Where I Ought To Be 
Recorded by Skeeter Davis
Written by Harlan Howard

G A#7 G
I got your wedding invitation
D7 F D7
I'm surprised you thought of me
Am D7 F D7
But I don't believe your wedding
Is just where I ought to be

A#7 G
For you put your arms around her
D7 F D7
Kiss her lips so tenderly
Am D7 F D7
As she standing there beside you
That's just where I oughta to be

Like a fool I introduced you
I said baby meet my friend
Never thought that I could lose you
But I lost you there and then

G A#7 G
I took the diamond ring you gave me
D7 F D7
Threw it way out in sea
Am D7 F D7
And I had an awful feeling
That's just where I ought to be

Repeat 3,4
