Intro:

	Eb     Ab/Eb       Eb     Ab/Eb
	/ / / /  / / / /   / / / /  / / / /

Verse 1:

	Eb                              Ab/Eb
	For every little kiss there's a little teardrop
	Eb                              Ab/Eb
	For every single thrill there's another heartache
	Gm
	The road is rough
	Cm           [1: Ab  2,3: Fm7]
	The going gets tough

Chorus:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/l/lou-rawls/128186.html ]
	          Bb  Bbmaj7 Gm             F
	[1: Yes] love        is a hurtin' thing
	Ab Abmaj7      Fm      Bb
	Oh, love is a hurtin' thing

Verse 2:

	When you're in my arms I'm a king on a throne
	But when we're apart I walk the streets alone
	One day happiness
	The next day, loneliness

Bridge:

	Eb6                               Ab            Bb
	When love brings so much joy why must it bring such pain
	Eb6                         Ab   Bb
	Guess it's a mystery that nobody can explain

	Eb       Ab       Eb       Ab
	/ / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /

	Gb  Eb   Cb Ab/Bb
	/ / / /  / / / /

[repeat intro]

Verse 3:

	Maybe I'm a fool to keep on loving you
	'Cause there may come a time you'll break my heart in two
	But I want you so
	I want you though I know that

Coda:

	 Bb  Bbmaj7 Gm             F
	Love        is a hurtin' thing
	Bb Bbmaj7 Gm             F
	Oh, love is a hurtin' thing  [fade]
