Lyrics

Well, I've heard those city singers
Singing 'bout how they can love
Deeper than the oceans
Higher than the stars above
But I come from the country
And I know I ain't seen it all

But I heard that ocean's salty
And the stars, they sometimes fall
And that would not do justice
To the way I feel for you
So I had to sing this song
About all the things I knew
My love is deeper than the holler, stronger than the river

Higher than the pine trees growin' tall upon the hill
My love is purer than the snowflakes that fall in late December
And honest as a Robin on a springtime window sill
And longer than the song of a whippoorwill

From the back roads to the Broadway shows
With a million miles between
There's at least a million love songs
That people love to sing
And every one is different
And every one's the same
And this is just another way

Of saying the same thing
My love is deeper than the holler, stronger than the river
Higher than the pine trees growin' tall upon the hill
My love is purer than the snowflakes that fall in late December
And honest as a Robin on a springtime window sill
And longer than the song of a whippoorwill
My love is deeper than the holler, stronger than the river
Higher than the pine trees growin' tall upon the hill
My love is purer than the snowflakes that fall in late December
And honest as a Robin on a springtime window sill
And longer than the song of a whippoorwill
