You Always Hurt the One You Love

Words & Music by Allan Roberts & Doris Fisher
Recorded by The Mills Brothers, 1944

(A7) D      DM7		   D6
You always hurt the one you love

    D        DM7      D7      Em7    A7
The one you shouldn't hurt at all;

    Em      B+       Em7      Em6
You always take the sweetest rose

    Em7      B+        A    A7   D   Fdim  A7  
And crush it till the pet - als fall;

    D       D9       DM7      D6
You always break the kindest heart

       Em    Em7      G/B     A7sus4   A7
With a hasty word you can't re-call;

    D   DM7			     D6
So If I broke your heart last night,

First Time:

        G      G9       A        D   DM7   Em7  A7
It's because I love you most of all.

Last Time:

        G      G9       A    A7   D   Bm7  Gdim   D
It's because I love you most of all.
