The last time I thought about leaving
Was the last time I made her cry
I’ve talked myself out of believing
That true true love never dies
The first time I though of returning
Was just ten lonesome miles out of town
But my foolish pride kept these wheels a-turning
There’s nothing on this earth gonna shut me down.
If I had one drop of water
For each and every tear I have cried
I’d sail back to her on an ocean of sorrow
True true love never dies.
The fires in vain turn to ashes
Your pride will forsake you by and by
The lonesomest night surely passes
That old true true love never dies.
