  • 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
    'Till 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 'till 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 Writer/s: John Charles Ims
