Heartache Central Time

"Heartache Central Time" MAY be an Amy Ray song. I don't actually
know much of anything about it, except that the sole version I have
is a studio version, featuring organ, piano, bass, and drums, in
addition to A&E. I don't know when it was recorded, but I'm guessing
- only guessing, mind you - that it MAY have been an out-take from
the EP sessions. Or, possibly, from a live-in-the-studio radio
broadcast, such as WRFG's "What the Folk," or WREK's "Live at WREK."
It's a silly kind of country-and-western style song that makes
pinning a stylistic date down difficult, but Amy's lead vocal
suggests (to me, anyway) that it may be from around 1985-6.
Heartache Central Time
Thought you were one who wouldn't run
Who wouldn't do me wrong
But the song that you were singing
Was the same old heartache song
You treat me fine and you wined and dined
And I believed you when you said
"I love you, babe," but your only aim
Was to get me in your bed
Now I don't even like you no more
But I can't get you off of my mind
Baby, you've got me livin' in Heartache Central Time
(Heartache Central, Heartache Central, Heartache Central Time)
Anytime is a hurting time
With a hurting heart like mine
God knows I'd get over you if only I could find
A way to get my hurtin' heart
off Heartache Central Time
Remember last September
When you looked into my eyes
I should have known that the love you'd shown
Was nothing more than lies
I fell for you and I know it's true
That I should have stopped myself
But my lonely heart was too alone
To hurt all by itself
Now I don't even like you no more
But I can't get you off of my mind
Baby, you've got me livin' in Heartache Central Time
(Heartache Central, Heartache Central, Heartache Central Time)
Anytime is a hurting time
With a hurting heart like mine
God knows I'd get over you if only I could find
A way to get my hurtin' heart
off Heartache Central Time.
