"Red Ragtop" as written by and Jason White....
Well I was twenty and she was eighteen
And we were just about as wild as we were green
In the ways of the world
She picked me up in that red ragtop
And we were free of the folks and hiding from the cops
Out on the summer nights, runnin' all the red lights
And we parked way out in a clearin' in a grove
And the night was as hot as a coal burnin' stove
And we were cookin' the gas
Knew it had to last

In the back of that red ragtop
She said please don't stop

Well the very first time her mother met me
Her green-eyed girl had been a mother to be for two weeks
I was out of a job and she was in school
Life was fast and the world was cruel
And we were young and wild,
We decided not to have the child
So we did what we did and we tried to forget
And we swore up and down there would be no regrets
In the morning light
And on the way home that night

In the back of that red ragtop
She said please don't stop
Lovin' me

We took one more trip around the sun
But it was all make believe in the end
And I can't say where she is today
I can't remember who I was back then

Well you do what you do and you pay for your sins
And there's no such thing as what might've been
That?s a waste of time
Drive you outta your mind
I was stopped at a red light just yesterday
Beside a young girl in a Cabriolet
And her eyes were green
And I was in an old scene

I was back in that red ragtop
On the day she stopped
Lovin' me
I was back in that red ragtop
On the day she stopped
Lovin' me
