Eddy Arnold – You Don’t Know Me, is a song written by Cindy Walker based on a title and storyline given to her by Eddy Arnold in 1955. “You Don’t Know Me” was first recorded by Arnold that year and released as a single on April 21, 1956 on RCA Victor. The best-selling version of the song is by Ray Charles, who took it to number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1962, after releasing the song on his number 1 album Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music. The first version of the song to make the Billboard charts was by Jerry Vale in 1956, peaking at number 14 on the pop chart. Arnold’s version charted two months later, released as an RCA Victor single, 47-6502, backed with “The Rockin’ Mockin’ Bird”, which reached number 10 on the Billboard country chart. Cash Box magazine, which combined all best-selling versions at one position, included a version by Carmen McRae that never appeared in the Billboard Top 100 Sides listing.

Eddy Arnold – You Don’t Know Me lyrics

You give your hand to me and then you say hello
And I can hardly speak my heart is beating so
And anyone could tell you think you know me well
But you don’t know me

No you don’t know the one who dreams of you at night
And longs to kiss your lips and longs to hold you tight
To you I’m just a friend that’s all I’ve ever been
But you don’t know me

For I never knew the art of making love
Though my heart aches with the love for you
Afraid and shy I let my chance go by
The chance you might have loved me too

You gave your hand to me and then you say goodbye
I watch you walk away beside a lucky guy
You’ll never never know the one who loves you so
No you don’t know me
