The Color Of Love

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Johnny Cash: Well, I used to think the color of love would be
A rosy red or a pretty pink
June Carter: And I thought it would be
A thirsty man crawling home to get a big old drink

Johnny: And I thought love was spelled like bell b-e-l double l that you ring
June: Instead of wham bam hit your man in the head with a pan
And hit him on the head and listen to the birdies sing

June: Oh, you heart-breaking, love-making, cut me a piece of bacon man of mine, oh
Johnny: Oh you money-shifting, flour-sifting, nose-lifting rose of womankind

Both:
Just keep on doing what you’re doing
What you’re doing suits me just fine
And love, I’ll tell you something else
You blow my mind

Johnny: Well, I used to think the color of love would be a soft green like a pea in a pod
June: And I thought love would strike like a light flashing down a big, old lightening rod

Johnny: And I thought love was spelled w-e-l double l well that would never run dry
June: Instead of choke, choke I’m so broke and dry I can’t afford a little bit of tear to cry

Johnny: Oh, you money-turning, egg-churning, butter-burning baby of mine
June: You half-lazy, lean and crazy, pretty as a wilted daisy man of mine

Both:
Just keep on doing what you’re doing
What you’re doing suits me just fine
And love, I’ll tell you something else
You blow my mind

You day and night alright
Love me ‘til I’m old and a going blind
And love I’ll tell you something else
You blow my mind
