Hank Snow – The Law Of Love lyrics

Album: A Fool Such as I

Written and Recorded by Hank Snow

The Law Of Love has ruled again, dear,
You said goodbye and went your way.
In chains of sorrow you have bound me,
I'm a prisoner of your love today.

You said your mind had reached the verdict,
You've been the judge right from the start.
The sentence that you gave me, darlin',
Was a lap of tears and a broken heart.

I counted ev'ry star up yonder,
I've watched the moon in heaven so bright.
They seem to share the pain you left me,
That lingers in my heart tonight.

Perhaps some day you'll grant a pardon,
Perhaps someday bring back the key,
And open up this lock of love, dear,
And let this weary heart go free.
