My Poor Old Heart

Lyrics

I’ve been a fool for love ever since I was a baby just a rockin’ in the cradle
As a rule I was the kind who laid his feelings right down on the table
Gave my world so many times just to see them tear it apart
Whoa Lord have a little bit of pity on my poor old heart

I wonder just how many times a broken heart can mend
Oh when I get back on my feet Lord I always fall again
Rubies, furs, lies, goodbyes they’ve all left some scars
Whoa Lord have a little bit of pity on my poor old heart

Well I ought to know by now after of these dead and heartache lessons
I can go without going through hell trying to find a little heaven
seems to me every woman I meet has leaving down to an art
Oh Lord have a little bit of pity on my poor old heart

I wonder just how many times a broken heart can mend
Oh when I get back on my feet Lord I always fall again
Rubies, furs, lies, goodbyes they’ve all left some scars
Whoa Lord have a little bit of pity on my poor old heart

Well I said rubies, furs, lies, goodbyes they’ve all left some scars
Whoa, Lord have a little bit of pity on my poor old heart
I said Lord have a little bit of pity on my poor old heart
