HANK WILLIAMS MEDLEY
Recorded by Conway Twitty
[F] ...I tried so hard my dear to show
That you're my ev'ry [C] dream
Yet you're afraid each thing I do
Is but some evil [F] scheme
In anger unkind words are said
That makes the teardrops [Bb] start
Why [C] can't I free your doubtful mind
And melt your COLD, COLD [F] HEART.
Today I passed you [C] on the [F] street
And my [Bb] heart fell at your [F] feet
I CAN'T [C] HELP IT
If I'm still in love with [F] you
Another love was [C] by your [F] side
And he [Bb] looked so satis-[F] fied
I CAN'T [C] HELP IT
If I'm still in love with [F] you.
CHANGE TO KEY OF G:
[G] ...The news is out, all [C] over town
That you've been [G] seen, out runnin' [D] 'round
I know that [G] I should go, but [C] then
I just can't [G] go, YOU [D] WIN A-[G] GAIN.
If today the Sun should set on all my [C] hopes and cares
There is [D] one whose smiling face that God would [G] see [D]
For she'll [G] walk along beside me up those [C] golden stairs
Oh, THEY'LL [D] NEVER, NEVER TAKE HER LOVE FROM [G] ME.
CHANGE TO KEY OF A: BRIDGE TO D:
[A] ...[D] WEDDING BELLS are ringing in the [A] chapel
That [E] should be ringing now for you and [A] me [A7]
At [D] home alone I hang my head in [A] sorrow
Those [E] WEDDING BELLS will never ring for [A] me.
CHANGE TO KEY OF E:
[E] ...So TAKE THESE CHAINS FROM MY HEART and set me [B7] free
You've grown cold and no longer care for [E] me
All my faith in you is gone, but the [A] heartaches linger on
TAKE THESE [B7] CHAINS FROM MY HEART and set me [E] free.
CHANGE TO KEY OF F:
[F] ...YOUR CHEATIN' HEART will make you [Bb] weep
You'll cry and [C] cry and try to [F] sleep
But sleep won't come the whole night [Bb] through
YOUR CHEATIN' [C] HEART will [F] tell on [Bb] you- [C] -ou [F] -ou.
