Lyrics

Diana If You Love Me-Buddy Carter Truckdrivin’ Ballad


I stand here in the hallway with a heavy heart and a suitcase on the floor
A journey of a thousand miles begins as I walk towards the door
When I start to kiss your tender lips and hold you in my arms once more
I see that look of disappointment in your eyes like so many times before


18 wheels a hummin’ on the highway sure do sing a lonely song
and the white lines that pass me by remind me of how long I’ve been gone
I’d rather be home with you but that won’t keep a roof above our heads
And I’d rather kiss and hold you close but that won’t keep our little babies fed


Chorus: So Diana if you love me won’t you keep the fire burnin’ while I’m gone
And let it’s beacon light guide me home down this lonely road I’m on
And when I go to sleep tonight I’ll say a prayer for you from God above
‘Cos even though we’re far apart you’ll always be the only one I’ll love


I married you for life but it feels like my life is not my own
Three weeks on the highway then I only get to spend 3 days at home
You married me for better or for worse but not to be alone
That’s the trouble bein’ married to a man who’s paid to be a rollin’ stone


If I could find another line of work then this ol’ truck would set me free
Home would be a place I lived and not just some place a’callin’ me
I could be the husband that you married and the father I should be
And make that look of disappointment in your eyes just a distant memory.


Chorus: So Diana if you love me won’t you keep the fire burnin’ while I’m gone
And let it’s beacon light guide me home down this lonely road I’m on
And when I go to sleep tonight I’ll say a prayer for you from God above
‘Cos even though we’re far apart you’ll always be the only one I’ll love
