Don McLean - Left For Dead On The Road Of Love Lyrics




Well I've been left for dead on the road of love
I was doin' high speed with a load of love
Forgot the first creed in the code of love
All's fair in love and war

Well I'm an honest man and I try to be true
I did unto her like I'll do unto you
Now you prefer to tell me we're through
I'm bleedin' through my shirt and tie
I'm bleedin' and I'll tell you why

Well I've been left for dead on the road of love
I was doin' high speed with a load of love
Forgot the first creed in the code of love
All's fair in love and war

Well now who is the guy and when did he come?
When did he start to go beatin' your drum?
Well he's hittin' on you. I'm feelin' numb
And she don't believe a word I told her
I'm cryin' on a gravel shoulder

Well I've been left for dead on the road of love
I was doin' high speed with a load of love
Forgot the first creed in the code of love
All's fair in love and war

Watch what you're doin'
Look where you're goin'
Give me a signal
Some way of knowin'
Well now who's at the wheel in the life that drove by
I could swear it was her made me shift into high
She's got those dangerous curves
And they're wrackin' my nerves
She always wiggles and swerves
She's gonna give her driver everything he deserves

Well now who could want this to lie here alone
With a palate of bricks, a pillow of stone
Well to think that one kiss pulled me out o' my zone
And I wonder what's the change inside her?
This road has got a long divider

Well I've been left for dead on the road of love
I was doin' high speed with a load of love
Forgot the first creed in the code of love
All's fair in love and war

All's fair in love and war
All's fair in love and war

    OMG! I have been looking for this song since I was a kid. My mom used to play this album over and over!

    Sounds like an intelligent mom.

    Can’t believe this has only received 17 views since your upload, considering it’s such a great song. I have this on a vinyl LP from years ago. Just prior to this being released Don toured Oz and one afternoon just before departing for the States gave an impromptu concert as a ‘thank you’ for the support he’d received here, and pretty sure he premiered this song that afternoon in Hyde Park, Sydney. Thanks for uploading this, because if you hadn’t have I would’ve sooner or later. Thanks again. :)
