Loretta Lynn - The Home You're Tearin' Down Lyrics

 

I don't know your name I wouldn't know your face

But you're right with the one I love out there someplace

You have an invitation be free to come around

Come over anytime and see the home you're tearin' down

Once some happy faces would have met you at the door

But since their daddy's gone so much they don't smile anymore

There's shattered parts of broken hearts just scattered all around

Come over anytime and see the home you're tearin' down

[ steel ]

I'll dry all my tears and have the coffee hot

Cause I can't sleep a wink no more time's all I've got

You see the price I'm payin' for happiness you've found

Come over anytime and see the home you're tearin' down

You've told how much you loved him you can surely tell me too

I'd like to know just what you've done to make him turn to you

I swallow pride and hear you sigh if you'll just come around

Come over anytime and see the home you're tearin' down
