The front cover photograph does not feature Bobby, who was out touring and was surprised to see that United Artists Records had chosen a female model instead.  “I Know You Better than That” is listed simply as “Know You Better than That” on the back cover.
Blue Autumn, falling leaves of red and gold Pretty colors, I am told But I see only shades of blue Because I’m losing you - “Blue Autumn”   You go by, with some other guy While I stand here alone You don’t think that I should cry But I’m not made of stone - “It Hurts Me”   You want me to be your slave I tell you baby, you just better behave...   I’ve been keeping my eyes on you all day Just to make sure you didn’t go astray I watched you talk to every boy in town Now I’m gonna put my foot down - “I Know You Better than That”
WITH PEN IN HAND The Songwriting of Bobby Goldsboro
