"If My Heart Had Windows" is the title of a country song written by Dallas Frazier and recorded by George Jones in 1967 on his album of the same name. Released as a single that year, Jones's version peaked at #7 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles charts.[1]

Twenty-one years after the original version, Patty Loveless recorded a cover of the song on her 1987 album, also entitled If My Heart Had Windows. Loveless's version was also a Top Ten country hit — the first of her career — peaking at #10 on the country music charts.[2] It was also the song she sang the night she was inducted into the membership of the Grand Ole Opry.
