Chesnutt, Mark - Heard It In A Love Song Lyrics

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 resoled
If I ever settle down you'd be my kind
And it's a good time for me to head on down the line

Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Can't be wrong

I'm the kinda man likes to get away
Like to start dreamin about tomorrow today
Never said that I love you, even thought it's so
Where's that duffle bag of mine it's time to go

I'm gonna be leaving at the break of dawn
Wish you could come but I don't need no woman tagging along
So I'll sneak out that door couldn't stand to see you cry
I'd stay another year if I saw a tear drop in your eye

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 rambler and I guess I always will

Chesnutt, Mark Heard It In A Love Song Comments
  1. Edward Vargas

    You're one of the best brother....

  2. Elvis Bird

    Takes one back to the 70`s

  3. James Smith

    The production sounds like Danny Davis & The Nashville Brass circa 1972--too slick and lifeless. The musicians sound bored to depression and their performance is horribly edgeless. Chesnutt has the voice to make his version really, really, great...REALLY. But those studio musicians and the record's producer kill all signs of life. It was dead before it got to the 3rd chord, and that's the truth. Compare with the original

  4. Pennyroyal Tea

    He definitely nailed it, sounds damn good

  5. Becky Brown

    Mark is one of my favorites. He does a fantastic job on this song.

  6. Double Dawg

    Big fan of MC and Marshall Tucker. Lovin’ This!

  7. Johnny Wynes

    I don’t do well with singers doing remakes... but he nailed it. Perfect country music. New country music needs to take note

  8. Eric Fergeson

    Beautiful rearrangement of a great song.....with a little Cosby,Stills,Nash and Young.....

  9. Anthony Drazenovich

    Paul Van Gorp

    Mark chesnutt play all the fun I have waiting for me is waiting for me at home

  15. Greg Akinson

    Ya know, some songs are just better left alone. Everything was pretty good in this remake for the most part but one GLARING detail! When you omit THE FLUTE you degrade the song to such a point that it is nothing short of shameful. I used to like Mark Chestnut but I will pass on all of your stuff now. What a pathetic version compared to the original.....and because you couldn't find a flute player? WOW! Go for the REAL deal folks, this is like 4th rate compared to Marshall Tucker!


    I hear you Greg, but I’m way too distracted by the totally awesome bass line in this song!

    neal nash

    Maybe they could have got you to play SKIN FLUTE or maybe the MEAT WHISTLE!


    structualfitter What does that mean?


    Apparently Greg has not heard Doug Gray's singing recently. He should have hung it up many years ago, his voice is just shot unfortunately. Be thankful artists such as Mark are willing to pick up the torch. MTB is still touring, go find a recent video and see for yourself. It is really sad, I'm embarrassed for the rest of the band. In the meantime I'll forgive Mark for a slightly different arrangement, I'm just happy he is doing it. I can listen to Mark anytime.


    Right, because all great country songs feature a flute solo, like the original of this, and... uh...
    Some of us realize that this is not supposed to be an imitation of MTB, but instead it is Chesnutt's version, which takes a little more talent and skill than pretending to be someone else.

  16. Rickarama Trama

    Sooo glad Mark picked this ole' Marshall Tucker hit cause he really nails it and makes it his own and I love the true country he puts into it~!!

  17. kacenoroyal

    Such a great rendition of an awesome song. Mark Chestnutt you've done this song justice, PROPS!

  18. Terri Cally

    My favorite version.

    Jennifer Dijames

    GO Mark .

  19. vaughn motsinger

    Not bad , but can't touch the original.

    Milton Moore

    And what might
    that be?

    Dale Wiley

    Why should it ? Done Chesnutt style.

    Jan Phillips

    Marshall Tucker Band did it better! But, whatever floats your boat! 😀

    Yvonne Vincens

    I like both

  20. Tim Fountain

    Love how he makes this song so perfectly country!

    Huawei is a criminal organization.

    Tim Fountain to be fair, this song was country waaaay before Mr. Chesnutt got a hold of it. What is now "modern country" was country rock of the 70's ... Marshall Tucker Band, Pure Prairie League, Eagles, Steve Earle, The Outlaws, Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Linda Ronstadt, these people would chart on the C&W charts today. They have already been there, country just came to meet them.

    Mark does a great job here.

    Rickarama Trama

    It's his steel guitar player that does this!!

    Pennyroyal Tea

    Huawei is a criminal organization. The eagles are not country


    Really impressive if you ask me.. Sounds traditional country and he made it his own. Mark is a has a very very good artist..

  21. Joseph Gregory

    Sweet Mark!!!

  22. Fred Justice

    Great !!!

  23. venus ross

    Absolutely Love This!!!!!

  24. Stephanie Acaldo

    Mark Chesnutt does this song wonderfully.
