Subject: Lyr Req: I'll Take Love Over Lonesome Everytime
From: LilyFestre
Date: 06 Aug 05 - 10:06 AM

I'm not entirely sure of the title but I heard this song last night and really liked the lyrics, anyone know it?

One of the most repeated and strongest line in the song (not always the chorus) is: I'll take love over lonesome everytime.


Thanks!

Michelle

If it's a country song, it might be at Cowpie. In the Mudcat search, there's an optional "Search Cowpie" box.

It didn't sound like country and that really wasn't the genre of the evening, but I'll check it out! Thanks!

Subject: Answering lyrics requests
From: Joe Offer

You know, I really wish people would learn to give real information when answering lyrics requests, instead of just rushing to post a link and beat the clock, or telling people they ought to look at Cowpie or somewhere other than Mudcat. I don't know the song and don't know where to find it, but I do know from the link above that song is called "Love Over Lonesome" on a CD called All This, and Money, Too! by The Country Gazette. Country Gazette do a lot of traditional and classic country songs, so that could be an indication that this song is an old classic - or not. I also know from searching Cowpie that I couldn't find the song there - but I really haven't learned to search Cowpie's search engine to my satisfaction.

But the fact that I searched such-and-such a site and didn't find the song is information, a piece of the puzzle that may help somebody find the song later. The name of the album and performer is also information that may help somebody more than a link that may not work a year from now.

The links are good - please always give them when you post information, so we know where the information come from. But when we're talking music, please also post the pieces of information you find, not just links. it's so frustrating to come across a dead link to stuff that could have been quite valuable - and to find that the poster didn't take the time to post the actual information that was found.

On music threads, we need both the information and the source of the information. An exception would be for current popular music, which is not really of much interest or value to our folk music clientele. If it's a request for popular songs that aren't classics, a link will suffice.

All of this has been stated in the FAQ for years, by the way. A few of our "regulars" constantly give nothing but links and misinformation, and that gives other people the impression that that is our norm. Our "regulars" should know by now that our purpose is to provide actual information, not just to direct people somewhere else. Finding songs can be a very satisfying cooperative effort, if people take the time to post the pieces of information they find.

Thanks Jim..and thanks for your resource as well!

As it so happened, I was at a local bluegrass concert last night at the county fair. The guy who sang the song last Friday sat directly behind me. So I said, "Tom, what is the name of the song you closed with last Friday night? Love over Lonesome?" He said yes, that John Hadley wrote it and Country Gazette sang it. Ok, fine.

This morning, around 9:00am, I got a phone call. According to my caller ID, the caller was none other than John Hadley III. *G*

It's an old Flatt and Scruggs song titled "I'll take love over lonesome".

The chorus goes:

I'll take love over lonesome, I've had it all before,
And I don't care if I am never lonesome anymore
It ain't hard yo choose between the two, and I've made up my mind
I'll take love over lonesome every time.

OK. Been digging for the lyrics and I'm coming up empty. Thing is, Love Over Lonesome is one helluva song title because it is a great play with words. The internet gives nothing useful, EVEN WITH A DEDICATED SEARCH (in quotation marks). So, what gives?

John Hadley also gets writer credit for "Too Old To Die Young" which, when done by the right singer, is a great song.

LOVE OVER LONESOME
As recorded by Country Gazette

I like eggs over easy, gravy over bread,
Staying overnight and feeling overfed.
I like talking over some things and laughing over wine.
I'll take love over lonesome every time.

CHORUS: I'll take love over lonesome; I've had 'em both before,
And I don't care if I'm ever lonesome anymore.
It ain't hard to choose between the two, and I've made up my mind:
I'll take love over lonesome every time.

I like jumping over fences, stepping over lines,
Like working over welfare and double overtime,
Take nickels over pennies and dollars over dimes.
I'll take love over lonesome every time.

I like flying over deserts, sailing over seas.
I like climbing over the mountains with the moon over the trees.
I'll take the top over the bottom, the front over behind.
I'll take love over lonesome every time. CHORUS

I like boots over my feet, hat over my head.
I like overcoats and overalls and mirrors over beds.
Like your hair over my pillow and your lips over mine.
I'll take love over lonesome every time. CHORUS

I'll take love over lonesome,
Love over lonesome,
Love over lonesome every time.
