  • Starin' at you takin' off your makeup
    Wondering why you even put it on
    I know you think you do but, baby, you don't need it
    Wish that you could see what I see it when it's gone
    I see a dust trail following an old red Nova
    Baby blue eyes, your head on my shoulder

    [Chorus]
    Wait, baby, don't move, right there it is
    T-shirt hanging off a dogwood branch
    That river was cold, but we gave love a chance
    Yeah, yeah, to me
    You don't look a day over fast cars and freedom
    That sunset river bank first time feeling

    Yeah, smile and shake your head as if you don't believe me
    I'll just sit right here and let you take me back
    I'm on that gravel road, look at me
    On my way to pick you up; you're standing on the front porch
    Looking just like that, remember that?

    I see a dust trail following an old red Nova
    Baby blue eyes, your head on my shoulder

    [Chorus]

    I see a dust trail following an old red Nova
    Baby blue eyes, your head on my shoulder
    You don't look a day over fast cars and freedom
    That sunset river bank first time feeling Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
