The Heart That You Own
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


I pay rent on a run-down place
There ain't no view but there's lots of space
In my heart
The heart that you own
I pay the rent
Pay it right on time
Baby I pay you every single dime
For my heart
The heart that you own
Used to be I could love here for free
Way back before you bought the property
Now I pay daily on what once was mine
Lord I probably owe you
For the tears that I cry

'Cause I pay rent on a run-down place
There ain't no view but there's lots of space
In my heart
The heart that you own

I struggle each night to find a new way
To pay what I owe
Just so I can stay
I ain't overdue
So you can't throw me out
I've loved here for years
Don't know where I'd go now

'Cause I pay rent on a run-down place
There ain't no view but there's lots of space
In my heart
The heart that you own
In my heart, the heart that you own

Damn it, this is what real COUNTRY MUSIC sounds like too me and always will, no matter what Nashville tries to pass off as country music!!!

Nico, I have been listening to Dwight for just about 26 years. I love all of his music, but If There Was A Way Is easily my favorite album of his to date! I love your comment, it is perfect!!! I couldn't improve on what you said if I tried, so I won't even bother! Well put mister, hats off to you for speaking the gospel truth! Cheers!

I cannot stand at least 98% of today's " country" music...pathetic....I am a total music freak and love MANY GENRES OF MUSIC. I put today's country almost in the category of rap, I dislike it that much.

Country music is too busy trying to pass off sex for sales. one of the first things I was told and doing a portfolio for a demo CD/ country music: "your pictures must be as sexy as possible, don't want you to be uncomfortable... Just sex sells..." That was 24 years ago - I was late getting started in, well let's just say further going my music... Long story you would have to read my novel & it's in between the lines of my numerous and long comments.
All about sex/good music & true artistic talent. These days are we getting real stuff or "electronic enhanced" singers? Hmmm⁉️

With all the GREATS of country fading away...Jones, Buck, Cash, Waylon, Haggard...Dwight Yoakam is one of the few who can "fill their shoes."
