Een Shoot the Moon site laatst bijgewerkt op: 22 september 2021 ©  2021 Jerry Reeds A thing called love werd o.m. gecoverd door Elvis Presley en Johnny Cash. Voor de laatste werd het zijn grootste hit in Europa (en Nederland, nummer 6 in 1972). Hij werd begeleid door het Evangel Temple Choir. 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 hand But like the wind that 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 all around... Ever since time nothing's ever been found That's stronger than love (Aaaah, thing called love) Most men are like me, they struggle in doubt They trouble their minds day in and day out Too busy with living 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 hand But like the wind that 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 all 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 (Aaaah, thing called love).
