Old 97's – If My Heart Was A Car lyrics

I remember the Alamo, I don't recall who won
They had swords, they had horses, I hear we had mighty guns
Like the ones from Navarone last night on Channel 21
It's a long way back to El Paso.

It was early Monday morning in the Central Standard Zone
You were quiet like the tv, hung up like the telephone
You were sleeping next to me, I might as well have been
Alone
It's a long way back to El Paso.

Chorus
And if my heart was a car, you would have stripped it a
Long time ago.
And if my heart was a car, you would have stripped it a
Long time ago.
And if my heart was a car

You would have stripped it down and sold it off
To the greasy man in the salvage lot
As it is it's just a heart
No, no, it ain't worth nothin'.

I ain't talkin' bout tomorrow, I'm talkin' 'bout tonight
You told me you were drunk already, that don't make it
Right
You want at me, well, have at it, 'cause I'm in the mood to
Fight
And it's a long way back to El Paso.

And if my heart was a car, you would have stripped it a
Long time ago.
And if my heart was a car, you would have stripped it a
Long time ago.

And if my heart was a car, you would have stripped it a
Long time ago.
And if my heart was a,
And if my heart was a,
And if my heart was a car,

(Repeat Chorus)
