Your Cheatin' Heart - Ukulele Chords

This is another favourite from the N'Ukes set, and also another easy one for beginners to play - Your Cheatin' Heart by Hank Williams. Just play in a slow swingy country style.



[G7] Your cheatin' [C]heart, [Cmaj7]
[C7]Will make you [F]weep,
You'll cry and [G7]cry,
And try to [C]sleep,[G7]
But sleep won't [C]come, [Cmaj7]
[C7]The whole night [F]through,
Your cheatin [G7]heart, will tell on [C]you...[C7]

When tears come [F]down,
Like falling [C]rain,
You'll toss [D7]around,
And call my [G7]name,
You'll walk the [C]floor, [Cmaj7]
[C7]The way I [F]do,
Your cheatin'[G7] heart, will tell on[C] you[F] [C]...

[G7]Your cheatin'[C] heart, [Cmaj7]
[C7]Will pine some [F]day,
And rue the [G7]love,
You threw [C]away,[C7]
The time will [C] come,[Cmaj7]
[C7] Whenyou'll be [F]blue,
Your cheatin' [G7]heart, will tell on [C]you...[C7]

When tears come [F]down,
Like falling [C]rain,
You'll toss [D7]around,
And call my [G7]name,
You'll walk the [C]floor, [Cmaj7]
[C7]The way I [F]do,
Your cheatin'[G7] heart, will tell on[C] you[F] [C]... [G7] [C]


And here is his son playing it (rather hard to find video footage of the first Hank!)
