About the song:

The song is a ballad that describes the end of a marriage where both spouses realize that they have become strangers over time.
According to Loveless, “The one that got a lot of reaction was” You Don’t Even Know Who I Am. “It starts out and you think,” Okay, here’s another woman crying about something, “and then it swings around and it says he finds her ring on the pillow, and he starts to think, “Hey, you didn’t know who I was either.” They got to the point in their marriage that they didn’t know each other anymore. There’s been a lot of men that this song just tears up. I’ve often said that country is the cheapest therapy you can get. Music can be good for your soul. People can be moved to tears. “
“You Don’t Even Know Who I Am” was nominated for 1996 Academy of Country Music Song of the Year award and the 1996 Grammy Awards Country Song of the Year.





Patty Loveless – You Don’t Even Know Who I Am Lyrics

She left the car in the driveway
She left the key in the door
She left the kids at her mama’s
And the laundry piled up on the floor
She left her ring on the pillow
Right where it wouldn’t be missed
She left a note in the kitchen
Next to the grocery list

It said, you don’t even know who I am
You left me a long time ago
You don’t even know who I am
So what do you care if I go

He left the ring on the pillow
He left the clothes on the floor
And he called her to say he was sorry
But he couldn’t remember what for
So he said I’ve been doing some thinking
I’ve been thinking that maybe you’re right
I go to work every morning
And I come home to you every night

And you don’t even know who I am
You left me a long time ago
You don’t even know who I am
So what do I care if you go
You don’t even know who I am
So what do I care if you go
