True Love Like No Other

(Emily Higgins)
TRUE LOVE LIKE NO OTHER
By Emily Higgins

Handsome, young Navy man
Back in World War II
He flew a blimp above the ships
Above the ocean blue

When the war was over
He threw a potter’s wheel
In an Ozark town where he found
A girl whose heart he’d steal

She knew he was the one for her
Before he said a word
She was dark-haired, tall and beautiful
She sang like a bird

They spent their days of courting
Driving country roads
Fishing on the Finley River
Listening to the toads

She thought that he loved her truly
So when he packed up and went away
She thought that it was over
Nothing more to say

CHORUS:
But then he called her up from Galveston
In 1948
He told her that he missed her and said,
“I hope I’m not too late”
They married in November
When he took her by the hand
And placed upon her finger
A simple wedding band

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

BRIDGE:
The man became my father
And the woman, my sweet mother
It always will remain for me
A true love like no other

REPEAT CHORUS:
Because he called up from Galveston
In 1948
And he told her that he missed her and said,
“I hope I’m not too late”
They married in November
When he took her by the hand
And placed upon her finger
A simple wedding band

When I look into the eyes
Of my sisters and my brother
I’ll always be reminded of
A true love like no other

Yes, I’ll always be reminded of
My father and my mother
