For anyone who knows me personally, it should be OBVIOUS that the title of this song refers to the gentleman of my affections at the time, not myself...

Heart Like A Country Song (Always) 

by Candice Ann Moraga

 

He’s got fire on his tongue, the sun in his eye

Silver-tipped pen, my serenadin’ guy

He feels so much – tries to hide it all away

His heart – it burns – no matter what he may say

Can he cast away his demons… to afar?

Will I see the sparkling eye – the one with the star?

He sings to me of a ball & chain

His charm… making my love remain

He sings to me of woe & pain

We ALWAYS make each other insane

He manages to make me giggle & purr

Whenever I stroke his fuzzy fur

I, too, have a patch he likes to caress

Which can only be felt… when I slip off my dress

He smokes his cigar, flicks the ash

Makes you fall, singin’ tunes by Cash

He can’t seem to help it… when he does wrong

‘Cause his heart is like a country song

Regardless of any label

And even though his shit ain’t stable

He strung his heart to mine with cable

Whether or not I’m willing & able
