There's a Heartache Followin' Me - chords, tab and comments


Jim Reeves wrote a few songs himself; this one co-written with "the smiling irishman" James O'Gwynn, and first released on "Good 'n' Country" 1963. It has lingered on in my head since my childhood, though I didn't pick it up myself until recently.
A                         E7               A
sometimes they ask me if I'm really happy now
A                    Bm7         A
I say "sure I never loved her anyhow"
     D                             A     Amaj7   Bm7
but inside I long for you and the way it used to be
        A                     E7                 A
I look around and there's a heartache followin' me

A            E7                       A
I pawned my ring and everything that tied me to the past
   B7                          E     B7        E7
I say I never loved her never meant for it to last
       D                              A    Amaj7  Bm7
but I know it's just a game and the loser's always me
         A                      E7              A
I look around and there's a heartache followin' me
