A Little Bitty Tear - chords, tab and comments

Though written by the well-known artist Hank Cochran and recorded by many others, this song is best known performed by Burl Ives, who was the first one to record it, in February 1961. His warm, wistful voice and humming way of singing suited it well. Cochran passed away on July 15, 2010 at the age of 74, and was posthumously inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2014. Since 1974 he'd been member of Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
D                                 A
when you said you were leaving tomorrow
       A7                D
that today was our last day
    D7                G
I said there'd be no sorrow
Em7       D          A7          D
that I'd laugh when you walked away
D                                A
but a little bitty tear let me down
A7                    D
spoiled my act as a clown
          D7                     G
I had it made up not to make a frown
Em7    D            A7          D
but a little bitty tear let me down
I normally don't use D major much, but I've put it up here to play 3 of Ives' bestsellers medley: Little Bitty Tear, Funny Way of Laughin' and Pearly Shells.
