About Your Heart Turned Left (And I Was on the Right)

"You're Heart Turned Left (And I Was on the Right)" is a song by George Jones and written by Harlan Howard. It was originally released in 1956 as "Your Heart" on his Grand Ole Opry's New Star album. It was re-released on his 1964 album, Sings More New Favorites, as "You're Heart Turned Left (And I Was on the Right)", and released as a single in January 1964, reaching the number 5 position on the Billboard country singles chart. At this point in his career, Jones had taken his place as one of the premiere balladeers of country music, but he always retained a soft spot for novelty numbers going back to his first recordings for Starday in the mid-fifties. "I've always tried to be versatile," he reflected in the 1989 video biography Same Ole Me. "I've always tried to do up-tempos, novelties, and ballads." The single was Jones' third top ten hit in a row.

[Chorus]
Your heart turned left and I was on the right
You couldn't have hurt me more with dynamite
Thought I was your destiny, but just before you got to me
Your heart turned left and I was on the right.

I almost had the battle won, what could I have said and done
That put you in another's arms tonight?
I don't know where I lost out, I just know without a doubt,
Your heart turned left and I was on the right.

[Chorus]

Now my poor heart just moans and groans,
I walked around just kicking stones
Oh, cupid sure won't get another bite
Honey, why'd you lead me on
Without a warning you were gone.
Your heart turned left and I was on the right.

[Chorus]

Yeah, your heart turned left and I was on the right.

Your heart turned left and I was on the right.
Your heart turned left and I was on the right
