                A Little Bitty Tear:Burl Ives.
#1 in 1961.

INTRO: C F C G7 C

CHORUS:
C                          G7
A little bitty tear let me down,
                    C
spoiled my act as a clown.
                               F
I had it made up not to make a frown,
          C            G7          C
oh, but a little bitty tear let me down.

#1.
C                                G7
When you said you were leaving tomorrow,
                        C
that today was our last day,
                     F
I said there'd be no sorrow,
          C          G7          C
that I'd  laugh when you walked away.

CHORUS:
C                              G7
But a little bitty tear let me down,
                    C
spoiled my act as a clown.
                               F
I had it made up not to make a frown,
          C            G7          C
oh, but a little bitty tear let me down.

C                              G7
I said I'd laugh when you left me,
                                 C
pull a funny as you went out the door..
                          F
that I'd have another one waitin',
    C          G7         C
I'd wave good..bye as you go..But..

CHORUS:
C                          G7
A little bitty tear let me down,
                    C
spoiled my act as a clown.
                               F
I had it made up not to make a frown,
          C            G7          C
oh, but a little bitty tear let me down.

C                      G7
Everything went like I planned it,
                            C
and I really put on quite a show.
                           F
In my heart I felt I could stand it,
        C                G7               C
Til you walked with your grip through the door.


CHORUS:
C                                G7
Then, a little bitty tear let me down,
                    C
spoiled my act as a clown.
                               F
I had it made up not to make a frown,
          C            G7          C
oh, but a little bitty tear let me down.

OUTRO:
C              G7          C
