It Doesn't Matter Anymore

It Doesn't Matter Anymore

Escrita por Paul Anka

Interpretada por Buddy Holly (Coral, 9-62074, 1959)

Registrado el 21 de octubre de 1958 en la que sería la última sesión de grabación de Buddy e incluido en un sencillo publicado apenas dos semanas antes de su muerte, "It Doesn't Matter Anymore" se convirtió en un éxito gracias, precisamente, al accidente que segó la vida de Holly, llegando al nº 1 de las listas en Australia y el Reino Unido y al nº 13 en Estados Unidos. Es conocido que Dick Jacobs tuvo que encargarse de hacer a toda prisa los arreglos para la sección de cuerda que adornó esta historia de desamor salida de la mente del joven Paul Anka.

There you go and baby here am I

Well you left me here so I could sit and cry

Golly gee what have you done to me

Well I guess it doesn't matter anymore

 

Do you remember baby last September

How you held me tight each and every night

Oh baby how you drove me crazy

But I guess it doesn't matter any more

 

There's no use in me a-cryin'

I've done everything and now I'm sick of trying

I've thrown away my nights, wasted all my days over you

 

Now you go your way baby and I'll go mine

Now and forever 'till the end of time

And I'll find somebody new and baby

We'll say we're through and you won't matter any more

 

There's no use in me a-cryin'

I've done everything and now I'm sick of trying

I've thrown away my nights, wasted all my days over you

 

Now you go your way baby and I'll go mine

Now and forever 'till the end of time

And I'll find somebody new and baby

We'll say we're through and you won't matter any more
