"Heartaches by the Number" as written by and Harlan Howard....
Heartache number one was when you left me,
I never knew that I could feel this way.
And heartache number two was when you came back again
You came back but never meant to stay.

Now I've got heartaches by the number, troubles by the score,
Every day you love me less, each day I love you more.
Yes, I've got heartaches by the number, a love that I can't win
But the day that I stop countin', that's the day my world will end.

Heartache number three was when you called me,
You said that you were coming home to stay.
With hopeful heart I waited for your knock on the door,
I waited but you must have lost your way.

Now I've got heartaches by the number, troubles by the score,
Every day you love me less, each day I love you more.
Yes, I've got heartaches by the number, a love that I can't win
But the day that I stop countin', that's the day my world will end.
