I'm gonna wipe these teardrops from my eyes
There ain't no use for me to cry
And there's some things I think I need to say

I'll think about you every day, every day while you're away
I'll be true to you honey while you're gone
If you're not gone too long

But if you're gone for a year or two
It may be too long for me to be true
I might find somebody else 'cause I get lonesome by myself

I'll be the truest love you've known
And for a while I'll stay at home
I'll be true to you honey while you're gone
If you're not gone too long

Tomorrow you'll be gone I know
So love me now before you go
We don't know what's farther down the road

There may be a detour sign to upset plans of yours and mine
I'll be true to you honey while you're gone
If you're not gone too long

But if you're gone for a year or two
It may be too long for me to be true
I might find somebody else 'cause I get lonesome by myself

I'll be the truest love you've known
And for a while I'll stay at home
I'll be true to you honey while you're gone
If you're not gone too long
Oh yeah, if you're not gone too long
