Long John Baldry - Let the heartaches begin 1968

#1 in UK

I can hear the guitars start to play
And very soon they say
I was a fool to turn my love away
And with each glass of wine I feel a glow
And very soon I know
I was a fool to let my baby go

So let the heartaches begin
I can't help it, I can't win
I've lost that girl for sure
Tears won't help anymore
Yes let the heartaches begin
I can't help it, I can't win
I've lost that girl for sure
Now she's gone
I can't hold back the tears anymore

I can see the couples dancin' through the night
They hold each other tight
As they dance of love till the morning light
The soft embraces that they seem to share
Just make me feel aware
Of the lonliness I find so hard to bear

So let the heartaches begin
I can't help it, I can't win
I've lost that girl for sure
My tears won't help anymore
Yes let the heartaches, heartaches begin
I just can't help it,you know that I just can't win
I've lost that girl for sure
And now that she's gone
I can't hold back the tears anymore

Macaulay says of the recording session "Long John Baldry sings it extraordinarily well, thanks to three-quarters of a bottle of Courvoisier".[4]

The song also charted in the United States, peaking at #88 on the Billboard Hot 100, and in the Republic of Ireland, the song reached #2 in the charts.

The title of the B-side song is "Annabella (Who Flies To Me When She's Lonely)".[5]
