Song request for Seven Lonely Days. 
Do you have a favorite Patsy Cline song?

By Earl Shuman, Alden Shuman, and Marshall Brown in 1953

Moderate Swing 4/4, Key of F

There's a little run that you play before the F chord. The single notes in the r.h. are:
G, G#, A, C, A, G, F.

Another little right hand walk down that is played before C7 is:
G, G, F#, F, E

F                 Bb               F
Seven lonely days make one lonely week
C7                  F         Bb      F
Seven lonely nights make one lonely me
F                         Bb               F
Ever since the time  you told me we were through
C7                  F            Bb         F
Seven lonely days I cried and I cried for you

F                               Bb   F     Bb
Oh my darling you're crying boo hoo hoo hoo
                  C7/E                  F Bb F
There's no use in denying I cried for you
                              C7        Bb
It was your favorite pastime  making me blue
                  C7                    F
Last week was the last time I cried for you (2x)


F = F/CFA

Bb = Bb/DF

F = F/AC

C7 = C/BbEG

F = F/ACF

Bb = Bb/BbDF

F = ACF

F = AC

Bb = Bb/DF

F = F/AC

C7 = C/BbEG

F = F/ACF

Bb = Bb/BbDF

F/ACF

F = C/ACDF

Bb = Bb/FBbD

F = F/C

Bb = Bb/FBbD

C7/E = E/EBbC

F = F/ACF

Bb = Bb/BbD

F = F/ACF

Bb = Bb/FBbD

F = F/C

Bb = F/FBbD

C7 = C/EBbC

F = F/ACF

C7 = C/EBbC

F = F/ACF

Bb = Bb/BbDF

F = F/ACF

Now, what I hear in the left hand are walk up, walk down runs.
This is a great finger exercise. Practice these single notes:

F, A, C, A

Bb, D, F, D

F, F, E, D

C, E, G, E  (2x)

F, F, Bb, F, F, C, D, E

F, A, C, A (2x)

Bb, D, F, D

F, F, E, D

C, E, G, E (2x)

F, F, Bb, F

A, G#, A, G, F

C, F

F, G, A

Bb, F

Bb, G, F#, G, F#, F

E, C

C, D, E

F, Bb, F

A, A, G#, A, G, F

C, F

F, G, A

Bb, F, Bb

C, E, G, E

C, C, Bb, G

F, A, C, A, F

C, E, G, E, C

F, A, C, A

Bb, D, F, D

F, F, E, D, C, F

I think Patsy Cline's version is the best. I think a solo piano sounds good, too.

[C] Seven Lonely Days, [F] make one lonely [C] week

There's no use in [G7] denying, I cried for [C] you
[P] It was your favorite [C] pastime, making me [F] blue
Last week was the [G7] last time, I cried for [C] you.

Seven hankies blue, I filled with my tears
Seven letters, too, I filled with my fears
Guess it never pays, to make your lover blue
Seven Lonely Days, I cried and cried for you.
