Heartache By The Number by Guy Mitchell


Heartaches By The Number
Guy Mitchell
Written by Harlan Howard

Peaked at # 1 in 1959
Remake by Johnny Tillotson hit # 35 in 1965

INTRO:

CHORUS
Heartaches by the number, troubles by the score
Everyday 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 one was when you left me
I never knew that I could hurt this way
And heartache number two was when you *come* back again
You came back but never meant to stay

Yes, I've got
CHORUS

'
Heartache number three was when you called me
And said that you were comin' back to stay
With hopeful heart I waited for your knock on the door
I waited but you must have lost your way

Yes, I've got
CHORUS

TRANSCRIBER'S NOTE: *come*: logic and English grammar dictate that this should be "came",
as in the next line, but Mitchell clearly DOES sing "come."
