Patty Loveless – Blame It On Your Heart Lyrics

You’ve got a thing or two to learn about me baby
‘Cause I ain’t taking it no more and I don’t mean maybe
You don’t know right from wrong
Well the love we had is gone
So blame it on your lying, cheating, cold deadbeating,
Two-timing, double dealing
Mean mistreating, loving heart

Well all I wanted was to be your one and only
And all I ever got from you was being lonely
Now that dream is laid to rest
‘Cause you have failed the test
Hey blame it on your lying, cheating, cold deadbeating,
Two-timing, double dealing
Mean mistreating, loving heart

Are you headed for a heartache, oh yeah
Gonna get a bad break, oh yeah
You made a bad mistake, oh yeah
Well, you’re never gonna find another love like mine
Someone’s gonna do you like you done me honey
And when she does you like she’ll do you, it ain’t funny
You need some sympathy
But don’t be calling me
Hey blame it on your lying, cheating, cold deadbeating
Two-timing, double dealing
Mean mistreating, loving heart

Are you headed for a heartache, oh yeah
Gonna get a bad break, oh yeah
You made a bad mistake, oh yeah
Well, you’re never gonna find another love like mine
Someone’s gonna do you like you done me honey
And when she does you like she’ll do you, it ain’t funny
You need some sympathy
But don’t be calling me
Hey blame it on your lying, cheating, cold deadbeating
Two-timing, double dealing
Mean mistreating, loving heart

Hey blame it on your lying, cheating, cold deadbeating, two-timing, double dealing
Mean mistreating, loving heart
