(Steve Clark/Rick Ferrell)

I've never had a broken bone,
I hardly ever get a cold,
I keep myself in pretty good shape,
But I know I wouldn't be here today,

If a broken heart could kill,
I'd be long gone,
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust by now,
Six feet under, a tombstone on a hill,
Lyin' there alone, in my new wooden home,
If a broken heart could kill.

I've run the rapids, jumped from a plane,
Been through earthquakes, and hurricanes,
I've climbed mountains, been a rodeo clown,
But after you I'm lucky I'm still around,

If a broken heart could kill,
I'd be long gone,
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust by now,
Six feet under, a tombstone on a hill,
Lyin' there alone, in my new wooden home,
If a broken heart could kill.

Yeah, I'd be heaven bound,
Or on my way down,
If a broken heart could kill.
