Well, it's a sweet dream that keeps me close to you dear
And it's a sad thing that we're apart, I'm blue dear
And there are times now I thank the heavens up above
When I'm with the one that I love

Now there are diamonds that some may long to see
And they may shine but not bright enough for me
I wouldn't take no, the whole world dipped in gold
For a night with my Tennessee rose

Take this love I am giving for it's truly the lasting kind
The gift I hold is believing that you will always be mine

Take this love that I am giving for it's truly the lasting kind
The gift I hold is believing that you will always be mine
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

KAREN BROOKS, HANK DEVITO
