Friday afternoon country music lyrics – Sept. 19, 2008

If you’re curious why I’m posting these, check out my explanation.

Up today, a wonderful Johnny Paycheck tune – The Real Mr. Heartache.

“The Real Mr. Heartache”

Written by Johnny Paycheck

There we were all three of us sitting side by side
Three guys who have loved her, but to someone she lied
Now everybody’s wondering, just who’s the lonely guy?
So will the real Mr. Heartache please stand up and cry?

Chorus

The real Mr. Heartache is every guy she’s known
Loved by her, left by her with a heartache all his own
Everytime I hear that question the number multiplies
Will the real Mr. Heartache please stand up and cry?

Verse 2
There we were all three of us standing side by side
While six little teardrops tickled from our eyes
And I even see a stranger that seems to qualify
So will the real Mr. Heartache please stand up and cry?
