Tex Ritter – Jealous Heart Lyrics

Jealous heart, oh jealous heart, stop beating
Can’t you see the damage you have done?
You have driven her away, forever
Jealous heart, now I’m the lonely one

I was part of everything she planned for
And I know she loved me at the start
Now she hates the sight of all I stand for
All because of you, oh jealous heart

Jealous heart, why did I let you rule me
When I knew the end would bring me pain
Now she’s gone, she’s gone and found another
Oh, I’ll never see my love again

Through the years here memory will haunt me
Even though we’re many miles apart
It’s so hard to know she’ll never want me
‘Cause she heard your beating jealous heart

Many times I trusted you to guide me
But your guiding only brought me tears
Why, oh why, must I have you inside me
Jealous heart for all my lonely years
