Big Jim Butcher was the king of the hill he ran his business with a deadly will
His foreman John had a pretty wife the way she looked cut Jim like a knife
John was weak and his wife was too her name was Kate and she fell in too
She let Big Jim do what he had to do and John stood by and his life was through

It was all in the name of love all in the name of love
You can't change the stars above all in the name of love
John took a bottle one drink at a time atared off in space as he lost his mind
Knew who it was on the telephone he saw it all and he felt so alone

One dark morning John stood up like a man he took his shotgun with a steady hand
He went to the motel broke the door in he left two holes where two hearts had been
He called the preacher and he called the law
And when they got there it was pretty raw
He said boys you better come and take me away
I've done all I can do in the name of love today
