Her Ex-Boyfriend’s Band

Music and Lyrics by Jim Love

She was walking down the street in Lindsay,
When something caught her eye
A name on the sign, a name that she knew,
But babe it’s been a long, long time
And why she bought a ticket for the show that night,
She really didn’t understand
She just knew that she’d be there to see – her ex-boyfriend’s band.

And if she wondered why he hadn’t called her,
To say he’d come to town,
To be true, she really knew,
How the deal went down.
You see they hadn’t parted as the best of friends,
But they did the best you can
Now the tears are gone, but the show goes on for her – ex-boyfriend’s band

They played some soul, some rock and roll and a little bit of blues
They played some songs she’d heard before and some songs that were knew
And sometimes she’d be lost in thought, sometimes she’d sing along
But when the night was over and they hadn’t played that old love song

Yeah the night is over, and it’s time to go
She stood in the back and she wondered if she’d stop to say hello
And maybe then, they’d talk like friends but they’d both understand
She won’t hear that old love song from her ex-boyfriend’s band.

They’ll play some soul, some rock and roll, and a little bit of blues
They’ll play some songs she’s heard before and some songs that were new
And sometimes she’ll be lost in thought, sometimes she’ll sing along
But when the night was over, and they hadn’t played that old love song


And maybe then, they’d talk like friends but they’d both understand
She won’t hear that old love song from her ex-boyfriend’s band.

No they don’t play that song no more in her ex-boyfriend’s band

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.
