heart of a lonely girl lyrics – dierks bentley

heart of a lonely girl

twenty seven days i’ve been out on the road,
i’m a nervous wreck, i gotta get back home.
there’s a young bride waiting for me all alone
lord, how she misses me.

i can see her sittin’ in the kitchen chair
in a cotton dress with her long black hair.
but a woman ain’t pretty if a man ain’t there,
that i can’t afford to be.

it’s a shame, it’s a shame
she won’t be the one to blame
oh the hurtinest thing in the whole wide world
is the heart of a lonely girl.

like a red-tail fox to a blue tick hound,
she’s the hottest thing for miles around.
all them other boys in our hometown,
got tricks hid up their sleeves.

now it ain’t her that i don’t trust,
she’s pretty and pure as diamond dust.
but lonesome is this lonesome girl
she can’t help for what she needs.

it’s a shame, it’s a shame
she won’t be the one to blame
oh the hurtinest thing in the whole wide world
is the heart of a lonely girl.

the heart of a lonely girl,
the heart of a lonely girl.
it’s the hurtinest thing in the whole wide world
the heart of a lonely girl.

daddy was a rambler just like me,
i guess the apple don’t fall too far from the tree.
when i ask why momma had to go that day,
well he don’t know and she won’t say.

it’s a shame, it’s a shame
she won’t be the one to blame
oh the hurtinest thing in the whole wide world
is the heart of a lonely girl.

yeah, it’s a shame, it’s a shame
she won’t be the one to blame
yeah the hurtinest thing in the whole wide world
is the heart of a lonely girl.
yeah the hurtinest thing in the whole wide world
is the heart of a lonely girl.
