You can tell the world,
You never were my girl.
You can just forget me when I'm gone,
Or you can tell your friends.
Just what a fool I've been,
And laugh and joke on the phone.
You can tell my arms,
Go back to the farm.
You can tell my feet,
To hit the floor.
Or you can tell my lips,
To tell my fingertips.
They won't be reaching out no more

But don't tell my heart,
My achy breaky heart,
I just don't think he'd understand.
And if you tell my heart,
My achy breaky heart,
I might break down and cry today. Ooh...

You can tell my Ma,
I moved to Arkansas.
You can tell your dog,
I'm gone for good.
Or you can tell your brother Cliff,
I've given him the slip.
He never really liked me anyway,
Or you can tell your Aunt Louise,
Tell anyone you please.
Myself already knows I'm not okay,
Or you can tell my eyes.
To watch out for my mind,
It might be walking out on me today.
