Hi,

I was writing down the words for the song "You wouldn"t know love"by the Nashville Bluegrass Band from their album "Unleashed". Couldn't understand some words. Can anybody help me out! Thanks, Adri, bluegrass lover from Holland.

For what it's worth, I transcribed this much from a sound sample at Barnes & Noble:

YOU WOULDN'T KNOW LOVE
(Mike Dowling, Randy Handley)

...burnin' bright
And you know how to play the part, listening from the heart,
But you turn each word against me like some lover's martial art.
You wouldn't know love if it reached right out and held you.
You wouldn't know love if it cried and walked the floor....

[There seem to be several songs with the same title.]

But these feelings   that I have will   never mean as much to   you.
Verse 2
|    Dm   |             Am             |    Bb    |   Bb    |    F    |   F   |    C7    |   C7   |

       Words aren't    always what they    first appear, now the    illusions clear

   When I look around there is    only smoke and mirrors.

And in English....


YOU WOULDN'T KNOW LOVE

Verse 1
Put my suitcase by the door, like every time before, you say let's try once more
But now I know that love takes two, to see it through
But these feelings   that I have will never mean as much to you.

Verse 2
You know the law about a moon-lit night, candle light, burning bright
and you know how to play the part, listening from the heart
but you turn each word against me like some lover's martial art

Chorus
You wouldn't know love, if it reached right out and held you
You wouldn't know love, if it cried and walked the floor,
You never know how, how hard I tried to please you,
You wouldn't know love, if it walked right out the door.

Verse 3
Pretty words roll off your tongue for me, your poetry flows easily
Words aren't always what they first appear, now the illusions clear
When I look around there is only smoke and mirrors.
Chorus
You wouldn't know love, if it reached right out and held you
You wouldn't know love, if it cried and walked the floor,
You never know how, how hard I tried to please you,
You wouldn't know love, if it walked right out the door.
if it walked right out...the door.

Of course, we don't know if this is the requested song unless we had the Nashville Bluegrass Band recording. I wish the requester had given us more than just a title.

Spotify lists a number of songs with this title and a variety of lyrics. Guess we'll have to leave this on the "Unanswered Requests" list until we can verify it's the right song.

Joe,

It is the correct lyric. I just checked the first stanza against


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K7kEvbBXdzU

so it can be removed from UA Requests.
