Lesson In The Pain Of Love

This song is by Delbert McClinton and appears on the album Victim Of Life's Circumstances (1975) and on the album Honky Tonk'N Blues (1994).

I never thought I'd ever be one
To get a Dear John letter
It sure can make a body feel untogether
I read it through then I read it once more
Lord, I thought I was dyin'
Dropped the letter to the floor
Caught my head in my hands and I cried
You don't know how I cried

I went to see my doctor
Told my doctor, doctor you got to help me
This hurtin' in my heart's been
'Round since my darlin' left me
He said, son, I can cure your blues
I can give you pills if you want me to
But there really ain't nothin' I can do
For your kind of trouble

My luck ain't been too good
The other day you know a mad dog bit me
I stopped to help a lady on the street
And her husband hit me

Don't nothin' seem to make much sense to me
My whole world's gone crazy
I guess it's just a lesson
Another lesson of the pains of love

My luck ain't been too good
The other day you know a mad dog bit me
I stopped to help a lady on the street
And her husband hit me

Don't nothin' seem to make much sense to me
My whole world's gone crazy
I guess it's just a lesson
Another lesson in the pains of love
I guess it's just a lesson
Another lesson in the pains of love
Well, it must be a lesson
Just a lesson in the pains of love
