Your cheatin' heart will tell on you

Your Cheatin' Heart has been covered by a multitude of artists. Hank Williams Sr. wrote the song when talking about problems with his ex-wife Audrey in 1952. He said one day that Audrey's "cheatin' heart" would pay, and immediately began writing the words to the song. After 11 number one hit songs, Hank Williams died in 1953. He was 29 years old. He had struggled all his life with chronic pain caused by spina bifida, which likely led to his alcoholism and drug abuse.

Your cheatin' heart will make you weep,
You'll cry and cry and try to sleep.
But sleep won't come the whole night through,
Your cheatin' heart will tell on you.

When tears come down like fallin' rain.
You'll toss around and call my name.
You'll walk the floor the way I do,
Your cheatin' heart will tell on you.

Your cheatin' heart will pine some day
And crave the love you threw away.
The time will come when you'll be blue,
Your cheatin' heart will tell on you.
