Being from Lubbock, TX, the hometown of the late, great Buddy Holly, I chose this song from him. I do love all his songs. We have lots of reminders of his life and legacy here, including a museum center, street named after him and his band, murals, and a statue at the walk of fame here, and also his grave site.

From a Wiki article:

True Love Ways” is a song attributed to Norman Petty and Buddy Holly. Buddy Holly’s original was recorded with the Dick Jacobs Orchestra in October 1958, four months before the singer’s death.

Holly’s widow, Maria Elena Holly, claimed that the song was written for her as a wedding gift. On April 29, 2011, Mrs. Holly unveiled the never-before-seen “True Love Ways” photo of their wedding kiss, now displayed at P.J. Clarke’s above Table 53, the table where they became engaged while on their first date, on June 20, 1958.[9]

“True Love Ways”, by Buddy Holly, was released as a single from the album, “The Buddy Holly Story, Vol. 2”, in 1960. It was written by Buddy Holly and Norman Petty, and is on the Coral label.

Just you know why
Why you and I
Will bye and bye
Know true love ways
Sometimes we’ll sigh
Sometimes we’ll cry
And we’ll know why
Just you and I
Know true love ways
Throughout the days
Our true love ways
Will bring us joys to share
With those who really care
Sometimes we’ll sigh
Sometimes we’ll cry
And we’ll know why
Just you and I
Know true love ways
Throughout the days
Our true love ways
Will bring us joys to share
With those who really care
Sometimes we’ll sigh
Sometimes we’ll cry
And we’ll know why
Just you and I
Know true love ways
