Trying To Get To You Lyrics

by Elvis Presley

I've been traveling over mountains
Even through the valleys too

I've been traveling night and day
I've been running all the way
Baby, trying to get to you

Ever since I read your letter
Where you said you loved me true

I've been traveling night and day
I've been runnin' all the way
Baby, trying to get to you

When I read your loving letter
Then my heart began to sing
There were many miles between us
But they didn't mean a thing

I just had to reach you, baby
In spite of all you put me through

I kept traveling night and day
I kept running all the way
Baby, trying to get to you

Yeah, well, nothing that could hold me
Or could keep away from you
When your loving letter told me
That you really loved me true

Lord, above you knows I love you
It was He that brought me through

When my way was dark at nights
He would shine His brightest light
When I was trying to get to you
