Big Jim Butcher was the king of the hill
He ran his business with a deadly will
His foreman, John, had a pretty wife
The way she looked cut Jim like a knife

John was weak and his wife was too
Her name was Kate and she fell in too
She let Big Jim do what he had to do
And John stood by and his life was through

It was all in the name of love
All in the name of love
You can't change the stars above
All in the name of love

John took a bottle one drink at a time
Stared off in space as he lost his mind
Knew who it was on the telephone
He saw it all and he felt so alone

One dark morning, John stood up like a man
He took his shotgun with a steady hand
He went to the motel, broke the door in
He left two holes where two hearts had been

It was all in the name of love
All in the name of love
You can't change the stars above
All in the name of love

He called the preacher and he called the law
And when they got there it was pretty raw
He said,"Boys, you better come and take me away
I've done all I can do in the name of love today"

It was all in the name of love
All in the name of love
You can't change the stars above
All in the name of love

It was all in the name of love
All in the name of love
You can't change the stars above
All in the name of love

It was all in the name of love
All in the name of love
You can't change the stars above
All in the name of love
