ITíS TRUE

 Written: Monterey Street, Farmington NM, spring 1965

 

Knees wrote this when he was playing with The Torques, and it was one of his few slow songs. The words are pretty insipid but the chords are rather interesting, especially for 1965. Later, in the 70s and 80s in Las Cruces, this was one of the Calhoon Brothers favorite tunes. Mark Coker, the guitar player, said it reminded him of the Beau Brummels.

 

Though skies are grey my love,

Weíll find a way my love

And itís true, I love you

 

Though leaves may fall my love,

Iíll give you all my love

And itís true, I love you.

 

And you know I need you, itís no mystery

And Iíll never leave you but will always be

 

Right by your side my love,

Not a thing to hide my love

And itís true, I love you.
