Hank Williams Jr. Queen Of My Heart Lyrics

I just wanted to tell you what I think about you
And I don’t wanna leave out some important part
You know I love you and I can’t live without you
You know that you are the queen of my heart

I’ve had ladies of passion and women of beauty
But you’re the only girl I’ve opened up to
But I closed up tight when you left for another
And that’s the part I’ve never gotten used to

And the Queen’s still in England, the King’s still in Spain
My love for you is still the same
You know that I want you till death do us part – – –
You know that you are the queen of my heart

If you get this letter, please let me know somethin’ :
If you’re comin’ back, or is it all through?
Hey, just tell me yes or no, don’t keep me hangin’
’cause that’s the part I could never get used to

And the Queen is in England, and the King is in Spain
And all the King’s horses and all the Queen’s men
Could never do one thing to keep us apart – – –
If you’ll just come back to me, queen of my heart
I’m tellin’ you, you are the queen of my heart
