It took the song 30 weeks to make it to the US top 30, and it was the first country song to reach the peak spot since Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton’s Islands in the Stream.
Country love lyrics: I don’t know how you do what you do
I’m so in love with you
It just keeps getting better
I wanna spend the rest of my life
With you by my side
Forever and ever
Every little thing that you do
Baby, I’m amazed by you
Keith Whitley – When You Say Nothing at All
Ronan Keating did it well, and Alison Krauss did it better. But there’s no denying the raw country charm of the original by Keith Whitley. When You Say Nothing at All is one of those catchy and sweet tunes that just calms you down. The mood it evokes is quite fitting, considering it’s a song about how a couple gets along so well even when they don’t use words to communicate.
Country love lyrics: The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There’s a truth in your eyes saying you’ll never leave me
A touch of your hand says you’ll catch me if ever I fall
Now you say it best, when you say nothing at all

Created a world
Where dreams are a part
And you decorated my life
By paintin’ your love all over my heart
You decorated my life
Garth Brooks – If Tomorrow Never Comes
They say that regrets come in the end. That’s why Garth Brooks decided to pose this important question: will his girl know how much he loves her if tomorrow never comes? This song has a beautiful message about seizing the day and showing your partner all your love every day.
Country love lyrics: If tomorrow never comes
Will she know how much I loved her
Did I try in every way to show her every day
That she’s my only one
And if my time on earth were through
And she must face this world without me
Is the love I gave her in the past
Gonna be enough to last
If tomorrow never comes
Brad Paisley – Waitin’ On a Woman
Many country track tell a story, and this one’s no different. The song is told from the perspective of a young man who meets an elder gentleman. The elder gentleman talks about the love of his life, and how he’s always made to wait for her – whether it’s their first date, their wedding, with the things they do in life, and even in death. However, despite always being the one made to wait, he admits that it’s okay if she takes her time because he doesn’t mind waiting on her.
Country love lyrics: When I picked her up for our first date
I told her I’d be there at eight
And she came down the stairs at eight-thirty
She said I’m sorry that I took so long
Didn’t like a thing that I tried on
But let me tell you son she sure looked pretty
Yeah she’ll take her time but I don’t mind
Waitin’ on a woman
John Michael Montgomery – I Love the Way You Love Me

Country love lyrics: But I love the way you love me
Strong and wild, slow and easy
Heart and soul, so completely
I love the way you love me
Keith Urban – Making Memories of Us
Some of the best love songs were written with a lot of inspiration behind it. In this case, Making Memories of Us was written as a Valentine ’s Day gif by Rodney Crowell for his wife Claudia Church. It was then sung by Keith Urban on his wedding to Nicole Kidman back in 2006. It seems like a good luck charm as the couple are still married today.
Country love lyrics: I’m gonna be here for you baby
I’ll be a man of my word
Speak the language in a voice that you have never heard
I wanna sleep with you forever
And I wanna die in your arms
In a cabin by a meadow where the wild bees swarm
And I’m gonna love you like nobody loves you
And I’ll earn your trust making memories of us

Put some music on that’s soft and slow

I’ve been thinking ’bout this all day long
Never felt a feeling quite this strong
I can’t believe how much it turns me on
Just to be your man

God gave me you for the days of doubt
For when I think I’ve lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it’s true
God gave me you
Johnny Cash – Flesh and Blood
As with many country singers, Johnny Cash is known to be quite outdoorsy. He loves the great outdoors, and he says as much in this song. However, despite his love of Mother Nature, he admits that a man made of flesh and blood needs flesh and blood. And the one he’s singing to is the one he needs.
Country love lyrics: I leaned against a bark of birch
And I breathed the honey dew
I saw a North-bound flock of geese
Against a sky of baby blue
Beside the lily pads
I carved a whistle from a reed
Mother Nature’s quite a lady
But you’re the one I need
Flesh and blood needs flesh and blood
And you’re the one I need.
