Marshall Tucker Band – Heard It In A Love Song lyrics
[Verse 1]
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 re-soled
If I ever settle down
You'd be my kind
And it's a good time for me
To head on down the line

[Chorus]
Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Can't be wrong

[Verse 2]
I'm the kind of man who likes to get away
Like to start dreaming about
Tomorrow today
Never said that I love you
Even though it's so
Where's that duffle bag of mine
It's time to go

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
I'm gonna be leavin'
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'd stay another year if
I saw a teardrop in your eye

[Chorus]

[Verse 4]
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 my mind
Always something greener
On the other side of that hill
I was born a wrangler and a rounder
And I guess I always will

[Chorus]

    I'm sorry if the meaning you get from this is about a drug abuser, because this song can mean so much more if your minds open, you only percieve what you allow your self to, to me its about the battle that men have faced since the were mobile, the thrill of adventure and the open road is too much to just give up, if this woman gave him an ultimatum, good for him for leaving, if he is a user he is high on life.

    Just a man who feels his time has come to go. Him & his boots need to be "resoled" because he feels as though he's trapped. Though he cares about her he is always looking for another, "greener on the other side of the hill" so rather than cheat on her he leaves at night, cause he knows he couldn't leave her crying. He heard in a love song that it's better to leave than to cheat, so it can't be wrong.

    This is about a young man who is deeply in love with a woman. But the timing is not right. Something deep, a restlessness deep in his soul, is calling him to go. He HAS to go. It's not that he wants to go. He HAS to go. If he doesn't go, he can never be the man he needs to be in order to love her the way she needs to be loved. He needs to go and find out who he is. It doesn't mean he loves her less: "If I ever settle down, you'd be my kind, but it's a good time for me to head on down the line." Maybe some day he can come back to her. But the time is not right now. He needs to find out who he is, which sadly, many men have not taken the time (or the risk) to do.

    You folks need to pay attention to the chorus "heard it in a love song" - therein lies the meaning of this good ole man's tune. The one you care about too much to leave is the one that breaks you. This song reflects the sentiments of 99% of men. But the chorus?> 70's era?> he knows that leaving isn't right, but since he heard it in a love song, it can't be wrong. Get it? There is more to this song than just lovem and leavem. Its societal/social criticism.

    Same as already posted: just a typical man who wants to be riding his harley on an open road. Falls in love with a beautiful woman, but doesn't want her to get too close because he's scared to hurt her. So he loves the woman enough to leave her before that happens.
    Wish my 30+ year lost love felt the way another (unregistered) poster felt, wish it was my lost love posting it:.
    >>it's the way I felt about this gal I went with back in the 90's; I went and did it: I went!

    The part that gets me is "I was born a wranger and a rounder and I guess I always will". Always will what? Be a wrangler and a rounder? Always be born? Is this a born again song? Or just bad grammar? Probably would have slipped right by me if I hadn't heard the song so many times over the years.
