About I Forgot More Than You'll Ever Know

"I Forgot More Than You'll Ever Know" (sometimes "I've Forgotten More Than You'll Ever Know About Him") is a number one country music single for The Davis Sisters in 1953. The song, written by Cecil Null, was the first hit for the duo of Skeeter Davis and Betty Jack Davis and their only one as Betty Jack was killed in an automobile accident the week the record was released. The song was one of five tracks recorded (including two versions of the "B" side, "Rockabye Boogie") on May 23, 1953. The musicians for the sessions were Chet Atkins, lead guitar; Velma E. Williams Smith, guitar; Jerry Byrd, steel guitar; Ernie Newton, bass; and Hal Smith, fiddle. The session, The Davis Sisters' first in Nashville, Tennessee was recorded at Thomas Productions. The song tells the story of the ex-girlfriend of a young man warning his smug, ruthless current flame who stole him away that she'll lose him too one day "when his love goes cold." The song is sung completely in duet harmony by Skeeter and Betty Jack with the exception of the lines "You stole his love from me one day, you didn't care how you hurt me, but you can never steal away memories of what used to be" which is sung by Betty Jack.

You think you know the smile on his lips
The thrill at the touch of his fingertips
Oh but I forgot more than you'll ever know about him
You think you'll find a heaven of bliss
In each caress and each tender kiss

But I forgot more than you'll ever know about him
You stole his love from me one day and you didn't care how you hurt me
But you can never steal away mem'ries of what used to be
Yes you think he's yours to have and to hold
But someday you'll learn when his love grows cold
That I forgot more than you'll ever know about him
