Woman in Love (It's Not Me)

from 10 Covers by Richard Turgeon



I’ve always been a big Tom Petty fan. He was cool, he was consistent, he was a king of rock for decades. Most importantly, he was a master of his craft as a songwriter. I hope you enjoy my new cover of “Woman in Love,” a lesser-known but powerful Petty classic, co-written by his longtime collaborator and guitarist, Mike Campbell.

Thanks to my friend Eric from the Union Trade for turning me on to this gem.


She laughed in my face, told me good-bye
Said "Don't think about it, you can go crazy
Anything can happen, anything can end
Don't try to fight it, don't try to save me"

She's a woman in love
And he's gonna break her heart to pieces
She don't want to see
She's a woman in love, but it's not me

Well alright, do what you want
Don't try to talk, don't say nothin'
She used to be the kind of woman
You have and you hold, she could understand the problem
She let the little things go

She's a woman in love
And he's gonna break her heart to pieces
But she don't want to know
She's a woman in love, she can't let go

Time after time, night after night
She would look up at me
And say she was lonely
I don't understand the world today
I don't understand what she needed
I gave her everything she threw it all away
On nothin'
She's a woman in love
