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
	The road is rough
	Cm           [1: Ab  2,3: Fm7]
	The going gets tough


	          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


	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

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


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