It Keeps Right On A-Hurtin'. Johnny Tillotson. Top of the charts in '62. #1. F C7 I cry myself to sleep each night, F Wishing I could hold you tight. F G Life seems so empty since you went a..way. F C7 The pillow where you lay your head, F Now holds my lonely tears instead, G F And it keeps right on a-hurtin' since you're gone. CHORUS: G F It keeps right on a-hurtin', every minute of the day. G F Every hour you're away I feel so lone..lonely. F And I can't help it, I don't think I can go on, G F And it keeps right on a-hurtin' since you're gone. #2. F C7 They say a man should never cry, F But when I see you passin' by, F G My heart breaks down and cries a million tears. F C7 You broke my heart and set me free, F But you forgot your memory, G F And it keeps right on a-hurtin' since you're gone. CHORUS: REPEAT #2. CHORUS: A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
