It’s a heaviness this heart of mine
I’m packing it in gonna leave it behind
Keeps giving me trouble, keeps falling in love
I’m tired of crying so I’m giving it up

Gonna climb a mountain, someplace near the top
Gonna throw my heart from the summit, come down without it
I’m gonna be stoney, I’m gonna be cold
I swear I will never care for another living soul

Gonna kill this desire, bury it alive
Who needs a heart, a heart just makes you cry
Just makes you cry

I’m cutting my ties gonna run
I’m catching a train tonight, leave no notes for anyone.
I’ll never be achy, I’ll never be blue
I will spend my days never thinking ‘bout you

Gonna kill this desire, bury it alive
A heart just makes you cry
Gonna kill this desire, still this heart of mine
Who needs a heart, a heart just makes you cry, just makes you cry

'Like Welch and Rawlings these two had the ability, with just two instruments, to keep their audience engaged – entranced is not too strong a word – for the better part of two hours.' Karl du Fresne
