Blackboard of My Heart
recorded by Hank Thompson
written by Lyle Gaston and Hank Thompson
G D7
When I was young and I went to school they taught me how to write
To take the chalk and make a mark and hope it turns out right
G7 C
Well that's the way it is with love and what you did to me
G D7 G
I wrote it so you'd know that I was yours eternally

But my tears have washed I love you from the blackboard of my heart
It's too late to clean the slate and make another start
G7 C
I'm satisfied the way things are although we're far apart
G D7 G
My tears have washed I love you from the blackboard of my heart

If you'd been true the way you should and not have gone astray
Those tears would not have fallen down and washed the words away
G7 C
No need to talk cause if the chalk should write those words again
G D7 G
It will be for someone else not things that might have been

repeat #2
