I'll Be True to You Lyrics

by Oak Ridge Boys

They met up on the blue moon
And they parted on a cloudy day
They were so in love and out of school
But he was going so far, far away

She said, "I'll be true to you
Even though you don't want me to
And I'll be blue for you
Even though you've asked me not to"

Well, the years drifted by them as we all know they can
He found other women but she refused other men
But as fate would have it, they met again
She was on a down hill slide, he was just slidin' in

As he looked into her eyes that night he never realized
The only real love in his life was passin' by
When he turned and left her there, his words, "Good bye"
He heard her calling out to him and as he walked, she cried

"I've been true to you
Seems like speakin' to me is the least that you could do
And I've been blue for you
Even though you've asked me not to"

She'd been drinking way too hard one night
She'd been drinking way too long
Alone and pale in a cheap hotel
She died there in the dawn

Kneeling by her grave
Oh, so late and oh, so wrong
He longed to hold her close again
Crying on and on

He cried, "I'll be true to you
After all that I have put you through
And I'll be blue for you
Though you never even asked me to"
