Your Beatin' Heart
from "Your Cheatin' Heart by Hank Williams

Your beatin’ heart will make you weep
You’ll gasp for air and try to sleep
But sleep won’t come the whole night through
Your beatin’ heart might quit on you

You put on pounds and block your veins
You’ll hit roll around and scream in pain
You’ll tell yourself - it isn’t true
Your beatin’ heart could quit on you

MUSICAL INTERLUDE

Your ailin’ heart will make you pay
for the fat grams you eat today
The time will come when you’ll turn blue
Your beatin' heart will quit on you

You put on pounds and block your veins
You’ll roll around and scream in pain
Call 911 to rescue you
Your beatin’ heart will quit on you
