It’s Not Love (But It’s Not Bad) Lyrics

Song by Merle Haggard and The Strangers

She was always there each time I needed you
Holding on to me like I held on to you
We still don’t have what you and I once had
No, it’s not love, but it’s not bad

No, it’s not love, not like ours was
It’s not love, but it keeps love from driving me mad
And I don’t have to wonder who she’s had
No, it’s not love, but it’s not bad

I turn to her when you leave me alone
Sometimes even when you’re here, and you’re still gone
She’s slowly changing what you leave so sad
No, it’s not love, but it’s not bad

No, it’s not love, not like ours was
It’s not love but it keeps love from driving me mad
I don’t have to wonder who she’s had
No, it’s not love, but it’s not bad

No, it’s not love, not like ours was
It’s not love but it keeps love from driving me mad
And I don’t have to wonder who she’s had
No, it’s not love, but it’s not bad

Working Man Blues Lyrics

Song by Merle Haggard

It’s a big job gettin’ by with nine kids and a wife
Even I’ve been workin’ man, dang near all my life but I’ll keep workin’
As long as my two hands are fit to use
I’ll drink my beer in a tavern
And sing a little bit of these working man blues

But I keep my nose on the grindstone, I work hard every day
Get tired on the weekend, after I draw my pay
But I’ll go back workin’, come Monday morning I’m right back with the crew
I’ll drink a little beer that evening
Sing a little bit of these working man blues

Sometimes I think about leaving, do a little bummin’ around
Throw my bills out the window, catch me a train to another town
But I go back working, I gotta buy my kids a brand new pair of shoes
I’ll drink a little beer that evening
Cry a little bit of these working man blues, here comes workin’ man

Well, hey, hey, the working man, the working man like me
Never been on welfare, and that’s one place I will not be
Keep me working, you have long two hands are fit to use
My little beer in a tavern
Sing a little bit of these working man blues, this song for the workin’ man

Don’t Worry Lyrics

Song by Marty Robbins

Don’t worry ’bout me, it’s all over now
Though I may be blue, I’ll manage somehow
Love can’t be explained, can’t be controlled
One day it’s warm, next day it’s cold

Don’t pity me ’cause I’m feelin’ blue
Don’t be ashamed, it might have been you
Oh-oh-oh, oh, love
Kiss me one time, then go, love
I understand, don’t worry ’bout me

Sweet, sweet, sweet love, I want you to be
As happy as I when you loved me
I’ll never forget you, your sweet memory
It’s all over now, don’t worry ’bout me

When one heart tells one heart, one heart good-bye
One heart is free, one heart will cry
Oh-oh-oh, oh, sweet, sweet baby, sweet baby, sweet
It’s all right, don’t worry ’bout me
