Shawn Colvin and Mary Chapin Carpenter duet

I haven’t posted a music video in a long time, and this week I felt inspired to do so. I know it means I’m not posting one of my photos – but hey, this is my challenge, and I can do as I please!! 😉

I came across an interview with Shawn Colvin and March Chapin Carpenter about a year ago, where they sang this song together. It’s a very beautiful song, and their two voices together sound gorgeous.

In the interview, Shawn explains how Mary introduced herself very shyly – despite being a well-known singer and performer. That “shyness” – and the fact that she’s written a song titled “I Have A Need For Solitude” – suggests she’s a fellow introvert!

“That’s The Way Love Goes” – Buddy Miller

sung by Shawn Colvin and Mary Chapin Carpenter

I’ve been throwing horseshoes,
Over my left shoulder.
I’ve spent most all my life,
Searchin’ for that four-leafed clover.
When you ran with me,
Chasing my rainbows,
An’ honey, I love you, too,
And that’s the way love goes.
That’s the way love goes, babe;
That’s the music God made,
For all the world to sing.
It’s never old; it only grows.
Losing makes me sorry;
Well, now honey, don’t worry.
Don’t you know, I love you too.
That’s the way love goes.
That’s the way love goes, babe;
That’s the music God made,
For all the world to sing.
It’s never old; it only grows.
Losing makes me sorry;
You say: “Honey, now don’t worry.
“I love you too.”
That’s the way love goes.
