ALL IN THE NAME OF LOVE Willie Nelson Big Jim Butcher was the king of the hill He ran his business with a deadly will His foreman, John, had a pretty wife The way she looked cut Jim like a knife John was weak and his wife was, too Her name was Kate, and she fell in, too She let Big Jim do what he had to do And John stood by and his life was thru (Chorus:) It was all in the name of love All in the name of love You can't change the stars above All in the name of love John took a bottle one drink at a time Stared off in space as he lost his mind Knew who it was on the telephone He saw it all and he felt so alone One dark morning, John stood up like a man He took his shotgun with a steady hand He went to the motel - broke the door in He left two holes where two hearts had been (repeat chorus) He called the preacher and he called the law And when they got there it was pretty raw He said "Boys, you better come and take me away I've done all I can do in the name of love today" (repeat chorus 3 times)
