    She's In Love With The Boy Trisha Yearwood

    Katie's sittin' on her old front porch Watchin' the chickens peck the ground There ain't a whole lot goin' on tonight In this one horse town Over yonder comin' up the road In a beat up Chevy truck Her boyfriend Tommy is laying on the horn Splashing through the mud and the muck

    Her daddy say's he ain't worth a lick When it comes to brains He got the short end of the stick But Katie's young and man she just don't care She'd follow Tommy anywhere She's in love with the boy She's in love with the boy She's in love with the boy And even if they have to run away She's gonna marry that boy someday

    Katie and Tommy at the drive in movie Parked in the very last row They're to busy holding on to one another To even care about the show Later on outside the Tasty Freeze Tommy slips something on her hand He says my high school ring will have to do 'Til I can buy a wedding band

    Her daddy say's he ain't worth a lick When it comes to brains He got the short end of the stick But Katie's young and man she just don't care She'd follow Tommy anywhere She's in love with the boy She's in love with the boy She's in love with the boy And even if they have to run away She's gonna marry that boy someday

    Her Daddy's waitin up 'til half past twelve When they come sneakin' up the walk He says young lady get on up to your room While me and junior have a talk Momma breaks in says don't lose your temper It wasn't very long ago You yourself was just a hay seed plow boy Who didn't have a row to hoe

    My daddy said you wasn't worth a lick When it came to brains you got the short of the stick But he was wrong and honey you are too Katie looks at Tommy like I still look at you She's in love with the boy She's in love with the boy She's in love with the boy What's meant to be will always find a way She's in love with the boy She's in love with the boy She's in love with the boy What's meant to be will always find a way She's gonna marry that boy someday Source: LyricFind

    Love Story Taylor Swift

    We were both young when I first saw you I close my eyes, and the flashback starts I'm standing there On a balcony in summer air See the lights, see the party, the ball gowns See you make your way through the crowd And say, "Hello" Little did I know

    That you were Romeo, you were throwing pebbles And my daddy said, "Stay away from Juliet" And I was crying on the staircase Begging you, "Please don't go, " and I said

    Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone I'll be waiting, all there's left to do is run You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess It's a love story baby just say "Yes"

    So I sneak out to the garden to see you We keep quiet, 'cause we're dead if they knew So close your eyes Escape this town for a little while

    'Cause you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter And my daddy said, "Stay away from Juliet" But you were everything to me I was begging you please don't go and I said

    Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone I'll be waiting, all there's left to do is run You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess It's a love story baby just say "Yes" Romeo, save me, they're trying to tell me how to feel This love is difficult, but it's real Don't be afraid, we'll make it out of this mess It's a love story baby just say "Yes" Oh, oh

    I got tired of waiting Wondering if you were ever coming around My faith in you was fading When I met you on the outskirts of town, and I said

    Romeo save me I've been feeling so alone I keep waiting for you but you never come Is this in my head? I don't know what to think He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring

    And said "Marry me Juliet You'll never have to be alone I love you and that's all I really know I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress It's a love story baby just say 'Yes'"

    Oh, oh Oh, oh Because we were both young when I first saw you Source: LyricFind
