The Everly Brothers – Devoted to You Lyrics

Darlin’ you can count on me
Till the sun dries up the sea
Until then I’ll always be devoted to you
I’ll be yours through endless time
I’ll adore your charms sublime
Guess by now you know that I’m devoted to you
I’ll never hurt you, I’ll never lie
I’ll never be untrue
I’ll never give you reason to cry
I’d be unhappy if you were blue
Through the years my love will grow
Like a river it will flow
It can’t die because I’m so devoted to you
I’ll never hurt you, I’ll never lie
I’ll never be untrue
I’ll never give you reason to cry
I’d be unhappy if you were blue
Through the years my love will grow
Like a river it will flow
It can’t die because I’m so devoted to you
