One of my favorite songs...just a couple of corrections, if I may. We will use the key of E by way of example.
On the verse, you left out the 6 and the return to the 1.

E G# C#m E7
My name should be trouble, my name should be woe

For trouble and heartache, is all I know

Then, just a small change on the last 2 lines of the bridge:

They say that love is the answer
B F# B B7
But love never came my way-ay-ay

Just wanted to help out a little in case anyone else was having difficulty while playing along with Conway Twitty on YouTube. (Its actually in the key of F on most versions, so I just used a capo...you'll see what I mean when you try to play the intro. I think they either used a capo or tuned the guitars a half step up.)

Well...that didnt work out quite right. When I typed it, the chord changes were over the correct words, but when I posted it, it changed. I hope you can sort out where the proper changes go Krazykhat and re-post?
