Lyrics:

How many girls choose cotton dress worlds when they could have satins and lace

And stand by her man, never once letting shades touch her face
How many hearts could live through all the winters
We've known and still not be cold, oh, true love travels on a gravel road

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

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

1. (repete)

True love travels on a gravel road, mmm
Oh, true love travels on a gravel road, mmm
True love travels on a gravel road, oh yeah

True love travels on a gravel road, mmm…
