Charlie Louvin: The only way out is to walk over me


Charlie Louvin, American country singer, died today at 83 years. His most famous song is "The only way out is to walk over me." To me it is eye-opening that songs of unconditional love, especially ones that create a picture like this, are what touch people's hearts. Reminds me of this poem:

Love completely,
buy what for tell;
cast wholly, why hear
for heart in spell
See complete poem: Giving Into Love

There is so much to learn from angels. Here are the lyrics ...

The only way out is to walk over me
So you found someone else and you're going to leave
Did he tell you that I don't love you did you really believe
On the floor by the door I'll be down on my knees

And the only way out is to walk over me
You don't hear you don't feel but I know you can see
Just to prove that I love you I'll crawl at your feet
Just look down at the ground where your footprints will be
For the only way out is to walk over me

You have put me as low as a man oughta go
But I lay down beside what is left of my pride
If you go you will know cause you can't help but see
That the only way out is to walk over me
yes the only way out is to walk over me

Dolly Parton's version of the song:
