If Heartaches Were Horses

  • Been in the saddle
    Since the sun came up
    Roundin' up stray's in
    This ole west Texas dust
    She's been packin' her things
    Since I put coffee on
    By sundown she'll be gone

    Damn this ole girth
    Worn right in two
    But a spare length of leather
    And I'll make it do
    Just when I think I've got
    Life by the reins
    Home ain't sweet home
    On the range

    [Chorus]
    If heartaches were horses
    And hard times were cattle
    I'd ride home at sunset
    Sittin' tall in the saddle
    If heartaches were horses
    And hard times were cattle

    And she'd say she loved me
    And this cowboy way of life
    She'd be right beside me
    When we rode home tonight

    [Chorus] Writer/s: WILLIAM BROCK, DEAN DILLON, WILL NANCE
