Patsy Cline’s First Hit Single

That would be She’s Got You, 1962.

The year previously she had had hits with I Fall to Pieces and Crazy, but She’s Got You went almost immediately to the No. 1 Hit spot as soon as it was released. Due to this success Patsy was offered an appearance on American Bandstand with Dick Clark, which then lead to her own show in Las Vegas. The song was included on her third album, Sentimentally Yours.

This song has been covered by numerous artists: Dean Martin, Leanne Rimes, Roseanne Cash, Jimmy Buffett, Lee Anne Womack and Elvis Costello, to name a few. In 1977 Lorretta Lynn recorded this song which also became a No. 1 hit when it was released on her tribute album, I Remember Patsy, and it was one of the songs on the soundtrack to the 2010 movie Country Strong.

SHE’S GOT YOU – by Hank Cochran.   Patsy Cline’s first hit single, 1962.

NOTE: Tempo on original sheet music is 6/8 Timing.

INTRO:  [F]  [Dm]  [F]  [C7-1 – STOP]

I’ve got your [F] picture, [C7] that you gave to [F] me [F7]

And they still [Bb] sound the same, as when you were here [Bb7]

The only thing [F] diff’rent, [Dm] the only thing [F] new [Dm]

I’ve got your [F] records, [C7] she’s got [F] you [F7]

Bridge:

I’ve got your [Bb] memory, or has it got me?

I really don’t [G7] know, but I know, it won’t let me [C7] be! [dramatic pause]

I’ve got your [F] class ring, [C7] that proved you [F] care [F7]

And it still [Bb] looks the same, as when you gave it, dear. [Bb7]

The only thing [F] diff’rent, [Dm] the only thing [F] new [Dm]

I’ve got these [F] little things, [C7] she’s got [F] you [F7]

Bridge:

I’ve got your [Bb] memory, or has it got me?

I’ve got your [F] class ring, [C7] that proved you [F] care [F7]

And it still [Bb] looks the same, as when you gave it, dear [Bb7]

The only thing [F] diff’rent, [Dm] the only thing [F] new [Dm]

I’ve got these [F] little things [C7]
