Good Morning, HeartacheWords & Music by Dan Fisher, Ervin Drake & Irene Higginbotham
Recorded by Billie Holiday, 1944
Bm Bm7/E Goodmorning heartache, you old gloomy sight; E Bm D6 Fdim Goodmorning heartache, thought we said goodbye last night. F#m Am G#m7 Gm7 I turned and tossed until it seemed you had gone; F#m7 Bm7 E7/9 B9 But here you are with the dawn. Bm Bm7/E Wish I'd forget you, but you're here to stay; E Bm D6 Fdim It seems I met you when my love went away. F#m Am G#m7 Gm7 Now every day I start by saying to you, F#m7 Bm7 Cdim E "Good morning, Heartache, what's new?" Bridge: G#7 C#m G#7 C# C#7 F#m Stop haunting me now; can't shake you no how. C#m7 F#7 B Just leave me alone B7 Gm7 F7 Bm7 E7 I've got those Monday blues straight through Sunday blues. Bm Bm7/E Goodmorning heartache; here we go again. E Bm D6 Fdim Goodmorning heartache, you're the one who knew me when. F#m Am G#m7 Gm7 Might as well get used to you hangin' around F#m7 F7 Fdim E6 Goodmorning heartache...sit down.
The attribution to Holiday here is more honorary than accurate; this chart owes far more to a Nancy Wilson version whose origins I don't know in sufficient detail to cite. Thanks to recent visitor Bob Ford for the suggestion.
