Mojo Juju And The Snake Oil Merchants – Dear Darlin' lyrics

I'm burning up it's 40 plus in the shade
Hand me a shovel cos I'm digging a grave
I'm going to bury that shell on the door
The door flew the coop and went to heaven above
And when I'm gone I'm gonna write you a letter
Of anything but love

I heard you scratching at the flyscreen door
Those wounds ain't gonna heal if you keep on picking them sores
You blame the symptoms but you know what's the cause
It's anything but love

I walked so far I wore a hole in my boots
I wear this here old vest as though it was bullet proof
You keep on running trying to hide from the truth
It's anything but love


Dear, dear dear dear dear
Dear dear dear dear, dear dear dear dear
Dear darlin'
It's been so long, it's been so long since you wrote
Dear, dear dear dear dear dear dear, dear
Dear darlin'

I mighta left ya, but I left ya a note
It's been so long since you called
I tried to visit but my car don't start
Dear darlin'

You give your heart and then you get the reward
Of anything but, of anything but, of anything but
Love, love, love, love

Of anything but, of anything but,
Of anything but love
