"Blame It On Your Heart" is a song written by Harlan Howard and Kostas, and recorded by American country music artist Patty Loveless. It was released in April 1993 as the first single from her album Only What I Feel. A cover version by Deborah Allen was featured prominently in the 1993 film The Thing Called Love.

David Keith played the ex-boyfriend in the video.

The song and its video describes an ex-boyfriend who has "a lying, cheating, cold dead-beating, two-timing, double-dealing, mean-mistreating, loving" heart that he should blame for whatever backstabbing he gets from any other woman he does to what he did to its narrator.
