1. I've been travling over mountains, even through the valley's, too,

      - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -   A                                             B7

    I've been traveling night and day, I've been running all the way,

                                        E

    baby, trying to get to you.

 

                                         E                                                              - E7

2. Ever since I read your letter where you said you loved me true,

      - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -   A                                             B7

    I've been traveling night and day, I've been running all the way,

                                        E

    baby, trying to get to you.

 

   E                                          A                                            E

+     When I read your loving letter then my heart began to sing,

                                                  A                                               B7

    there were many miles between us, but they didn't mean a thing.

 

                                          E                                                               - E7

3. I just had to reach you baby in spite of all you have been through,

      - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -    A                                       B7

    I kept traveling night and day, I kept running all the way,

                                        E

    baby, trying to get to you.

 

+   A - E - A - B7

 

                                      E                                               - E7

4. Well, if I had to do it over that's exactly what I'd do,

      - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -    A                                               B7

    I would travel night and day and then I'd still run all the way

                                        E

    baby, trying to get to you.

 

                                                        A

+  Well, there's nothing that could hold me here,

                                                            E

    or that could keep me away from you,

                                          A

    when your loving letter told me,

                                             B7

    that you really loved me true !

 

 

 

 

 

                                           E                                                           E7

5. Lord above, he knows I love you, it was he who brought me through,

      - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -    A                                                 B7

    when my way was dark as night, it would shine as bright as light,

                                                 E     - A - E

    when I was trying to get to you.
