Crazy Heart Theme Song

Oscar fever alert

Boy, this film has got to have a lot of songs in it—case in point, Crazy Heart: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. However, the song known as the “Theme from Crazy Heart” raised the film to new levels of appreciation.

“The Weary Kind” (full title “The Weary Kind (Theme from Crazy Heart)”) won the Academy Award for Best Original Song at the 82nd (2010) Academy Awards. In the film, you get renditions of the song by Jeff Bridges and Colin Farrell. In real life, and in the soundtrack, it was performed (and partly composed) by Ryan Bingham, a former rodeo bull rider turned singer/songwriter. “The Weary Kind” is credited to (composers) T-Bone Burnett and Ryan Bingham.

Crazy Heart theme song lyrics

Your heart’s on the loose
You rolled them seven’s with nothing lose
And this ain’t no place for the weary kind

You called all your shots
Shooting 8 ball at the corner truck stop
Somehow this don’t feel like home anymore

And this ain’t no place for the weary kind
And this ain’t no place to lose your mind
And this ain’t no place to fall behind
Pick up your crazy heart and give it one more try

Your body aches
Playing your guitar and sweating out the hate
The days and the nights all feel the same

Whiskey has been a thorn in your side
and it doesn’t forget
the highway that calls for your heart inside

And this ain’t no place for the weary kind
And this ain’t no place to lose your mind
And this ain’t no place to fall behind
Pick up your crazy heart and give it one more try

Your lovers won’t kiss
It’s too damn far from your fingertips
You are the man that ruined her world

Your heart’s on the loose
You rolled them seven’s with nothing lose
And this ain’t no place for the weary kind

Watch & Listen to Ryan Bingham perform “The Weary Kind”
