"Mary's Song (Oh My My My)" as written by Liz Rose, Taylor Swift and Brian Maher....
She said
"I was seven, and you were nine
I looked at you like the stars that shined
In the sky, the pretty lights."
And our daddies used to joke about the two of us
Growing up and fallin' in love
And our mamas smiled, and rolled their eyes
And said, "Oh, my, my, my"

Take me back to the house in the backyard tree
Said you'd beat me up; you were bigger than me
You never did, you never did
Take me back when our world was one block wide
I dared you to kiss me, and ran when you tried
Just two kids, you and I
Oh, my, my, my, my

Well, I was sixteen when suddenly
I wasn't that little girl you used to see
But your eyes still shined, like pretty lights
And our daddies used to joke about the two of us
They never believed we'd really fall in love
And our mamas smiled, and rolled their eyes
And said, "Oh, my, my, my"

Take me back to the creek beds we turned up
Two AM, ridin' in your truck
And all I need is you next to me
Take me back to the time we had our very first fight
Slammin' of doors 'stead of kissin' goodnight
You stayed outside till the morning light
Oh, my, my, my, my

A few years had gone and come around
We were sittin' at our favorite spot in town
And you looked at me, got down on one knee

Take me back to the time when we walked down the aisle
Our whole town came, and our mamas cried
You said, "I do," and I did too
Take me home where we met so many years before
We'll rock our babies on the very front porch
After all this time, you and I

And I'll be eighty-seven, you'll be eighty-nine
I'll still look at you like the stars that shine in the sky
Oh, my, my, my

    MemorySince I first heard this song, I thought of only one guy. And it's funny because I'm 19 and he's 26, but we've known each other for twelve years. The part where it says "our daddies used to joke about the two of us growing up and falling love and our mamas smiled and rolled their eyes" ... well, it really happened. The two of us lived in different states at the time, but every time one or the other visited, him and I were always together. Always. And after eleven years, he finally asked me out and we've been happily dating for a year, two months, and seven days :) <3 Couldn't be happier, and couldn't ask for a better man :)

    General Commentcouple problems with the words:

    "take me back when our world was one big lie," it's supposed to be
    "take me back when our world was one block wide," (that's one of my favorite lines of the song) and

    "take me back to the creek that's reaching dark" is supposed to be
    "take me back to the creek beds we turned up."

    makes more sense, no? :D

    and, i think this song is so sweet. my favorite part is "and our daddies used to joke about the two of us, they never believed we'd really fall in love," and for some reason i liked how it says about how their mamas cried at their wedding.

    i wonder who mary is.

    General Comment"Take me back to the time we had our very first fight
    Slamming a door instead of kissing goodnight"
    well...when me and the boy i was going out with had our first fight i had just heard this song. it was just like wow. and the next morning he called me really early just to say sorry! and this was just amazing! i thought of this song as my good luck charm...but then like most things...bad things happened and were no longer together...but i still love him more than anything!and well its kinda weird cuz hes a about a year and a half just about 2 years older than me!

    General CommentBasically I love this song! There's this kid that I like, and we are two years apart. Ironically enough, he's eighteen and I'm sixteen, so it's totally cute.
    "And our mommas smiled and rolled their eyes..."
    I love that part, because that's pretty muc what our parents do. Gosh I love this song!!!
