How many girls
Choose cotton dress worlds
When they could have satins and lace
And stand by her man
Through good times and bad
And still keep a smile on her face
And how many hearts
Could face the winters we've known
And still not turn gold

[Chorus x2]
True love travels on a gravel road
Love is a stranger and hearts are in danger
On smooth streets
Paved with gold

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
Not once have I seen your
Blue eyes fill with envy
Or stray from the warmth
That they hold

[Repeat chorus]

Now love is a stranger and hearts are in danger
On smooth streets
Paved with gold

[Repeat chorus x8]
