"Your Cheatin' Heart" as written by and Sr. Williams....
Your cheatin' heart
Will make you weep
You'll cry and cry
And try to sleep

But sleep won't come
The whole night through
Your cheatin' heart
Will tell on you

When tears come down
Like falling rain
You'll toss around
And call my name

You'll walk the floor
The way I do
Your cheatin' heart
Will tell on you

Your cheatin' heart
Will pine some day
And crave the love
You threw away

The time will come
When you'll be blue
Your cheatin' heart
Will tell on you

When tears come down
Like falling rain
You'll toss around
And call my name

You'll walk the floor
The way I do
Your cheatin' heart
Will tell on you

    General CommentNo comments on this song? WTF?

    Each line is 4 syllables and each verse is 8 lines. Amazing he could write such brilliant poetry while staying true to such a rigid structure.

    Love the bitterness in this one. Only one that comes close in terms of bitterness is Del Shannon 10-15 years later.
