"True Love Ways" as written by and A. Nugetre....
Just you know why
Why you and I
Will bye and bye
Know true love ways

Sometimes we'll sigh
Sometimes we'll cry
And we'll know why
Just you and I
Know true love ways

Throughout the days
Our true love ways
Will bring us joys to share
With those who really care

Sometimes we'll sigh
Sometimes we'll cry
And we'll know why
Just you and I
Know true love ways

Throughout the days
Our true love ways
Will bring us joys to share
With those who really care

Sometimes we'll sigh
Sometimes we'll cry
And we'll know why
Just you and I
Know true love ways

    General CommentBuddy’s voice saves this from being schmaltzy. A couple covers come to mind when I think of how it could have gone wrong. The orchestration is also top-notch, though the record would have had a lovely spin with just BH and his guitar.

    In my opinion, this song works specifically because Buddy was not a crooner – at least, not in the traditional sense. This song is less smoke-and-mirrors and more gentle, earnest, and classy. Talk about your triple threat.

    This song is special to me because it is both romantic and realistic. It acknowledges the truth: that sometimes life will be difficult. The couple will cry, but they’ll work through it together. It might even bring them closer.

    I like that, while this song acknowledges the outside world (sharing joys with those who really care), it is also very intimate. “Just you and I” know these ways of true love.

    I’ve often thought of this song in terms of a couple starting out – the use of “will by and by,” “throughout the days,” and “will bring us” suggests that they’re looking into the future; yet, it’s applicable in far greater scope.

    And what are the ways of true love? Oh, really… ;)

    General CommentI agree, this song is realistic. Love isn't always sunshine & rainbows.... it's got tough times too.

    General CommentGreat song, about love of course but it doesnt come off as overly sappy. Its a shame there arent more comments on Buddy Holly though, he's original punk rock!

    General CommentIf love's gone through rough times and is still strong, then you know its a strong love. When it's easy, it doesn't last. That's my idea of the song and of love anyways.
