about

15. What is a Home Without Love? :: Sabra first heard this from a video called The Three Pickers with Earl Scruggs, Doc Watson, and Ricky Skaggs. But, it’s been recorded before by greats like the Blue Sky Boys, the Louvin Brothers and the Monroe Brothers. A song to remind you about what’s really important in life, in a relationship and in a home: Love over material wealth.

lyrics

Sad and alone in a mansion
No loving heart to caress
Sad, a man sat and lonely
No loving wife’s lips to kiss
She married him for a position
No love in her heart had she
Sad and alone in his fine home
He looked all around him and said

What is a home without a baby
Just to love and to tease and adore
What is a home without a sweetheart
To kiss you each night at the door
What is a home without sunshine
To spread its bright rays from above
You can have wealth and its pleasures
But what is a home without love

Walking out about one evening
He passed by a cottage so neat
And he stopped and he looked in the window
And he saw there a picture so sweet
A husband, a wife and a baby
Just a huggin’ and teasin’ too
He stepped aside his head to hide
And from his lips came these words

What is a home without a baby
Just to love and to tease and adore
What is a home without a sweetheart
To kiss you each night at the door
What is a home without sunshine
To spread its bright rays from above
You can have wealth and its pleasures
But what is a home without love
