You Can't Conceal A Broken Heart

Cat. #0632 (MFH #734) - As sung by Paralee Weddington, Busch, Arkansas on March 7, 1968

VERSE 1
You can't conceal a heart thats broken
No matter what you do or say
I still recall words that were spoken
Th night you said you were going away
My darl'n, I still want you near me
You know I've loved you from th start
You may conceal th tear drops faillin'
But you can't conceal a broken heart

VERSE 2
Th long, long th nights I spent alone, dear
I'm lonesome since we've been apart
I tried t' smile th best I could, dear
But you can't conceal a broken heart
You can't conceal a heart that broken
Although you try to hide your blues
I know for me you feel no longing
For in your heart there is no room
