  • She was sitting crossed legged on a hood of a ford
    Filing down her nails with a emery board
    Talking to her friends about people they knew
    And a lot the things that young girls do

    When she said you see that guy in the baseball cap
    I'd like to spend some time with a boy like that
    Betty said I seen him at the hardware store
    I think his name is Billy, but I'm not sure

    And as they talked a little while he passed by
    She smiled at him he just said "hi"
    He was thinking to him self as he walked away
    Man I'd like to find a girl like her someday

    Young love, strong love, true love
    It's a new love
    Their gonna make it through the hard times
    Walk those lines
    yeah these ties will bind
    Young love

    We'll she just couldn't stop her self from thinking about him
    And at a store downtown she saw him again
    She had both hands full
    He held open the door

    Said my name is Billy
    I've seen you before
    Can I help you with these
    Can I give you a ride

    Can I take you out on a Saturday night
    She didn't have to say what she was feeling inside
    He could see the answer shining in her eyes


    Well from that day on
    You couldn't keep them apart
    They were side by side, heart to heart
    Momma cried as Billy slipped the ring on her hand
    And when the baby was born she was crying again

    Well he worked real hard and put some money down
    On a little old house at the edge of town
    And that night as he held her he couldn't believe
    That god had made a girl that he'd never ever leave


    She was sitting crossed legged on the hood of a ford
    Filing down her nails with an emery board Writer/s: KENT M. ROBBINS, PAUL KENNERLEY
