Kacey Musgraves Adds ‘Game of Thrones’ Theme to New Version of ‘Mama’s Broken Heart’

Lorie Liebig

“Mama’s Broken Heart” has a new sound, thanks to a little inspiration from George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones.

You might know the track as a tune from Miranda Lambert’s album Four the Record. In 2013, the song, co-written by Musgraves, became one of her biggest hits. To this day, Musgraves still regularly performs her own rendition of the track at her live shows.

Now that she’s gearing up for a new tour, Kacey decided to put a bit of a different spin on the tune. In a new Instagram video, Musgraves gave fans a sneak peek into her band practice. And yes, that cello break is the iconic riff from the theme of HBO’s Game of Thrones.

Appropriately captioned with “Rehearsed in King’s Landing tonight…” (aka the capital of the Seven Kingdoms in the series), this mashup is enough to help GOT fans get through another long hiatus before the show’s final season.

“Mama’s Broken Heart” Lyrics

I cut my bangs with some rusty kitchen scissors,

I screamed his name til the neighbors called the cops

I numbed the pain at the expense of my liver

Don’t know what I did next all I know, I couldn’t stop

Word got around to the barflies and the baptists

My mama’s phone started ringin’ off the hook

I can hear her now sayin’ she ain’t gonna have it

Don’t matter how you feel, it only matters how you look

Go and fix your make up girl it’s, just a break up run an’

Hide your crazy and start actin’ like a lady ’cause I

Raised you better, gotta keep it together even when you fall apart,

But this ain’t my mama’s broken heart

I wish I could be just a little less dramatic like a,

Kennedy when Camelot went down in flames

Leave it to me to be holdin’ the matches

When the fire trucks show up and there’s nobody else to blame

Can’t get revenge and keep a spotless reputation

Sometimes revenge is a choice you gotta make

My mama came from a softer generation

Where you get a grip and bite your lip just to save a little face

Go and fix your make up girl it’s, just a break up run an’

Hide your crazy and start actin’ like a lady ’cause I

Raised you better, gotta keep it together even when you fall apart,

But this ain’t my mama’s broken heart

Powder your nose, paint your toes line your lips and keep ’em closed

Cross your legs, dot your I’s and never let ’em see you cry

Go and fix your make up well it’s, just a break up run an’

Hide your crazy and start actin’ like a lady ’cause I

Raised you better, gotta keep it together even when you fall apart,

But this ain’t my mama’s broken heart
