A little bitty tear    (video)    (midi)

 

    C7 - F - C - G - C

 

    C                                G         G7                          C

A little bitty tear let me down, spoiled my act as a clown,

              C7                                 F                C             G                C

I had it made up not to make a frown, but a little bitty tear let me down.

 

                       C                                     G                   G7                        C   

1. When you said you were leaving tomorrow, that today was our last day,

       C7                          F                       C                      G            C

    I said there’d be no sorrow that I’d laugh when you walked away.

 

+  CHORUS          +  C7 - F - C - G - C

 

        C                                   G                   G7                                       C

2. I said I’d laugh when you left me, pull a funny as you went out the door,

                 C7                         F               C              G               C  

    that I’d have another one waitin’, I’d wave goodbye as you go. But

 

+  CHORUS            +  C7 - F - C - G - C

 

      C                                 G                      G7                               C

3. Everything went like I planned it, and I really put on quite a show,

               C7                         F

    in my heart I felt I could stand it,

                 C                        G                         C

    till you walked with your grip through the door. Then....

 

    C                                G         G7                          C

A little bitty tear let me down, spoiled my act as a clown,

              C7                                 F                C             G                C

I had it made up not to make a frown, but a little bitty tear let me down.

   C              G                C          C             G               C

A little bitty tear let me down, a little bitty tear let me down.
