Johnny Cash ‎– A Thing Called Love lyrics

Six foot six he stood on the ground
He weighed two hundred and thirty-five pounds
But I saw that giant of a man brought down
To his knees by love
He was the kind of man that would gamble on luck
Look you in the eye and never back up
But I saw him crying like a little whipped pup
Because of love
You can’t see it with your eyes, hold it in your hands
But like the wind it covers our land
Strong enough to rule the heart of any man
This thing called love
It can lift you up never let you down
Take your world and turn it around
Ever since time nothing’s ever been found
That’s stronger than love
Most men are like me, they struggle and doubt
They trouble their minds day in and day out
Too busy with livin’ to worry about
A little word like love
But when I see a mother’s tenderness
As she holds her young close to her breast
Then I thank god that the world’s been blessed
With a thing called love
You can’t see it with your eyes, hold it in your hands
But like the wind it covers our land
Strong enough to rule the heart of any man
This thing called love
It can lift you up never let you down
Take your world and turn it around
Ever since time nothing’s ever been found
That’s stronger than love
Ever since time nothing’s ever been found
That’s stronger than love
