I was a young troubadour when I rode in on a song. And, I'll be an old troubadour when I'm gone.
Cause I'm carryin' your love with me
From West Virginia down to Tennessee
I'll be movin' with the good lord speed, carryin' your love with me
It's my strength for holdin' on
Every minute that I have to be gone
I'll have everything I'll ever need
Carryin' your love with me
You're the only one and only
My heart's beating for
I love you, need I say more
In all the world you'll never find a love as true as mine.
