George Jones & Gene Pitney
(Written by Eddie Dean, Lorene Dean, and Hal Blair)

(One has my heart, the other has my name)

One has my name, the other has my heart
With one I'll remain, that's how my heartaches start
One has brown eyes, the other's eyes are blue
To one I am tied, to the other I am true.

One has my love, the other's only me
But what good is love to a heart that can't be free?
So I'll go on livin' my life just the same
Still one has my heart, the other has my name.

--- Instrumental as they hum ---

(So I'll go on livin' my life just the same)
(Still one has my heart, the other has my name)

If I could live over, my life I would change
The one who has my heart would also have my name...
