About The Song
– Some Christian worshipers end the Lord’s Prayer with the words “forever and ever, amen.” It’s a statement of unequivocal faith that in this song is directed to a person. Travis promises to always be true, assuring the lady that even though he was wild and foolish in his younger days, he’s all-in this time.
– The single was first released in March 1987. It debuted on Billboard’s country charts on April 25, 1987. The song peaked at number one for three weeks on June 13, 1987, the first single to do so on the country charts since Johnny Lee’s “Lookin’ for Love” seven years prior.
You may think that I’m talkin’ foolishYou’ve heard that I’m wild and I’m free You may wonder how I can promise you now This love that I feel for you always will beBut you’re not just time that I’m killin’I’m no longer one of those guys As sure as I live, this love that I give Is gonna be yours until the day that I dieOh, baby, I’m gonna love you foreverForever and ever amenAs long as old men sit and talk about the weather As long as old women sit and talk about old men If you wonder how long I’ll be faithful I’ll be happy to tell you again I’m gonna love you forever and ever Forever and ever, amenThey say time takes its toll on a bodyMakes the young girls brown hair turn gray But honey, I don’t care, I ain’t in love with your hair And if it all fell out, well, I’d love you anywayThey say time can play tricks on a memoryMake people forget things they knew Well, it’s easy to see, it’s happenin’ to me I’ve already forgotten every woman but youOh, darlin’, I’m gonna love you foreverForever and ever amenAs long as old men sit and talk about the weather As long as old women sit and talk about old men If you wonder how long I’ll be faithful Well, just listen to how this song ends I’m gonna love you forever and ever Forever and ever, amenI’m gonna love you forever and everForever and ever, forever and ever Forever and ever, amen
