1920’S EYES

 

LORD, WHERE DO I START? I HAVEN’T HEARD YOUR NAME IN SO LONG

I THOUGHT OF YOU THE OTHER DAY, I HEARD THAT OLD NEIL YOUNG SONG

IT BROUGHT ME BACK TO THAT ONE SUMMER, WE USED TO CHASE THEM GIRLS AROUND

WE USED TO TEAR ASS IN YOUR NOVA, MAN, WE THOUGHT WE OWNED THAT TOWN

LORD, WHERE DO I START? I HAVEN’T HEARD YOUR NAME IN SO LONG

 

THIS NEW GIRL I’VE BEEN SEEING, SHE’S GOT THEM 1920’S EYES

LIKE A PICTURE FROM A BOOK THEY MADE US READ WHEN WE WERE SIXTEEN

SHE WAITS TABLES TWICE A WEEK ON TOP OF BARBERING FULL TIME

YOU WOULDN’T GUESS IT LOOKING AT HER, SHE’S THE HARD WORKING TYPE

THIS NEW GIRL I’VE BEEN SEEING HAS GOT THEM 1920’S EYES

 

NOW I’VE GOT TO GO, IT’S FRIDAY NIGHT, AND THERE’S THIS REDHEAD AT THE DOOR

DRESSED IN HEELS AND TAPPING HER TOES

THERE’S MUCH MORE NEEDING SAID, I’M SURE YOU’VE GOT ONE OF YOUR OWN

AND I’VE GOT TWENTY BUCKS CALLING SHE’S A BLONDE

SO I’LL CALL YOU BACK, I’LL DROP YOU A LINE

I’LL MAKE IT OUT WEST RIGHT AS SOON AS I FIND THE TIME

I’VE GOT TO LET YOU GO, I’VE GOT TO GET TO GOING OUT TONIGHT

 

SHE’S BEEN ALL DOLLED FOR HOURS, WATCHING ME LIKE I WAS TRAFFIC LIGHT

AND I’M COMBING MY HAIR BACK, WE’RE GOING TO PAINT THIS CITY RED TONIGHT

SEE IT’S MY FIRST ONE OFF IN AGES, AND SHE’S SPENT THAT WHOLE TIME WAITING

NOW HER FAVORITE BAND IS PLAYING AT THIS BAR THAT I’M KNOWN TO FREQUENT

THIS NEW GIRL I’VE BEEN SEEING SHE HAS GOT THEM 1920’S EYES
