Ain't No Love In The Heart Of The City
Bobby "Blue" Bland Lyrics


Ain't no love in the heart of the city
Ain't no love in the heart of town
Ain't no love, and it's sure 'nuff a pity
Ain't no love, 'cause you ain't around

When you were mine
Oh, I was feeling so good
'Cause your love lit up this old neighborhood
And now that you're gone
You know the sun don't shine
From the city hall to the county line
That's why I said

Ain't no love in the heart of the city
Ain't no love in the heart of town
Ain't no love, and it sure is a pity
Ain't no love, 'cause you ain't around

Every place that I go
Oh, it seems so strange
Without you there
Things have changed
The night time calls
There's a blanket of gloom
Another teardrop falls
In my lonely room

I said ain't no love
In the heart of the city
Ain't no love in the heart of town
Ain't no love, ain't any pity
Ain't no love 'cause you ain't around

And now that you're gone
Oh, the sun don't shine
From the city hall to the county line, I said

Ain't no love in the heart of the city
Ain't no love in the heart of town
Ain't no love, it sure is a pity
Ain't no love 'cause you ain't around
'Cause you ain't around

Ain't no love in the heart of the city
Ain't no love in this great big old town
Ain't no love, and ain't it a pity
Ain't no love 'cause you ain't around

Ain't no love in the heart of the city
Ain't no love in the heart of this town

[Chorus]
Ain't no love in the heart of the city
Ain't no love in the heart of town
Ain't no love and it's sure nuff a pity
Ain't no love cause you ain't around

[Verse 1]
When you were mine
Oh, I was feeling so good
Cause you lovelied up
This whole neighborhood

[Bridge]
But now that you're gone
You know the sun don't shine
From the city hall to the county line
And that's why I said

[Chorus]
Ain't no love in the heart of the city
Ain't no love in the heart of town
Ain't no love and it sure is a pity
Ain't no love cause you ain't around

[Verse 2]
Every place that I go
Oh, it seems so strange
Without you there
Things have changed
The nights are cold
There's a blanket of gloom
Another teardrop falls
In my lonely room

[Chorus]
I said ain't no love
In the heart of the city
Ain't no love in the heart of town
Ain't no love, ain't any pity
Ain't no love cause you ain't around

[Bridge]
And now that you're gone
Oh, the sun don't shine
From the city hall to
The county line, I said

[Chorus]
Ain't no love in the heart of the city
Ain't no love in the heart of town
Ain't no love, it sure is a pity
Ain't no love cause you ain't around
Cause you ain't around
Ain't no love in the heart of the city
Ain't no love in this great big old town
Ain't no love and ain't it a pity
Ain't no love cause you ain't around
Ain't no love in the heart of the city
Ain't no love in the heart of this town

This is not a song. This is the sound of an amazing soul. Thank god for this amazing art.

The music sounds so beautiful and sad at the same time. It makes me imagine of how downtowns (particularly those in the US like Detroit) were decaying during the time this music was created.

Brian J. Carnevale

Never got his just do as far as I am concerned. because I have been a radio fanatic for the last 45+ years. NEVER rem his name being mentioned, and if it was I would have remembered.
