"Tim McGraw" as written by Liz Rose and Taylor Swift....
He said the way my blue eyes shined
Put those Georgia stars to shame that night
I said: "That's a lie."
Just a boy in a Chevy truck
That had a tendency of gettin' stuck
On back roads at night
And I was right there beside him all summer long
And then the time we woke up to find that summer had gone

But when you think "Tim McGraw"
I hope you think my favorite song
The one we danced to all night long
The moon like a spotlight on the lake
When you think happiness
I hope you think "that little black dress"
Think of my head on your chest
And my old faded blue jeans
When you think Tim McGraw
I hope you think of me

September saw a month of tears
And thankin' God that you weren't here
To see me like that
But in a box beneath my bed
Is a letter that you never read
From three summers back
It's hard not to find it all a little bitter sweet
And lookin' back on all of that, it's nice to believe

But when you think "Tim McGraw"
I hope you think my favorite song
The one we danced to all night long
The moon like a spotlight on the lake
When you think happiness
I hope you think "that little black dress"
Think of my head on your chest
And my old faded blue jeans
When you think Tim McGraw
I hope you think of me

And I'm back for the first time since then
I'm standin' on your street
And there's a letter left on your doorstep
And the first thing that you'll read

Is when you think "Tim McGraw"
I hope you think my favorite song
Someday you'll turn your radio on
I hope it takes you back to that place
When you think happiness
I hope you think "that little black dress"
Think of my head on your chest
And my old faded blue jeans
When you think Tim McGraw
I hope you think of me

Oh, think of me
Mmm

You said the way my blue eyes shined
Put those Georgia stars to shame that night
I said, "That's a lie."

    General CommentThis song reminds me a lot of Deanna Carter's song Strawberry Wine. I swear, it's the same thing only ten years later. I'm not saying that either are bad songs, they are just very similar. Anyone else?

    General CommentI do agree with CaramelMacchiato that it reminda me of Strawberry Wine. It's just summer love lost.. and how September changes things. "My biggest fear was September, when he had to go"
    and I seriously feel the same way. Even though it's august.. summer has just ended and so has my 8 month relationship.. first love. it sucks. and my favorite song to sing was its your love and my best friend

    General CommentWell it's obvious through the words exactly what the song is about.

    I adore it. I think a lot of teenage girls, including me, can relate to it and picture that one boy in our heads. :o) It's really sweet.

    I also love the fact that she's really 16 years old too. Just a little thang! And she has an amazing ability and is the cutest!

    General CommentIt means that this girl is reminiscing about the future she had with her boyfriend, and she is wishing it could be the same it had been. She is missing him, yet moving on with her life. I really relate to it.
