Why Don
Joni James Lyrics

Why don't you believe me?
It's you I adore
Forever and ever, can I promise more?
I've told you so often the way that I care
Why don't you believe me?
It just isn't fair

Here is a heart that is lonely
Here is a heart you can take
Here is a heart for you only
That you can keep or break

How else can I tell you, what more can I do?
Why don't you believe me?, I love only you

Joni came to my hometown when I was 13 and sang with the Alvino Rey orchestra at a dance in our recently built Veterans Memorial Building. A banner across Monterey Street (was Hwy 101 that year) Read: “Little Miss Cheatin’ Heart” Joni James and the Alvino Rey Orchestra. I was too young to attend. The Chicago native will turn 88 on Sept. 22, 2018. I love whoever picked her arrangements. I recommend putting a Joni James channel on Pandora.

There will never be another JONI JAMES. She was the sweetheart of all us KOREAN WAR VETERANS in our time! I can still recall her rendition of this song when it first came out in 1952. It ranked #1 on the charts.She went on to have many, many, more great hits. Hard to believe she just turned 86 on September 22, 2016.
