I Don't Know Why

Red was a very elderly man--in his 90's I'm sure--who always came into the Sugar House Sizzler when I was a waitress there during college. He had a wonderful voice but a terrible memory. When Red would come and sit in my section, without doubt another server would come over and say to him, "Red, I don't think Michelle has heard your song." Red would then begin signing this song by Hank Locklin. He wouldn't just sing, he would get up and dance, too. After, he would tell you about his sweet wife (who was deceased) and show you her picture. I just had this song on my mind today and thought of Red. :) I can't even find the song on Youtube, or I would share it.

I don't know why I love you like I do;
I don't know why I just do.
I don't know why you thrill me like you do;
I don't know why you just do.
You never seem to want my romancing;
the only time you hold me is when we're dancing.
I don't know why I love you like I do;
I don't know why, I just do.
