War Paint is an album by American country music artist Lorrie Morgan. The album was released via BNA Records in 1994. It contains the singles "My Night to Howl," "If You Came Back from Heaven," and "Heart Over Mind." Also included are covers of George Jones' "A Good Year for the Roses", recorded here as a duet with Sammy Kershaw, and Jeannie Seely's "Don't Touch Me." The cassette version of the album omits the track "Exit 99."

Thom Owens of Allmusic rated the album two-and-a-half stars out of five, saying that "Morgan still sings beautifully, but her clean contemporary country arrangements are as predictable as her material. The three hit singles[…]hold up really well."[1]
