Tex Ritter - Jealous Heart Lyrics

 

Jealous heart, oh jealous heart, stop beating

Can't you see the damage you have done?

You have driven her away, forever

Jealous heart, now I'm the lonely one

 

I was part of everything she planned for

And I know she loved me at the start

Now she hates the sight of all I stand for

All because of you, oh jealous heart

 

Jealous heart, why did I let you rule me

When I knew the end would bring me pain

Now she's gone, she's gone and found another

Oh, I'll never see my love again

 

Through the years here memory will haunt me

Even though we're many miles apart

It's so hard to know she'll never want me

'Cause she heard your beating jealous heart

 

Many times I trusted you to guide me

But your guiding only brought me tears

Why, oh why, must I have you inside me

Jealous heart for all my lonely years
