Song facts

From Wikipedia:

Lonesome Tears in My Eyes” is a song written by Johnny Burnette, Dorsey Burnette, Paul Burlison and Al Mortimer. It was first released by co-writer Johnny Burnette and his Rock ‘n’ Roll Trio in March 1957.

The Beatles version

The Beatles, recorded “Lonesome Tears in My Eyes” “live in studio” for the BBC radio programme Pop Go The Beatles on 10 July 1963, and later transmitted on 23 July. In 1994, their recording was commercially released on the album Live at the BBC. The song also influenced a later Beatles song, “The Ballad of John and Yoko” in that the outro guitar riff to that song was inspired by the corresponding intro guitar riff on “Lonesome Tears in My Eyes“.

Lyrics

Oh baby baby baby, blues and sorrow
And I love you tomorrow
Just suit you just fine
Oh baby baby baby, blues and sorrow
I love you tomorrow
Just suit you just fine

I can't forget that you told me
So many promising lies
I'm a-tryin' to forget these
lonesome tears in my eyes

You've broken my heart, gonna do it again
I can't forget the spell that I'm in
Can't forget that you told me
So many promising lies
I'm a-trying to forget these
lonesome tears in my eyes

You've broken my heart, gonna do it again
I can't forget the spell that I'm in
I can't forget that you told me
So many promising lies
I'm a-trying to forget these
Lonesome tears in my eyes

Oh baby baby baby, blues and sorrow
And I love you tomorrow
Just suit you just fine
Oh baby baby baby, blues and sorrow
I love you tomorrow
Just suit you just fine

I can't forget that you told me
So many promising lies
I'm a-trying to forget these
Lonesome tears in my eyes
