A cowboy return to the scene of his childhood
To his sweetheart of long long ago
But today he returns she was wed to another
Tells the story of heartbreak and woe
Head bowed lonesome and blue
Church bells ringin'
Boy sat singin'
Someone sayin' adieu
Love's old sweet song
Was never meant to turn out wrong
Even in a cowboy's song 'bout old pal
I guess we strayed too long
Yes sir, heaven bless her
Either caress her
As we ride the heartbreak trail
(Love's old sweet song...
Was never meant to turn out wrong.)
