That was a Heartache Lyrics

by Pam Tillis

Jimmy was a bareback rider
back in my hometown
cowboys fall hard
the whole town saw
Katie let him down

Saw him just the other day
15 years since I've been gone
Couldn't believe it when I heard him say
I don't think she's comin' home

That was a heartache
no little mistake
a pain down in your bones
too much to take
Time keeps rollin' but you aint movin' on
You and I had a pretty good time
and I'll cry when you're gone
But that was a heartache

20 years old, runnin wild
moved out on my own
Believed every promise that fell from the lips
that said you'll never be alone
the heart was young and tender
how could I realize?
in the middle of the night
I still remember
that last look in his eyes

That was a heartache
no little mistake
a pain down in your bones
too much to take
Time keeps rollin' but you aint movin on
You and I had a pretty good time
and I'll cry when you're gone
But that was a heartache

So it don't mean nothin' if I call you up
and it don't mean this was really love...
Just a heartache
no little mistake
a pain down in your bones
Too much to take
'cause time keeps rollin' but you aint movin on
Oh you and I had a pretty good time
and I'll cry when you're gone
'cause that was a heartache

That was a heartache...
