LOVE HURTS: EVERLY BROTHERS (: F#) (Boudleaux Bryant) (92 – 4/4)

This Tab is based on their slow version, recorded on July 13, 1960 in the F#-key.
I transposed the chords one tone up to the G-key, for easy playing.
To play along with the original, tune your guitar one tone down, or
transpose all the chords one tone down.

They also recorded an up-beat version in their 'That'll Be The Day' style,
I don't know when that was recorded; probably in the mid sixties.
It's shorter and it's got a set beat for the whole song in the A key:
A, F#m, D, E7, every chord lasts 2 measures of 4-counts.

|G    |: Chord(s) and Measure of 4-counts.

Intro:

       1 2 3 4        1 2 3 4
G     |G   F C|G     |G   F D   |
                            LOVE

Verse-1:

G           |Em          |C           |D
HURTS,  LOVE SCARS,  LOVE WOUNDS,  AND MARRS.

   |G          |Em         |C         |D
ANY HEART,  NOT TOUGH,  NOR STRONG   E-NOUGH.

                |G     B7           |Em
TO TAKE A LOT OF PAIN, TAKE A LOT OF PAIN.

Dm            |C                    |D
LOVE IS LIKE A CLOUD, HOLDS A LOT OF RAIN.

    |G    |G  F C   |G     |G  F D  |
LOVE HURTS,     LOVE HURTS.      I'M

Verse-2:

G        |Em        |C    |D
YOUNG,  I KNOW,  BUT EVEN  SO.

         |G         |Em        |C             |D
I  KNOW A THING   OR TWO,  I'VE LEARNED   FROM YOU.

                     |G     B7              |Em
I'VE REALLY LEARNED A LOT,  REALLY LEARNED A LOT,

Dm            |C                          |D
LOVE IS LIKE A STOVE,  BURNS YOU WHEN IT'S HOT.

    |G    |G  F C   |G    |G7    |
LOVE HURTS,     LOVE HURTS.

Chorus:

C                 |B7    Em    |B7       Em      |B7     Em  |
SOME FOOLS RAVE OF HAPPI-NESS,  BLISSFUL-NESS, TO-GETHER-NESS.

                                                             / (Break)
A                   |A                  |A7                 |D
SOME FOOLS FOOL THEM-SELVES I GUESS, BUT THEY'RE NOT FOOLING ME.

Verse-3 + Outro:

No chord       |G      B7         |Em
I KNOW IT ISN'T TRUE,  NO IT ISN'T TRUE,

Dm            |C                     |D
LOVE IS JUST A LIE,  MADE TO MAKE YOU BLUE.

                          (Fade out       )         
    |G    |G  F C   |G    |G  F C   |G    
LOVE HURTS,     LOVE HURTS,     LOVE HURTS.
