The Love Between You and Me

Believe me

It’s better that way

You’re a drifter

And I’m a hometown gal

So she told him

Time and time again

So he smiled and settled right in

Then he’d get restless

And she’d wait by the phone

Never took long

Before he’d phone

Love needs no excuses

It just needs two people

To stay side by side

He’d drift on back

And they’d spend

Romantic days and nights

When the sun and the moon

Would only shine for them alone

She’d look at him and smile

She’d tell him it was alright

He’d hold her and swear

The she was so dear

Then another truck load

Would have to be hauled

And she’d vow to be waiting

But it’s a long haul

From city to city

And sometimes things

Just don’t go as they should

The next time he rolled in

He found her crying

Things were taking their toll

The love they shared

Was based on eternal bliss

And both ached when they parted

Finally they both became drifters

As he went from job to job

She followed him with love

Never tiring of the journey

Till they finally settled down

To raise a family

And the man of her dreams

Became a rancher

And their first baby boy

Learned to ride a pony

Sometimes life can be that way

Hard to find the rainbows end

You have to travel many rough roads

But it all seemed not to matter

When they lay under the big, bright stars of Texas

Just the three of them
