Ricky Van Shelton - I'll Leave This World Loving You Lyrics

 

Walk away, leave with my blessing

Once in a while, let me hear from you

If we never meet again before my life is over

I'll leave this world loving you

 

You can take everything but my memories

For they're good ones and they'll see me through

If we never meet again, I'll love you forever

I'll leave this world loving you

 

You were mine for a time and I'm thankful

Oh, but life will be so lonesome without you

If we never meet again this side of heaven

I'll leave this world loving you

 

If we never meet again this side of heaven

I'll leave this world loving you
