Here are the lyrics of the song:  “True Love Travels on a Gravel Road”

🎵 Let’s sing along with the lyrics! 🎤
How many girls choose cotton dress worlds
When they could have satins and lace
And stand by her man, never once letting shade touch her faceHow many hearts could live through all the winters
We’ve known and still not be cold?
True love travels on a gravel roadLove is a stranger and hearts are in danger
On smooth streets paved with gold
Oh, true love travels on a gravel road, oh

Down through the years we’ve had hard times and tears
But they only helped our love grow
And we’ll stay together no matter how strong the wind blows

Not once have I seen your blue eyes filled with envy
Or stray from the one that you hold
Oh, true love travels on a gravel road

Love is a stranger and hearts are in danger
On smooth streets paved with gold
Oh, true love travels on a gravel road
Yeah, true love travels on a gravel road
True love travels on a gravel road
