Just for the Love of It
by Charley Pride



I remember walking with my daddy through his weathered fields of grain
But he wouldn't curse the sun or give up on the rain
I asked him why don't you sell this place
Move to town you'll have money to burn
He said son you don't understand I don't do this for what I earn

Oh it's just for the love of it that's all the reason you need
What more could anyone ask satisfaction guaranteed
Don't chase rainbows or your pot of gold you'll always have enough
If you'll do everything you do just for the love

Drove on back to Nashville thinking
That my daddy's words couldn't be true
How could a man keep pouring out his heart just to get it broke in two
Then I looked around my two bare rooms and realized he wasn't wrong
And picked up this old guitar and poured out another song

Oh it's just for the love of it that's all the reason you need
What more could anyone ask satisfaction guaranteed
Don't chase rainbows or your pot of gold you'll always have enough
If you'll do everything you do just for the love

The next summer I walked with my daddy
Through his golden fields of grain
Giving thanks to heaven above for the sunshine and the rain
Just leave it in the good Lords hands He always will provide
And you'll know what His reason is you don't even have ask Him why

Oh it's just for the love of it that's all the reason you need
What more could anyone ask satisfaction guaranteed
Don't chase rainbows or your pot of gold you'll always have enough
If you'll do everything you do just for the love

Don't chase rainbows or your pot of gold you'll always have enough
If you'll do everything you do just for the love
