True Love Travels on a Gravel Road


You might know the Elvis version of this song, but the Highwaymen's is my favorite.

Now love is a stranger and hearts fill with danger,
On smooth streets paved with gold.
True love travels on a gravel road


TRUE LOVE TRAVELS ON A GRAVEL ROAD
Written by: Dallas Frazier and A. L. "Doodle" Owens
Performed by: The Highwaymen (Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson)



[Kristofferson:]
How many girls choose cotton dress worlds,
When they could have satins and lace?
Stand by her man through good times and bad,
An' still keep a smile on her face?

[Nelson:]
And how many hearts could face the winters we've known,
And still not turn cold.

[All 4:]
True love travels on a gravel road.

[Nelson:]
Love is a stranger and hearts are in danger
On smooth streets paved with gold.

[All 4:]
True love travels on a gravel road.

[Cash:]
Down through the years,
We've had hard times and tears.
But it only makes our love grow.
And we'll stay together no matter how hard the wind blows.

[Jennings:]
Not once have I've seen your blue eyes fill with envy,
Or stray from the warmth that they hold.

[All 4:]
True love travels on a gravel road.

[Jennings:]
Now love is a stranger and hearts fill with danger,
On smooth streets paved with gold.

[All 4:]
True love travels on a gravel road.

[Alternate Cash & all 4:]
True love travels on a gravel road.
True love travels on a gravel road.
True love travels on a gravel road.
True love travels on a gravel road.
True love travels on a gravel road.
True love travels on a gravel road.
True love travels on a gravel road.
