Lyrics

The lyrics of the version performed by the Black Mountain Boys are as follows;

These heartaches now are on [their] way
What makes you want to be that way
You cheated on me and you lied
You put teardrops in my eyes

(Chorus)
I found out what they say is true
I hope some day that you'll be blue
And then you'll know dear why I cry
With these teardrops in my eyes

I heard the rumors all around
That some day you'd let me down
I turn my head when [faced] [?]
Cause it puts teardrops in my eyes

Chorus

I never thought you'd let me down
But now [I at last] understand
You wrecked my life [?]
You'll have to pay for it somehow

Chorus
