lyrics

you were staying with your grandparents
in tennessee for the summer
we were 15 and we'd been together
for a little over a year
i didn't know what to do with myself
you emailed me everyday
told me it took you about an hour
to send each one of them
because they only had dialup
where they lived out in the country
you hated it there on the farm
your uncles always told you stories
about how the previous owner
hung himself out in the barn
and it kept you up all night
all we talked about was turning
18 and getting married at the court house
your parents coldn't stop us then
you sent me some pictures
you took while you were out there
there was one of  you smiling while you
posed next to your grandpa's old blue ford
that didn't run anymore but there was
a mountain of coke cans in the back of it
goddamn, i've never seen anything so beautiful
