"Indian Summer" as written by and Kelly Jones....
The tall weeds lay flat down
On the hard flat Kansas ground.
And a sad song in her head,
Kept blowin' round.

She barely even knew his name,
But she liked the way he played the game.
Everybody cheered,
When he scored that last touchdown

Indian Summer,
The wonder,
The hunger,
And the sound of distant thunder.
Indian Summer.

Tangled in a moment of truth.
Bottle of wine in a motel room.
Blue haze circled 'round
The cold gray moon.

While the wind chased the leaves outside.
Passion found a place to hide.
Late September heat,
Couldn't be denied.

Oh Indian Summer,
The wonder,
The hunger,
And the sound of distant thunder.
Indian Summer.

She never even finished school.
People like to talk, they can be so cruel.
Heard California was a place,
To start brand new.

So she left that dust bowl town.
Sometimes when the lone wind howls,
I wonder where we'd be,
If I never scored that last
Touchdown.

Summer.
The wonder,
The hunger,
And the sound of distant thunder.
Indian Summer.

Oh, whoa!

    General CommentIt's from the guy's point of view looking back ( I wonder where we'd be if I never scored that last touchdown) It's about a guy and a girl from 2 rival schools, the girl's a cheerleader, and the guy's a quarterback.. They met during summer, fell in love, she finds out she's pregnant.. He makes the winning touchdown ( at a game with scouts from big schools); she thinks it would be best for his future if her and her unborn child were to move away w/o him knowing. He was already willing to runaway with her so I'm assuming if he knew about the pregnancy, he would obviously go with her.. In the video it shows her in front of his house contemplating on whether she should get him or drive way (she drives away).. I'm almost certain I've got the description correct..
