For Lovin' Me - Did She Mention My Name Lyrics

by Gordon Lightfoot

That's what you get for lovin' me
That's what you get for lovin' me
Every thing you had is gone as you can see
That's what you get for lovin' me

I ain't the kind to hang around
With any new love that I found
Since movin' is my stock in trade, I'm movin' on
I won't think of you when I'm gone

So don't you shed a tear for me
Because I ain't the love you thought I'd be
I got a hundred more like you, so don't be blue
I'll have a thousand 'fore I'm through

That's what you get for lovin' me
That's what you get for lovin' me
Every thing you had is gone as you can see
That's what you get for lovin' me

It's so nice to meet an old friend and pass the time of day
And talk about the home town a million miles away
Is the ice still on the river, are the old folks still the same
And by the way, did she mention my name?

Did she mention my name just in passing
And when the morning came
Do you remember if she dropped a name or two?
Is the home team still on fire, do they still win all the games
And by the way, did she mention my name?

Did she mention my name just in passing
And when the talk ran high
Did the look in her eye seem far away?
Won't you say hello from someone, they'll be no need to explain
And by the way, did she mention my name?
