Your Cheating Heart
Joni James Lyrics


Your cheating will make you weep
You'll cry and cry and try to sleep
But sleep won't come the whole night through
Your cheating heart will tell on you

[Repeat: x2]
When tears come down like falling rain
You'll toss around and call my name
You'll walk the floor the way I do
Your cheating heart will tell on you

Regarding the low end of the sound, that resulted from the ribbon microphone being used at Universal Recording Studios in Chicago, where Joni recorded her first two years.  When she moved to New York City, there they used a Telefunken 47 mike and that brought out the highs both in her voice and in the orchestra.  She did come back to Chicago in 1957 and did more sessions at Universal, including two songs using the old mike, "Nothing Will Ever Change" and "Does It Show."

My dad's favorite song! And one of mine. The background on this song was unreal and it complemented her voice perfectly. Had a great beat and low end that is not heard on today's eqpt. Please bring back the large speaker cabinets.
