Most folks now days say old fashioned ways
Should give place to things that are new
But somehow I hold, to things that are old
Perhaps it’s an old fashioned view

I love my old books, the corners and nooks
Of my old home and the old friends
Old memories too, one love that is true
Lasting all through life until it ends

I’ve got that old fashioned love in my heart
Oh, play it for me, yes
And there it will always remain
My love is like an ivy vine
Clingin’ a little closer all the time
Through the years, joy and tears
Just the same

I’ve got that old fashioned faith in my heart, oh yes
No changes can’t tear it apart
If the dry land changed to sea
That would never make any change in me
'Cause I’ve got that old, old fashioned love in my heart

Yes I’ve got that old, old fashioned faith in my heart 
No changes can tear it apart
If the dry land changed to sea
That would never make any change in me
'Cause I’ve got that old, old fashioned love in my heart

Yes, I’ve got that old, old fashioned love in my heart
