Origins: Shame On Me

I'm trying to hunt down the original source of a song that's uncited in an old collection I ran across.

The title is "Shame on Me" and the a verse/ the chorus is:

Shame on me for loving you
I forgot what a woman like you can do
Shame on me for being me
I forgot that I was free
Shame on me

You say that I should change
Well I'm the only thing I know
I hope you find you can get along
There are lots of things I should have done
A long time ago, I guess I've always known

Anyone recognize it?

The only Google reference I can find is your post here, M. Sorry.

My band covered that song. The original is by Sumner McKane.

Here is Sumner McKane's web site, but I don't see any mention there of a song called SHAME ON ME.

I listened to samples of several of his works and they seem to be all instrumentals of a rather meditative "new agey" flavor.

I doubt this is it, but I recall a Bobby Bare country song in the 60s called "Shame On Me." It was later redone by Donna Fargo. Your lyrics don't quite fit it, but they're not that far off: "Shame on me for hurting you/What can I say, what can I do? Last night I was blind but today I see/I figured wrong; shame on me."

For anyone looking in the future:

The song is by Matt Troxell, who is also the singer. Sumner McKane produced it and played many of the instruments on it.
