If You're Not Gone Too Long

This song is by Loretta Lynn and appears on the album Singin' With Feelin' (1967).

I'm gonna wipe these teardrops from my eyes
There ain't no use for me to cry
And there's some things I think I need to say
I'll think about you every day, every day while you're away.

I'll be true to you honey, while you're gone
If you're not gone too long
But if you're gone for a year or two
It may be too long for me to be true.

I might find somebody else
'Cause I get lonesome by myself
I'll be the truest love you've known
And for a while I'll stay at home.

I'll be true to you honey, while you're gone
If you're not gone too long
But if you're gone for a year or two
It may be too long for me to be true.

Tomorrow you'll be gone I know
So love me now before you go.
We don't know
What's farther down the road.

There may be a detour sign
To upset plans of yours and mine
I'll be true to you honey, while you're gone
If you're not gone too long.

But if you're gone for a year or two
It may be too long for me to be true.

I might find somebody else
'Cause I get lonesome by myself
I'll be the truest love you've known
And for a while I'll stay at home.

Oh yeah, if you're not gone too long...
