Written and recorded by the Louvin Brothers
[G]Sad and alone in a mansion
No loving wife to [D7]caress
Sat a man sad and lonely
No loving wife’s lips to [G]kiss
She married him for position
No [G7]love in her heart had [C]she
Sad and alone in [G]his fine [Em]home
He [D7]looked all around him and [G]said
What is a home without a baby
To love and to tease and [D7]adore
What is home without a sweet wife
To kiss you each night at the [G]door
What is a home without sunshine
To [G7]spread its bright rays from [C]above
You can have wealth and [G]its plea[Em]sures
But [D7]what is a home without [G]love
Walking down the streets one evening
He passed by a cottage so [D7]neat
Stopped and looked in the window
He saw there a picture so [G]sweet
A husband a wife and a baby
They [G7]were hugging and kissing [C]too
He turned aside his [G]tears to [Em]hide
And [D7]from his lips came these [G]words
Who sang the the song What Is A Home Without Love?
– The song What Is A Home Without Love was sang by The Louvin Brothers.
Who is The Louvin Brothers?
– The Louvin Brothers were an American musical duo composed of brothers Ira (April 21, 1924 – June 20, 1965) and Charlie (July 7, 1927 – January 26, 2011) Louvin (nÃ© Loudermilk). The brothers are cousins to John D. Loudermilk, a Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member.
The brothers wrote and performed secular country music, as well as fire-and-brimstone gospel music. Ira played virtuoso mandolin and generally sang lead vocal in the tenor range, while Charlie played rhythm guitar and offered supporting vocals in a lower pitch. They helped popularize the vocal technique of close harmony in country and country-rock.After becoming regulars at the Grand Ole Opry and scoring a string of hit singles in the late 1950s and early ’60s, the Louvin Brothers broke up in 1963 due in large part to Charlie growing tired of Ira’s addictions and reckless behavior. Ira died in a traffic accident in 1965. They were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2001, and Charlie died of cancer in 2011. Rolling Stone ranked the Louvin Brothers No. 4 on its list of the 20 Greatest Duos of All Time.
