Written by Freddie Hart, Big hit by Carl Smith
So long we've been married, life's burdens we've carried,
Though faith kept us humble and made our love true.
But plans that we make up, someone seems to break up,
Oh darling, what else can we do ?
We may have to leave here to find peace of mind dear,
Someplace where we can live a life all our own.
For I know you l love me, and happy we could be,
If some folks would leave us alone.
When I go out walking, there's lots of loose talking,
They say you're unhappy and we'll break apart.
But darling it's not true, because I still love you,
And I do with all of my heart.,
They say you are leaving, that you are deceiving,
But you tell me they say the same about me.
But, we'll show them they're wrong, their loose talk can't do harm
And hope that the truth they will see.
