Heard It in a Love Song

Too low to display

After releasing a long series of cookie-cutter Nash-Vegas albums through most of the '90s, Mark Chesnutt took a welcome step back to his honky tonk roots on his fine 2004 album Savin' the Honky Tonk, and while Heard It in a Love Song lacks the hard country feel of that disc, it's a solid set that confirms the man's musical instincts are back on track. Heard It in a Love Song is primarily devoted to covers of tunes associated with the likes of Merle Haggard, Hank Williams, Johnny Paycheck and Waylon Jennings, with Chesnutt focusing on love (both good and bad) most of the time. Chesnutt's sure got a way with a weeper — "A Day in the Life of a Fool" and "Apartment #9" practically demand a beer to cry in — and he brings a warmth and weathered sentimentality to "Dreaming My Dreams with You" and "Goodbye Comes Hard for Me" that's touching without getting saccharine. While the cover of the Marshall Tucker Band's "Heard it in a Love Song" is the slickest thing here, it still gives off an honest barroom ambience, and the rest of this album compares favorably to Chesnutt's great early work. At less than 31 minutes, Heard It in a Love Song's only flaw is its length — with Chesnutt sounding this good, most fans will wish there were another few songs on this set, but what's here is modern-day honky tonk served strong and straight and sounding mighty fine.

HEARD IT IN A LOVE SONG Lyrics - MARSHALL TUCKER BAND

Title: Heard it in a Love Song (track 02)

Artist: Marshall Tucker Band
Album: Carolina Dreams
Year: 1977
Label: Capricorn

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 (3x)
Can't be wrong

I'm the kinda man likes to get away
Like to start dreaming about
Tomorrow, today
Never said that I love you
even though its so
Where's that duffle bag of mine?
It's time to go

Heard it in a love song (3x)
Can't be wrong

I'm gonna be leaving
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 stay another year if i saw teardrops in your eyes

Heard it in a love song (3x)
Can't be wrong

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 of my mind
Always something greener on the other side of that hill
I was born wrangler and a rounder
and I guess I always will

Heard it in a love song (3x)
Can't be wrong
