Jim Reeves

James Travis "Jim" Reeves (August 20, 1923 – July 31, 1964) was an American country and popular music singer-songwriter. With records charting from the 1950s to the 1980s, he became well known as a practitioner of the Nashville sound (a mixture of older country-style music with elements of popular music). Known as "Gentleman Jim", his songs continued to chart for years after his death. Reeves died at age 40 in the crash of a private airplane. He is a member of both the Country Music and Texas Country Music Halls of Fame. more »

I'm calling to tell you it's over
Yes, darling, you're now free to go
You're saying you're sorry you hurt me
But you hurt me much more than you know

You're asking me where this call comes from
Oh, I hope that you won't end up here
If your new romance turns out a failure
Here's where to find me, my dear

I'm just on the blue side of lonesome
Right next to the Heartbreak Hotel
In a tavern that's known as Three Teardrops
On a barstool, not doin' so well

The hands on the clock never alter
For things never change in this place
There's no present, no past, no future
We're the ones who have lost in love's race

I'm just on the blue side of lonesome
Right next to the Heartbreak Hotel
In a tavern that's known as Three Teardrops
On a barstool, not doin' so well
