    Written by: Turk Prujan & Pat Kennedy

    -----------------------
    Chucky Owens & The Dots were a vocal Quartet out of Los Angeles County that formed in 1959-1960. Since they sang in a similar style to The Ink Spots, they sometimes were billed as "The Sensational Ink Spots" noting that they weren't "pretending" to be The Ink Spots but simply singing in the "Ink Spots style". Owens had previously sang with Charles Fuqua's New Ink Spots successfully as a rhythm singer. Before that, he sang in stage productions and nightclubs in Los Angeles. Owens was born in 1924 in Birmingham Alabama and died while on tour in Winema Lake Oregon in 1980 at the age of 58. His doctor had recommended that he undergo open heart surgery before the tour but Owens said he would rather sing.

    LYRICS:
    Crazy Heart why must you be so mean to me?
    Crazy Heart why do such funny things to me?
    Every time I think I win I find out I really loose
    Every time I think I'm in I wind up with the blues

    Crazy Heart why must you be so mean to me?
    Have a heart, don't you know that I care?
    No matter what you think of me
    Why must you treat me so heartlessly?
    Crazy Heart just for once think of me. Show less
