If Heartaches Were Horses
by George Strait



Been in the saddle
Since the sun came up
Roundin' up stray's in
This ole west Texas dust
She's been packin' her things
Since I put coffee on
By sundown she'll be gone

Damn this ole girth
Worn right in two
But a spare length of leather
And I'll make it do
Just when I think I've got
Life by the reins
Home ain't sweet home
On the range

[Chorus]
If heartaches were horses
And hard times were cattle
I'd ride home at sunset
Sittin' tall in the saddle
If heartaches were horses
And hard times were cattle

And she'd say she loved me
And this cowboy way of life
She'd be right beside me
When we rode home tonight

[Chorus]
