Just Another Broken Heart

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Carter Family (Mother Maybelle, Helen, June, and Anita) and Johnny Cash:
They stood on the beach one evening
Out in the moonlight fair
Just a boy in the pride of manhood
And a girl in beauty rare

“I never had thought that you loved me”
An innocent look of surprise
Crept out from beneath her lashes
And into those deep brown eyes

“Oh sir, I was only a flirting
Only playing a part”
Just another boy's life ruined
Just another broken heart

“Sir, I'm to be married this winter”
“Farewell” and she gave me her hand
Then drawing a robe around her
She left him alone on the sand

He goes with a crowd of passers
Always bitter and cold
Just another boy’s life ruined
Just another boy grown old

“Oh sir, I was only a flirting
Only playing a part”
Just another boy's life ruined
Just another broken heart
