You're a Heartbreaker

Rating:
4.2 / 5

Words & Music: Jack Sallee

You're a heartbreaker,
You're a love faker,
A heartbreaker playing with fire.
You're a tear snatcher,
You're a quarrel patcher,
But you can't break my heart anymore,
For I just found someone else who's sure to take your place.
Someone I can always trust and to fill this empty space.

You're a heartbreaker,
You're a love faker,
But you can't break my heart anymore.

You're a smooth talker,
You're a real cool walker,
But now you have talked out of turn.
You're a high stepper,
You're a eye-catcher,
But you won't catch my glances anymore.
For I just found someone else who's sure to take your place,
Someone I can always trust and to fill this empty space.

You're a heartbreaker
You're a love faker,
But you can't break my heart anymore.

You're a heart breaker
You're a love faker,
A heartbreaker playing with fire.
You're a tear snatcher,
You're a quarrel patcher,
But you can't break my heart anymore.
For I've just found someone else who's sure to take your place.
Someone I can always trust and to fill this empty space.

You're a heartbreaker,
You're a love faker,
But you can't break my heart anymore.

Catchy tune, but not among the best Sun tracks.

Catchy but a bit repetitive. Not up to par with the other Sun material.

One of the better Sun recordings.Glad for the lyrics,I can never remember them.

I must have played this a thousand times over the years, great recording and Elvis vocal.

A good, but lesser Sun track. I give it three stars.

Love it. It was on the UK release of Elvis's Golden Records which I purchased in the autumn of 1963 - my very first Elvis LP. A very pretty tune and, for me, very nostalgic.

Not quite up to par with the rest of the Sun stuff, but a fun track and I never skip it.

I've loved this song since I was a kid. I look at it as Elvis' answer to folk music in the early days.

When I purchased the UK version of Golden Records this song and I Forgot To Remember To Forget were initially my favourite tracks. I have changed the order of favourites through the years but this song, so joyful and full of energy, using that young country boy voice makes it a classic for me.

This is the first song that was written for Elvis. Would've been a good song for the "Love me tender" soundtrack.

Like it, even the echo is great. 4 stars.

This is such a magnificent and fun song and Elvis' renditions of it are all brilliant. I've never skipped this song. I rate this song and Elvis' renditions of it 5 Stars. My favorite era of Elvis' career will definitely always be the 1950's.

4-stars from me; can't get it out of mind every time I listen to it. The flip side "Milkcow Blues Boogie" supposedly the "A Side" or hit side wasn't as good in my opinion.
