45 rpm of True Love Ways by Buddy Holly

Pop Music

The song “True Love Ways” is one of the beautiful golden oldies from this first era of rock and roll. The song was written by Buddy Holly (and also credited to Norman Petty) song as a wedding gift to Holly’s wife Maria Elena. “True Love Ways” is said to be  inspired by one of Holly’s favorite Gospel songs, “I’ll be Alright.”   Holly recorded “True Love Ways” with the Ray Ellis Orchestra in October, 1958.

The instrumentalists on the track were: Al Caiola on guitar, Sanford Block on bass, Ernie Hayes on piano, Doris Johnson on harp, Abraham Richman on sax and Clifford Leeman on drums. This strings were arranged by Dick Jacobs. The song was first released after his Holly’s death in 1959 on the album The Buddy Holly Story, Vol. 2. A single was released in 1960 with “That Makes It Tough” as the B-side.

Buddy Holly was born Charles Hardin Holley on September 7, 1936, in Lubbock Texas. He was a singer, songwriter, producer, and performer. During his short career, Holly was able to merge the sounds of rockabilly, country music, and R&B to help make rock and roll popular. He died on February 3, 1959, at the age of 22 in a plane crash along with Ritchie Valens, The Big Bopper, and the pilot Roger Peterson. It became known as “the day the music died.”

Here are the lyrics to “True Love Ways” by Buddy Holly:

“Just you know why
Why you and I
Will by and by
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”
