Hat and Boots

Music and Lyrics by Jim Love

Put on my hat and boots and ride,
Ride away from these feelings deep down inside
Cause there’s something in this town,
You know it always finds me then it brings me down
Think it over, she said
While I sat there and wished that I was dead
She said, it takes two to make love – but it only takes one to break love…

Put on my hat and boots and ride
Can’t escape these feelings deep down inside
Yeah, there’s something in this town
You know it always finds me then it brings me dow
She said I just need space
While I looked at my hands and felt so out of place
She said, it takes two to make love – “why’s it only takes one to break love…

Put on my hat and boots and ride
Can’t escape these feelings deep down inside
Cause there’s something in our love
You’re in the air I breathe, you’re what I’m thinking of
Maybe it just takes time,
Find some bar where I can drink you off my mind
Cause if it takes two to make love, and it only takes one to break love.
Then I’m not sure just how much this heart can take love…

about

Jim Love Ontario

I wrote my first song when I was about 14 with the line "write me, box nothing, Trans Canada Highway". A few months later, I ran away to Vancouver. The songs never stopped.

In my 20's a Juno nomination and gold album as a writer for a kid's band. A couple of musicals live and on CBC and a series of songs.

After 40 years I'm back with some of my best songs. Never too late.
