Harlan Howard (1927-2002), a native of Detroit, was one of the most prolific and successful of the “old school” Nashville songwriters. While living and working in Los Angeles, he enjoyed a few minor successes, before the break-out hits “Pick Me Up On Your Way Down” and “Heartaches by the Number” led him to move to Nashville in 1960. There, he became an immediate success, his songs recorded by innumerable country artists. Among his biggest hits was the Patsy Cline classic “I Fall to Pieces.” A member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Fame, he was a force in country music until his death.

    He was born and raised around Jacksonville a nice young man not the kind to kill
    But the jealous fight and the flashing blade
    Sent him on the run through the everglades
    Runnin' like the dog through the everglades
    Well the Possy went in and he came back out

    She called me baby baby all night long used to hold and kiss me till the dawn
    And one day I awoke and she was gone there's no more baby baby all night long
    She called me baby baby all night long kissed my tears away when things went wrong
    What I'd give if she'd just come back home and call me baby baby all night long

    Now, I've got heartaches by the number, troubles by the score
    Every day you love me less, each day I love you more
    Heartaches by the number, a love that I can't win
    But the day that I stop counting, that's the day my world will end
    And heartache number one was when you left me
    Heartaches By The Number  -  167 plays
    The bills are all due and the babies need shoes but I'm busted
    Cotton is down to a quarter a pound but I'm busted
    Got a cow that's gone dry and a hen that won't lay
    A big stack of bills that gets bigger each day
    The county's gonna haul my belongings away I'm busted
