If it hadn’t been for love

by Chris Stapleton

1)
Never woulda hitch hiked to Birmingham
If it hadn't been for love
Never woulda caught the train to Louisianne
If it hadn't been for love
Never woulda run through the blindin‘ rain
Without one dollar to my name
If it hadn't been, if it hadn't been for love.

2)
Never woulda seen the trouble that I'm in
If it hadn't been for love
Woulda been gone like a wayward wind
If it hadn't been for love
Nobody knows it better than me
I wouldn't be wishing I was free
If it hadn't been, if it hadn't been for love.

Chorus:
Four cold walls against my will,
At least I know she's lying still
Four cold walls without parole
Lord have mercy on my soul.

3)
Never woulda gone to that side of town
If it hadn't been for love
Never woulda took a mind to track her down
If it hadn't been for love
Never woulda loaded up a 44
Put myself behind a jailhouse door
If it hadn't been, if it hadn't been for love

Chorus

Verse 1, 1 – 4
Verse 3, 5 – 6

If it hadn't been, if it hadn't been for love. (3x)
