The Single “Second Hand Heart” – The Story Behind The Song (new Album “Dirt Roads And Fence Lines)

Doug Adkins, traditional Country Music singer and Songwriter is writing his own lyrics.

Next month his Single “Second Hand Heart” of the new Album “Dirt Roads And Fence Lines” will be released.

For this CD, “Dirt Roads And Fence Lines” Doug Akdins wrote all 12 songs in about 2 1/2 weeks, so he had paper everywhere to the point that you wouldn`t know which piece of paper went with which song! But finally it got all sorted out.

For the first single, Second Hand Hearts, Doug Adkins didn’t want to reuse the same old story where guy meets girl in a bar, he convinces her he is the one even though she is hurting and they go off in la la land together. Doug Adkins wanted to give the guy a little more depth! So this particular guy in a bar is a little more attentive, and he actually notices that after their eyes meet, she turns away, and he can tell, that she’s still hurting. But he asks her to dance anyway, she accepts and while they are dancing she states she’s not sure she can ever love again, and the cowboy says, “I don’t need you to fall, I’m just happy here dancin’.”

Doug Adkins:

“I was really happy with that line when it came out because it helps build that depth I was referring to that most of we country boys are accused of not having much of! But also, I felt that would be something a woman who was hurting would like to hear because she certainly doesn’t need any pressure is she’s still hurting. And that’s the line that sets up the chorus and allows our cowboy to say; but, however, if you ever choose to love again, I’d be there if you called, I’d take your second hand heart and just maybe together, we can mend all the broken pieces. Second Hand Heart, Hope you love it , hope it says something to you, as it does to me!”

Today we want to share the lyrics of the new Single that Comes out on February 1st, 2018 – SAVE THE DATE!!!

“Second Hand Heart”… Written by Doug Adkins

Standin’ by the bar, I saw our eyes meet
You quickly turned away (an I knew right then), that you were still hurtin’
I asked you to dance, felt so good together
Movin’ like one, but you’re tellin’ me
That you could never
Let me into your heart, cause you’re still tryin’ to heal
You think you could never love again, that’s the way that you’re feelin’
But I don’t need you to fall, I’m just happy here dancing
But make no mistake, I’d surely be there, if ever you call
I’d take you’re second hand heart, the one that tore your world apart
You say it’s lying in pieces that can never be found
And maybe someday, somewhere, somehow, you choose to love again
And we can mend the broken parts of your second hand heart
Well I’ve been in your shoes
In love it seems we get all used
And there’s nothin’ like knowing that you’ve been the fool
but I swear on my soul, all the stars in the sky
I’ll never break your heart, I ain’t one of those guys
But I’ll take you’re second hand heart, the one that tore your world apart
You say it’s lying in pieces that can never be found
And maybe someday, somewhere, somehow, you’ll choose to love again
And we can mend the broken parts of your second hand heart
Maybe someday, somewhere, somehow, you’ll choose to love again
And we can mend the broken parts of your second hand heart
Together we’ll mend the broken parts of your second hand heart
