My True Love
Jack Scott Lyrics

I prayed to the Lord to send a love
He sent me an angel from Heaven above
The stars in the skies, He placed in her eyes
She is my true love

The touch of her hand, captured my soul
And the kiss from her lips set my heart aglow
And I know from Heaven, From Heaven above
Came my, my true love
Darling, I love you, I'll always be true, my prayers
They were answered and the Lord sent me you
With love and devotion that I never knew
Until the Lord above sent me you
And I thank the Heaven
The Heaven above
For sending my true love
My true love!

I'm nearly 78 now and these old records bring back the warmest memories anyone could ask for. What a time it was to be young.

Zack Fleming

I am also nearly 78 and Jack is another of the original "rockabillies" that crossed over from C & W to early rock and roll. Many good memories from the late 50s and early 60s.
