True Love And Time

Tommy Makem

If I had wings, I'd fly the mountains

If I had a boat, I'd sail the sea

The dreary miles are long and lonesome

That lie between my love and me


True love and time go on forever

But love and distance cannot agree

When true love calls, a man will find it

Just like a river will find the sea

My true love lives in a quiet valley

Where sweet, warm winds, they always blow

I left her there to seek my fortune

Though why I left her, I'll never know


Come rain or shine, I'll start tomorrow

To where my heart can find some rest

And I won't mind the long hard journey

I'll find the one that I love best
