She's Got You Lyrics

A Patsy Cline Country Classic from 1962.

She's Got You Lyrics - Patsy Cline Country Classics

Patsy Cline loved the She's Got You Lyrics.

When song writer Hank Cochran told her he had written her next #1 hit she told him to bring a bottle of liquor to her house, play it for her, and the rest is history.

Hank came to her house and played it for Patsy and her friend Dottie West who was visiting that afternoon.

After hearing the song Patsy was so moved by the Lyrics she not only learned the song that night, she called Owen Bradley, her producer and sang it to him over the phone.

Patsy recorded the song at her next session and the song was released on January 10th, 1962.

This was actually pretty unusual as she and Bradley often disagreed with each others choice of material. Even before the song was released they both agreed they had a hit.

Patsy's great back-up for a great song.

A Patsy Cline #1 hit from 1962.

When the song was released it immediately went to #1 on the country charts. It also marked her first hit single in the United Kingdom.

As you listen to the song and enjoy the She's Got You lyrics play close attention to those great  background sounds featuring vocals by The Jordainaires and Floyd Cramer's piano.  Both played on many Patsy Cline songs during her short career.

Patsy's close friend puts her song back on top.

She's Got You has been covered by numerous artists, but none did her more proud than her close friend Loretta Lynn.

In 1977, the song also became a No. 1 country hit for Lynn, when her tribute album to Cline called I Remember Patsy was released.

There's a reason that over 50 years after her death and the end of her short career she is still regarded as one of the most important singers of the 20th century.  You may just think of her as only a country singer, but her music goes so far beyond that. 

Her vocal phrasing was almost perfect and the gut-wrenching emotion that she sang further enhanced her performances.

Enjoy this Country classic that Patsy Cline loved so much.


I've got your picture that you gave to me
And it's signed "with love," just like it used to be
The only thing different, the only thing new
I've got your picture, she's got you

I've got the records that we used to share
And they still sound the same as when you were here
The only thing different, the only thing new
I've got the records, she's got you

I've got your memory, or has it got me?
I really don't know, but I know it won't let me be

I've got your class ring; that proved you cared
And it still looks the same as when you gave it dear
The only thing different, the only thing new
I've got these little things, she's got you

I've got your memory, or has it got me?
I really don't know, but I know it won't let me be

I've got your class ring; that proved you cared
And it still looks the same as when you gave it dear
The only thing different, the only thing new
I've got these little things, she's got you
