'Blame It On Your Heart' was also recorded by Heidi Raye and released on Harlan Howard Records.
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.
