The Marshall Tucker Band Heard it in a Love Song

Album: Carolina Dreams
Year: 1977
Label: Capricorn


I ain't never been with a woman long enough
For my boots to get old
We've been together so long now
They both need resoled

If I ever settle down
You'd be my kind
And it's a good time for me
To head on down the line

Heard it in a love song (3x)
Can't be wrong

I'm the kinda man likes to get away
Like to start dreaming about
Tomorrow, today
Never said that I love you
even though its so
Where's that duffle bag of mine?
It's time to go

Heard it in a love song (3x)
Can't be wrong

I'm gonna be leaving
At the break of dawn
Wish you could come
But I don't need no woman taggin along
I'll sneak out that door
Couldn't stand to see you cry
I stay another year if i saw teardrops in your eyes

Heard it in a love song (3x)
Can't be wrong

I never had a damn thing, but what I had
I had to leave it behind
You're the hardest thing
I ever tried to get off of my mind
Always something greener on the other side of that hill
I was born wrangler and a rounder
and I guess I always will

Heard it in a love song (3x)
Can't be wrong

For the longest time, my ex thought they were singing “pretty little love
song”. LOL

daniel occoner says:

Laying under the pine trees in N.Carolina looking up at the peaks of sun
threw the leaves with my beautiful lady. We had some great times together,
then one day it just ended. I still don’t know what went wrong.

Dem0D1ck says:

What’s so scary about women that men have to run from those they fall in
love with? She’s not a burden, she’s a blessing.

A thought from a guy who’s walked away one to many times and wishes he

Ernie Cadell says:

Good time southern R&R! They were great in concert too! * They were 1 of
the more frequent songs on the jukebox at our local bar “Carafes.” Their
music was 1 of many good un’s that went well w/ some foosball, & draft beer

Carter Kennedy says:

This is one of the saddest songs ever. Every time I hear it I feel more
pity for the narrator, who has a girlfriend who wants him, and with whom he
is in love, but he won’t admit that he is in love and that he needs her.

Anthony Estrada says:

Heck I’m Mexican and I even like this song!

Virginia Estrada says:

Frank Stevens says:

I am lucky enough to have this under my bed , along with sooo many great
albums from the 70’s , and I never get tired of good music, I am glad I
didn’t throw them out !!

gootchie says:

Used to think this was called Dirty Little Love Song…

David Beale says:

Always wondered what “love song” he was talking about…

Paul says:

The “Love Song” he’s refering to is figurative.

ChihuahuaboyDH says:

253 people hate classic southern rock, & possess no taste in music @ all! A
gem from 1977!

Bravo, Marshall Tucker Band!

Farinadog13 says:

My Fifteen year-old Son and I saw the current version of Marshall Tucker
Band in Elgin, IL northwest of Chicago this summer. Got to meet Doug Gray
who wrote and sang lead on this song and I mentioned to him that I thought
this was one of the finest crafted songs with so many wonderful layers.
He said thank you and agreed with me. Rest In Peace, Toy and Tommy Caldwell
and George McKorkle !

Chad Hastings says:

Fantastic tune…memories of a simpler time=)

Teresa McNeill says:

I love this era of music, that 70 Show. What we thought was roughneck
music back then is more country/folk than what they are selling as country
today. I loved the bands of the 70s: CSNY, Three Dog Night, Jackson
Browne, Heart, Peter Paul and Mary, The Beetles, The Commodores, Pete
Seeger, Creedance Clearwater. just to name a few.

Stingray8854 says:

I’m 44 years old, and without fail, EVERY time I listen to this song, it
brings back pleasant, carefree childhood memories of the mid 1970s. I loved
this song even as a little kid and still do all these years later. I think
most people have some certain song, or several songs that just puts them in
a good mood and brings out a smile. This is definitely one of mine. 

Tony King says:

Man what a great driving song.
Rolling down the road with your arm around your babe.
