"First Girl I Loved" as written by and Robin Williamson....
First girl I loved
Time has come I will sing the sad goodbye song
When I was seventeen, I used to know you
And I haven't seen you now in so many years
And the last time I saw you
You said you joined the Church of Jesus
But me I remember your long red hair
Falling in our faces as I kissed you

I just want you to know I just had to go
I just want you to know I just had to grow
And you're probably married now
With a house and car and all
And you turned into a grown-up female stranger
If I was lyin' by you now, I wouldn't be here at all

Well we parted so hard
Me rushing 'round New York with a guitar
Making love to people I didn't even like to see
And I still sometimes think of you
As I lay here in the six at morning
And in the lonely midnight
I've got to hold your face before me

I just want you to know I just had to go
I just want you to know I just had to grow
And you're probably married now
With kids and all
And you turned into a grown-up female stranger
If I was lyin' by you now, I'd just have to fall

And I never slept with you
Though we must have made love a thousand times
'Cause we were just young
Didn't have no place to go

I just want you to know I just had to go
I just want you to know I just had to grow
So its goodbye, first love
And I hope you're fine
I have a sweet woman
Maybe someday she`ll have babies by me
(She pretty)
She`s a true friend of mine

    MemoryI love this song. Reminds me of my seventeen.

    "Well, I never slept with you
    Though we must have made love a thousand times."

    General CommentThese lyrics could not possibly have come out of Robin Williamson, it's just not possible. He wouldn't have written anything so boringly straightforward and asinine. I've noticed a lot of bland "impostor" songs that record companies probably forced on artists to either make them more palatable to the public or just to force their hand on them, and this surely must be one of them.
