If My Heart Had Windows is the second album recorded by country music artist Patty Loveless, and was released in 1988. The title track — a cover of a George Jones song from 1967 — became Loveless' first top ten hit, peaking on the Billboard Country Music charts at #10. It was then followed by her biggest chart position at the time with "A Little Bit In Love," a song written by country artist Steve Earle. It also features a recording of the song "Baby's Gone Blues", which would be recorded in 1992 by Reba McEntire and released on her album It's Your Call.

The album peaked at #33.

This album was released the same year (1988) that Loveless became a Member of the Grand Ole Opry.
