For Love Lyrics

Strapped my guns and courage on; set my cattle free
Rolled a smoke and I made a vow no more to be reviled
Combed her hair and laid her out; pretty as you please
Watched the fire light up the night; cryin' like a child

Saw a man in San Antone shoot down a dancing queen
And asked him on his hangin' day "What was he thinkin' of?"
He said "I never liked the way she treated me so mean
In the end I tell you friend I did it all for love"

Stood out on the ragged edge and there I took the fall
I did it all for love my friend, for love I did it all

Just this side of Devil's Dream, above the sulphur mine
I found the man who robbed me of the girl I loved and lost
I asked him before he died "What made him cross the line?"
He asked me "Did I mean the line I just stepped across?"

Stood out on the ragged edge and there I took the fall
I did it all for love my friend, for love I did it all

I-I-I-I
Wonder why-y

I've walked this earth these many years and left a trail of fire
But once I was a gentle man every bit like you
I watched the heavens open up, heard the angel choir
Sing the holy song of God, 'To thine own self be true'

Stood out on the ragged edge and there I took the fall
I did it all for love my friend, for love I did it all
I did it all for love my friend, for love I did it all
