​Blackboard Of My Heart

This song is by Leon Payne and appears on the compilation Hillbilly Hit Parade (1958).

Original video
When I was young and went to school
They taught me how to write
To take the chalk and make a mark
And hope it turned out right
Well, that's the way it is with love
And what you did to me
I wrote it so that you'd know that I
Was yours eternally

But these tears have washed 'I love you'
From the blackboard of my heart
It's too late to clean the slate
And make another start
I'm satisfied the way things are
Although we're far apart
These 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
These tears would not have fallen down
And washed the tears away
No need to talk, for if the chalk
Should write those words again
They will be for someone else
Not things that might have been

But these tears have washed 'I love you'
From the blackboard of my heart
It's too late to clean the slate
And make another start
I'm satisfied the way things are
Although we're far apart
These tears have washed 'I love you'
From the blackboard of my heart
