"Cherry Red" as written by and John Hiatt....
I was thinking back to the first time we meet
Over
You were waving goodbye in a cherry red Corvette
And you lips were to
Cherry red that is
With the skies so blue
It was almost mean and your eyes were to
So blue that is
And I am to
And my heart burns cherry red for you

[Chorus:]
Now my heart burns cherry red for you
Like a fire of beechwood
'Cause I don't like it
But you get some cut one match will strike
And the embers glow till the wee small hours
When old seems almost new
That's when my heart burns cherry red for you

It was cherry red with the custom flames
At the hot rod show, when the Kingsmen came
And that bass guitar it rattled my frame
And it shook you to
The Corvette was Big Daddy Ross design
Get you picture for a dollar and have it signed
First you've got yours then I've got mine
And my heart burned cherry red for you

[Chorus:]
That's when my heart burns cherry red for you
That's when my heart burns cherry red for you
That's when my heart burns cherry red for you

Well that big blue sky it sure looked real
Like you were going to California to make a deal
With the God of youth, with the man of steel
Waving toodle loo
Now if I was young I might track you down
But this old picture is all I've found
Now my bones are shaking
My teeth are ground down
But my heart burns cherry red for you

[Chorus:]

That's when my heart burns cherry red
That's when my heart burns cherry red
That's when my heart burns cherry red for you
