Marty Robbins - It's Not Love (But It's Not Bad) Lyrics

She was always there each time I needed you
Holding on to me like I held on to you
We still don't have what you and I once had
No, it’s not love, but it's not bad

No, it's not love, not like ours was
It’s not love, but it keeps love from driving me mad
And I don't have to wonder who she's had
No, it's not love, but it's not bad

I turn to her when you leave me alone
Sometimes even when you're here, and you're still gone
She's slowly changing what you leave so sad
No, it’s not love, but it’s not bad

No, it's not love, not like ours was
It’s not love, but it keeps love from driving me mad
And I don't have to wonder who she's had
No, it's not love, but it’s not bad

  1. Ronald Jillings

    love this version , on par with merle haggard....two of my favourite C and W ,.....singers ! x

  2. Irene Mccann

    I love Merle, but Marty's my favourite country singer, and I have to say there isn't a lot in it, but I think Marty just edges it ,he has so much emotion in his wonderful voice.

    Your right its a flip of the coin

  3. Nancy Hassey

    Loved Marty Robbins...he had a voice like none other...Especially love his song Walking Piece of Heaven...don't know why it is so hard to buy a copy of that song...can't find it anywhere...sad cause i would love to have it in library of music...but he will always be a favorite of mine...Saw him back in the early 70s in concert in Ohio.

  5. Deborah Dyess

  6. robert twin

    The best

  7. Anthony Seiler

    Another Great song from the Greatest One.

  8. Mic

    Egad, a fantastic song-writer in his own right, doing a Merle Haggard tune. It makes you wonder why.cause Marty could (and did) write with the very best of 'em. Neve-the-rless, he did a great job on this - his talent was amazing,

  9. Ms. Lou

    I did not realize Marty sang this cover of Merle Haggards song. A beautiful job. Love both versions.

    One of the best versions of this song I've heard in quite sometime. I regret that I never got to see Marty perform live on stage, he left all his fans with a big whole in their heart when he passed away. Thanks for posting!
