Cigarettes were a quarter then Bobby-socks and jeans were in
Elvis sang the songs that we loved so
And the most important thing to us was keeping gas in my old truck
So I could take us to the drive-in show

Then graduation finally came Uncle Sam called me away
You married someone else while I was gone
But I kept your letters all these years and I can't help but shed a tear
When I read the words you wrote me years ago

Baby I'm yours I'll love you always
I'm gonna stand by you until the end of time
Remember all of the good things that we shared together
Signed love Betty 1959

I never will forget the day when you and I went all the way
I was the first for you and you for me
I've still got the truck that we loved in it takes me back there now and then
Back to '59 in my memory

And baby I'm yours I'll love you always...

    MemoryIn June 1978 I left for Air Force basic training, I left behind the fist girl I ever made love to, we were going to be married after my technical training. 2 months latter she married some other guy, so much for eternal love. I got an email from her, she regretted what she did, she cheated on me, and got pregnant from this other guy, back then you got married when that happened. Every time I play this song (on my guitar) I think of her. She asked my forgiveness, I told her I never was mad at her, I was sad for what could have been. She said that I was the the one that got away, I told her she just didn't now the pain she was spared, that I was a scoundrel, a drunk, I cheated on my wife, that getting rid of me was the best for her. I still think of her though, Kay, I still love you, and as my fist love I always will!!
