"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.
