“THIS OLD HEART”
WRITTEN BY GARY BLACK
MESA, ARIZONA

Sometimes I catch my reflection starin’ back at me
Wonderin’ who that old man in the mirror is that I see
It’s not the gray hair and whiskers that look out of place
But the sadness in the eyes and lines in the face

CHORUS
This old heart don’t beat the way it used to
This old heart still aches from missin’ you
And this old heart thinks that it’s still young
This old heart’s full of songs that need to be sung

More and more the things I see bring back memories
Before they made me dream of what could someday be
The things that never change are the ones I wish that would
And what used to make me cry now makes me wish I could

REPEAT CHORUS

To some I’ve been a stranger, to a few I’ve been a friend
There are some things I have done I would not do again
For every honky-tonk adventure bathed in neon lights
There have been nights in the desert under stars so bright

REPEAT CHORUS
