"Fool for Love" as written by and Ben Schneider....
I'm leaving this place behind
And I'm heading out on the road tonight
I'm off for the winter lands
Way up north to have taught you to stand
Before I commence my ride
I'm asking Lily to be my bride
I know there's another man
But he ain't gonna delay my plans

I know she's gonna be my wife
Gonna fall in love I'm gonna live my life with her
You know I bet he's not so tough
Ain't afraid of him cause I'm a fool for love

I've come far to find Big Jim
Well here I am and I guess you him
I see how you got your name
You're tall as hell and broad as a train
They say you a hard-broiled man
And the baddest guy in the whole wide land
Well I'm not afraid to fight
Let's step outside and I'll show you why

I'm humming like a revved up truck
Never mind the odds I'm gonna try my luck with her
Just tell me when you've had enough
I'm dangerous cause I'm a fool for love

You know you don't hit half bad
For my love I will lay in the grave tonight
Just wait until I catch my breath
Gonna send you off to an early death

I lie in the drifting snow
Bleeding out as it covers me up
If Spring comes before I'm found
Just throw my bones in a hole in the ground

I lost friends along my way
I knew I'd need them eventually
No I'm not afraid to die
Just mad I left Big Jim alive

I know I should've never looked back
But you ain't gonna win a woman's heart like that
I never should've called his bluff
I was born to lose cause I'm a fool for love

I stare into the endless sky
And I saw a tale of my life go by
I drift into the great unknown
I really don't know where I'm going

I stare into the endless sky
And I saw a tale of my life go by
I drift into the great unknown
I really don't know where I'm going

    I'm leaving this place behind
    And I'm heading out on the road tonight
    I'm off for the hinterlands
    Way up north where the tall trees stand
    Before I commence my ride
    I'm asking Lily to be my bride
    I know there's another man
    But he ain't gonna delay my plans

    I know she's gonna be my wife
    Gonna fall in love I'm gonna live my life with her
    You know I bet he's not so tough
    Ain't afraid of him cause I'm a fool for love

    I come for to find Big Jim
    Well here I am and I guess you him
    I see how you got your name
    You're tall as hell and broad as a train
    They say you're a hard worn man
    And the baddest guy in the whole wide land
    Well I'm not afraid to fight
    Let's step outside and I'll show you why

    I'm hummin' like a revved up truck
    Never mind the odds I'm gonna try my luck with her
    Just tell me when you've had enough
    I'm dangerous cause I'm a fool for love

    You know you don't hit half bad
    Oh but I'm gonna lay you to ground tonight
    Just wait until I catch my breath
    Gonna send you off to an early death

    I lie in the drifting snow
    Bleeding out as it covers me over
    If spring comes before I'm found
    Just throw my bones in a hole in the ground

    I lost friends along my way
    I knew I'd meet them eventually
    No I'm not afraid to die
    Just mad I left Big Jim alive

    I know I should've never looked back
    But you ain't gonna win a woman's heart like that
    I never should've called his bluff
    I was born to lose cause I'm a fool for love

    I stare into the endless sky
    And the sorry tale of my life goes by
    I drift into the great unknown
    I really don't know where I'm going

    I stare into the endless sky
    And the sorry tale of my life goes by
    I drift into the great unknown
    I really don't know where I'm going
