Kris Kristofferson — The Heart lyrics

My daddy was a charmer boys he had a lot of style
He was the shinin' best at everything he did
They said the he could lighten up a room with just a smile
And I was proud as hell to be his kid
It seemed like just as we were growing closer together
He was gone but it was long enough to shaw what I could be
And I sometimes feel his spirit fill my body like a song
And this is what my daddy sang to me
If they deal you down and dirty in a way you don't deserve
You'll feel better if you take it like a man
If you let 'em drive you crazy boy they'll shut your business down
Shake it off and get your licks in when you can
Cause the heart is all that matters in the end
[ guitar ]
They say every song is sweeter when you sing it from the heart
I won't knock it cause I've tried it and it's true
I may never get to heaven but I've seen a lot of stars
And I'm here to bring the same advice to you
If they deal you down...
Cause the heart is all that matters in the end
The heart is all that matters in the end
