True Love Never Dies Lyrics

by Earl Scruggs

The last time I thought about leavin'
Was the last time I made her cry
I talked myself out of believin'
That true, true love never dies

The first time I
Thought of returnin'
Was just ten lonesome
Miles out of town

But my foolish pride
Kept these wheels a-turnin'
Yeah, there was nothin'
On this earth gonna shut me down

But 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

Well, the fires of anger turn to ashes
Your pride will forsake you, by and by
The lonesome is not surely passin'
That ol' true, true love never dies

Well, 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
No, it never does

Well, if I had one drop of water
For each and every tear I have cried
Well, I'd sail back to her
On an ocean of sorrow
True, true love never dies

Well, I'd sail back to her
On an ocean of sorrow
True, true love never dies
Oh, it never dies, no, it never does
No, no, no

True, true love
True, true love
True, true love
