Hank Locklin — Cold Cold Heart lyrics

I tried so hard my dear to show that you're my every dream
Yet you're afraid each thing I do is just some evil scheme
A mem'ry from your lonesome past keeps us so far apart
Why can't I free your debtful mind and melt your cold cold heart
Another love before my time made your heart sad and blue
And so my heart is paying now for things I didn't do
In anger unkind words are said that make the teardrops start
Why can't I free your debtful mind and melt your cold cold heart
[ strings ]
The more I learn to care for you the more we drift apart
Why can't I free your debtful mind and melt your cold cold heart
