Merle Haggard – A House Without Love Is Not A Home lyrics

For years we both have lived on pride, dear
And we agree that love is gone
Why, oh, why do we keep trying?
A house without love is not a home

The love light in your eyes has faded
And I'm contented just to roam
We slaved to gain a worthless treasure
A house without love is not a home

No matter where our footsteps wander
I know we'll both be all alone
With the pride that came between us
A house without love is not a home

The simple things have gone forever
We wasted wealth to call our own
Now we've reached the hour of parting
A house without love is not a home
