Old 97s

Old 97s - If My Heart Was A Car

rate me

I remember the Alamo, I don't recall who won

They had swords, they had horses, I hear we had mighty guns

Like the ones from Navarone last night on Channel 21

It's a long way back to El Paso.

It was early Monday morning in the Central Standard Zone

You were quiet like the TV, hung up like the telephone

You were sleeping next to me, I might as well have been

alone

It's a long way back to El Paso.

CHORUS

And if my heart was a car, you would have stripped it a

long time ago.

And if my heart was a car, you would have stripped it a

long time ago.

And if my heart was a car

You would have stripped it down and sold it off

To the greasy man in the salvage lot

As it is it's just a heart

No, no, it ain't worth nothin'.

I ain't talkin' bout tomorrow, I'm talkin' 'bout tonight

You told me you were drunk already, that don't make it

right

You want at me, well, have at it, 'cause I'm in the mood to

fight

And it's a long way back to El Paso.

And if my heart was a car, you would have stripped it a

long time ago.

And if my heart was a car, you would have stripped it a

long time ago.

And if my heart was a car, you would have stripped it a

long time ago.

And if my heart was a,

And if my heart was a,

And if my heart was a car,

(Repeat Chorus)
