​My Heart Won't Wander Very Far From You

This song is by George Strait and appears on the album Ocean Front Property (1987).

Well honey don't you worry
I don't need no barroom queens.
Well I admit she sure knows
How to fill a pair of jeans.
And I'll admit now darling
She sure is showing me her stuff,
But honey it ain't nearly enough.

'Cause I ain't never seen her
Patch a pair of ragged britches,
Stretch a paycheck till it reaches,
Scratch my back right where it itches.
And I ain't never seen that and honey till I do
My heart won't wander very far from you.

Now honey you know I honor
All the hard times we've been through.
I never could've made it
With anyone but you.
And I think I know when
A lady is really really tough,
But she don't show me nearly enough.

'Cause I ain't never seen her
Stay up all night with a baby,
Calm me down when I get crazy,
Fix me grits and red-hot gravy.
I ain't never seen that and honey, till I do
My heart won't wander very far from you.

No I ain't never seen her
Make a six- room house a castle,
Teach the young one how to wrestle,
Straighten out my fishing tackle.
And I ain't never seen that
And honey, till I do
My heart won't wander very far from you.

No, I ain't never seen that
And honey, till I do
My heart won't wander very far from you...
