I've Got All The Heartaches I Can Handle

Ernest Tubb

I just come into this bar

To have a quick one

Maybe give the bowling game a whirl

Well you sat down next to me

And in a minute I could see

That you're a complicated kinda girl

You say there's someone home waitin' for you

But you don't really care much if he cares

If you're prayin' for a chance

Had a really big romance

I don't think I'm the answer to your prayers

Cause I've got all the heartaches

I can handle back at home

I got all the pain and sufferin' I can use

While I thank you for your gracious invitation

I'll call you when I'm runnin' short to blues

[ guitar ]

It's true that you might love me

More than she does

And we might be a whole lot more than friends

But I might start to love you as much as he does

And then you'd be out looking once again

I've been traveling down

Love's rocky road a long time

And I guess that I should know a danger sign

So you stay here try to drown your trouble

And I guess I'll go walking home to mine

Cause I've got all the heartaches...

I'll call you when I'm runnin' out of blues
