I never would have hitchhiked to Birmingham
If it hadn't been for love
I never would have caught the train to Louisiana
If it hadn't been for love
Never would have run through the blindin rain without one dollar to my name
If it hadn't been, if it hadn't been for love.
I never would have seen the trouble that I'm in
If it hadn't been for love.
I would have been gone like a wayward wind
If it hadn't been for love
Nobody knows it better than me
I wouldn't be worse then when 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

Never would have gone to that side of town
If it hadn't been for love.
Never would have took a miner tracker down
If it hadn't been for love.
I never would have loaded up a .44, put myself behind a jail house door
If it hadn't been, if it hadn't been for love.
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

I never would have hitchhiked to Birmingham
If it hadn't been for love
I never would have caught the train to Louisiana
If it hadn't been for love
I never would have loaded up a .44, put myself behind a jail house door
If it hadn't been, if it hadn't been for love.
If it hadn't been if it hadn't been for love
If it hadn't been for love
