The song received renewed popularity in 1974, when country singer Charlie Rich released a cover version he had recorded during the mid-1960s. Rich’s version came about during his stint at RCA’s rhythm and blues subsidiary, Groove Records, and association with producer Chet Atkins, one of the architects of the Nashville Sound. Like many of Atkins-produced songs of the era, “I Don’t See Me …” featured choral backing and strings, a style prominent on other Rich recordings of the time. Allmusic reviewer Stephen Cook said that Rich’s musical style “landed somewhere between the raw sound of his Sun hits … and the pop crossover tone of his Epic smashes.”
Rich’s rendition reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart in June 1974. It was his fifth No. 1 song overall and his third number one in the first six months of 1974 alone. The song also crossed over to the Billboard Hot 100 survey, peaking at No. 47, and to the Easy Listening chart, where it peaked at No. 9.

Charlie Rich – I Don’t See Me in Your Eyes Anymore Lyrics

(Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)
I don’t see me
In your eyes anymore
Oh, why can’t I
Make them shine like before?
I don’t see you
(I don’t see you)
Or your heart in your kiss
(doo-doo-doo-do)
That you should say
(ooooh)
That you’re mine. You resist
(you resist)
There was a time
Life was fine
Love was ecstasy
But now I doubt
What the outcome will be
I pray you’ll say
I’m the one you adore
Then I’ll see me
(I’ll see me)
In your eyes as before
(Aaaaah-aaah)
I pray you’ll say
I’m the one you adore
Then I’ll see me
(I’ll see me)
In your eyes as before
(I’ll see me as before)
