INTRO:
|C/G |
                              
VERSE 1:                              
          C/G                                   Em
Oh! when, you go out with,  another guy, how it hurts my pride,
     C/G                                             Em
Oh!  you'll never know how it, hurts me so, way down deep inside.
F                     Em   
I feel so bad,  but,  I don't feel mad,
F                 D
What can I do,  I love only you.


CHORUS 1:
          C/G                      Am
And so I, swallowed up, swallowed, swallowed my pride, 
    C/G           Am                           F      F# - G
And kept it, yes, kept it inside, because I've heard.
NC                          C/G
That pride is such a little word.


VERSE 3:
C/G                                        Em
I took you out just the other night,  to a movie show,
    C/G                                              Em
Oh! Right at the end you saw a friend and said you'd have to go.
F                   Em
You walked away and left me alone, 
F                         D
What could I say, when he walked you home.


CHORUS 2:
           C/G                  Am
I had to,  swallow up, swallow, swallow my pride, 
    C/G           Am                           F      F# - G     
And kept it, yes, kept it inside, because I've heard,
NC                          C/G
That pride is such a little word.

The day will come, we'll be as one, 
    F               D
And I'll go to her, but until then.

And kept it, yes, kept it inside, because I've heard.
NC                          C/G
That pride is such a little word.


CODA:(Fade)

F                      C/G
That pride is such a little word.

Notes.
1. Technically, Ray was perhaps not quite as strong a singer as some of his 
contemporaries (but measured against voices like Billy Thorpe, Max Merritt, Normie 
Rowe and Tony Worsley, that's no criticism) but he had a smooth, pleasing and 
instantly recognisable tenor voice with a particularly emotive upper register, 
which he used to great effect on hits like "Pride" and "Fool Fool Fool".

Wouldn't put him in anywhere near the same league as Billy Thorpe. To me his voice seemed thin and without much power, and his destruction of Tennessee Waltz (I don't know if he originated it) was truly dreadful.

Billy Thorpe had much greater range, power and could sing a much wider variety of songs.

That said, I did enjoy his hits.

I have to admit to owning the original Festival 'Ray Brown and the Whispers' album, with the cover photo taken on Bondi Beach broadwalk. He had a very different appeal to the bluntness of the then less-refined Billy Thorpe (that changed as he musically matured), and his songs hit the note for my teenage generation.
