Waylon Jennings – But You Know I Love You lyrics

(Mike Settle)
When the morning sun streaks across my room
And I'm wakened up from another dream of you
Yes I'm on the road once again it seems
All I've left behind is a chain of broken dreams.
But you know I love you
Yes, I love you oh I love you.
How I wish this love was all we'd need to live
What a life we'd have cause I've got so much to give
And it seems so wrong deep inside my heart
That the dollar sign chould be keeping us apart.
But you know I love you
Yes, I love you oh I love you.
And if only we could find our way back to the times
When the problems of this life had not yet crossed our minds
For the answers could be found in children's nursery rhymes
I'd come running back to you.
I'd come running back to you.
--- Instrumental ---
But you know we can't live on dreams alone
And to pay the rent got us leave you all alone
But you know I made my choice many years ago
Now this traveling life is the only one I know.
But you know I love you.
Yes, I love you oh I love you.
Yes, you know I love you.
yes, I love you.
Oh, I love you...
