Leaving Love All Over The Place

This song is by George Jones and appears on the album Bartender'S Blues (1978).

The man who ran the motel said
We couldn't spend the nights there anymore
Said it'd take a week to clean the room
Twenty-three and put new carpet on the floor

Said we harmed his reputation
And what about the shame and disgrace
But we just never learned to love
Without leaving love all over the place

The lady at the rooming house
Served our eviction notice yesterday
While we were picking up our cloths
She started screaming somebody's gonna pay

She said it takes a dozen carpenters
To fix the broken bed and drapes
But we just never learned to love
Without leaving love all over their place

Loving always came to us easy
I know it always will
And we don' need nobody to roll us down
The other side when we're over the hill

The mourners formed a single line
As they filled by to pay their last respects
And they couldn't help but wonder
How two lovers could break each others necks

And they wondered why the undertakers
Couldn't take the smiles from off their face
Then a preacher said
"Dearly beloved, why that sweet couple"

"They just never learned to love
Without leavin' love all over the place"
No, we never learned to love
Without leavin' love all over the place
